Edithburgh

4.4
Edithburgh is a small town on the south-east corner of Yorke Peninsula in the Australian state of South Australia. Edithburgh is about 50km west of Adelaide across Gulf St Vincent, but 226km away by road. At the 2011 census, the town had a population of 466.Edithburgh is in the Yorke Peninsula Council, the South Australian House of Assembly electoral district of Goyder and the Australian House of Representatives Division of Grey.HistoryIn the Narangga language of the indigenous Narungga people, Edithburgh was known by the place name Pararmarati. Some sources give the pronunciation 'Barram-marrat-tee'. The first European pioneers arrived in the 1840s and were sheep graziers and pastoralists. With closer settlement, in 1869 the Marine Board fixed a site for a jetty to service the developing farming district. An adjacent town was then surveyed, the layout closely emulating (on a smaller scale) that of Adelaide, with a belt of parklands. Edithburgh was named by Governor Sir James Fergusson after his wife Edith. The new jetty opened in 1873.
