Paskeville is the entrance to the Copper Coast


Paskeville is the entrance to the Copper Coast if you are travelling from Adelaide and you will find the Copper Coast Information Bay on the roadside. The railway line between Port Wakefield and Kadina opened in 1878, and the station at what is now known as Paskeville, was named for General Paske, brother-in-law of the governor of the time, General Jervois. A small farming community sprang up, which over the years has included a store and post office, bank, bakery, school and hotel. Now the township has a community club and farms that produce mainly wheat and barley grain crops. A large reservoir at Paskeville stores water for the Yorke Peninsula, piped from the River Murray.

Australia's oldest and largest Field Days are held in Paskeville biennially in September (odd years). They commenced in 1895 and are held over 3 days. The permanent site covers nearly 200 acres.
