Minlaton District School

Minlaton District School Introduction

Minlaton District School is located in the township of Minlaton on the Yorke Peninsula which is a premier wheat and barley growing district. Farms in the area also graze sheep and offer farmstay holidays to visitors. Beautiful coastal
scenery, excellent fishing and surfing and the protected bays of Spencer Gulf and the Gulf of St Vincent are only a short drive away.

Our school, established in 1990, provides education for primary students who live in close proximity to Minlaton and secondary students from farms and townships further away.
