If you're looking for a quiet country haven, Yankalilla is for you. Set in the peaceful valley of the Bungala River, it's overlooked by the wooded hillsides of the southern Mount Lofty Ranges. Yankalilla is surrounded by old stone farmhouses, stockyards and gum trees. The bakery and Bavarian wursthouse are renowned for their produce. Stroll along the main street to see cottage architecture and lovingly maintained gardens. The nearby coastline offers plenty of sea scenery and Yankalilla is not far from seaside havens such as Normanville, Carrickalinga and Myponga Beach. Yankalilla is home to a number of quality bed and breakfast establishments, perfect for a romantic getaway. In August 1994 an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared on the wall of the Anglican church in Yankalilla. Since 1996 pilgrims have been coming to this church from all over the world. Yankalilla is the world's newest Marian Shrine. It is also the second known apparition of Mary in an Anglican church. See more of the Fleurieu Peninsula and a coastal playground famed for its laidback lifestyle, beach breaks for surfers of all levels of experience, and top fishing spots. It's a paradise for divers and snorkellers, with dramatic shipwrecks and stunning marine life, including the famed Leafy Seadragon. Enjoy some of the best produce and vineyards in Australia. The Fleurieu Peninsula is home to some prestigious winemaking regions, including McLaren Vale.

Christ Church Yankalilla


Christ Church Yankalilla was established in 1857 and is one of the earliest Anglican churches in South Australia. Containing many beautiful stained glass windows of historical significance, it provides a quiet ambience for prayer and meditation. It is the only church in the region which is open every day from 10am to 5pm.

Significant works of art by Barbara Robertson and Pro Hart are on display in the church.

The centre of worship for the Christ Church congregation is the 9.30am sung Eucharist (Holy Communion) every Sunday, using the Prayer Book for Australia service.

On August 24, 1994, a parisher saw what appeared to be an image of the Virgin Mary high on the back wall of the church. After two years, the "apparition" was acknowledged, and a wrought iron frame was placed around it. This attracted attention from around the world, bringing many pilgrims to the small town.
