SA Memory. South Australia past and present, for the future


Paskeville was named after General Paske, the brother-in-law of South Australian Governor from 1877 to 1883, Sir William Jervois.

Following the opening of the Kadina to Port Wakefield railway in 1878 Paskeville grew around a station on the line.

Paskeville is famous as the location of the Biennial Yorke Peninsula Field Days, held in September and which attract up to 50,000 visitors. The field days began in 1895 and now showcases a wide variety of rural and agricutural products and services.

The hotel at Paskeville was first licenced in March 1882 and briefly known as the Railway Hotel before being renamed the Paskeville Hotel in 1883, reverting to the Railway Hotel from 1888 to 1981 when it was again named the Paskeville Hotel. From 1921 to 1976 members of the Liddy family held the licence.
