From tip to toe, the peninsula was abuzz with activity and tourists soaking up all our region has to offer.
There were so many events â€” from markets to the showâ€™nâ€™ shine, Rusty and Dusty, Yorkes Classic, the inaugural Big Gig and much more.
Surveying those in attendance, it seemed a lot were up for the weekend from Adelaide.
Local businesses reported good trade and many accommodation venues were booked out. Beaches were packed as though it were summer with people playing cricket, kayaking, swimming and, of course, fishing.
Unfortunately, the weather turned on Monday, but this was something which couldnâ€™t be controlled.
Another factor which did put a dampener on a perfect weekend was the return trip home on Monday, and this was something which could be controlled.
For whatever reason, the traditional traffic jam coming off the peninsula and through Port Wakefield seemed to stretch much further and take longer than in recent holiday periods.
Was this because there were extra people holidaying on Yorkes this long weekend? Maybe the traffic management plan wasnâ€™t as good? Or is it simply an ongoing problem which isnâ€™t going to go away and needs to be addressed with a better, long-term solution?
Some commented people should simply put up with it; itâ€™s only an extra hour or so and only happens a few times a year.
But it was worrying some of the tourists said the traffic jam would stop them returning to the peninsula.
Nobody likes to be stuck in slow-moving traffic, particularly when you are keen to get home and get organised for the week.
Surely key stakeholders can sit down and work out a better solution.
Could there be a system in which holidaymakers in various towns are asked to leave at various times? Are there dirt roads which could be utilised? Do temporary traffic lights need to be put up at the key intersections just for these weekends? Or is the controversial bypass idea something which needs to be revisited?
