This small but historic town at the top of the St Vincent Gulf is much more than just a petrol or convenience stop. Its history dates back 170 years when it became one of the early ports in South Australia, and then in later years became the main port for copper exports from Kapunda and Burra.

In 1956, Port Wakefield hosted the Australian Formula One Grand Prix championship which was won by Jack Brabham.

While in 2015, Port Wakefield became true to its name of the Gateway to the Yorke Peninsula by becoming the starting (or ending) point of the long distance Walk the Yorke trail.
