Ardrossan is a thriving town on the east coast of the Yorke Peninsula, about 150 km from Adelaide, South Australia. Population is approximately 1,300, with a wide range of age groups, employment, community and sporting clubs. It is little wonder that the town is a holiday destination for many and special place in which to live for others. Situated on top of imposing red cliffs an easy 90 minute drive from Adelaide, Ardrossan is a thriving seaport and centre for agriculture. Spectacular scenery from a cliff top lookout, an abundance of blue swimmer crabs, great fishing, shipwrecks and an interesting history make this a great spot to while away relaxing days.

The Ardrossan Town Hall will then be open to all on Friday, 29th and Saturday, 30th March between 9am - 4pm.
