Price is a locality and township on Yorke Peninsula in South Australia.[2] It is within the District Council of Yorke Peninsula local government area and is 131 kilometres (81 mi) north west of the state capital, Adelaide.

The township, which was proclaimed on 3 August 1882, is near the northern boundary of the Hundred of Cunningham.

The principal local industries are grain farming and salt production. In the case of the latter, sea salt is harvested from coastal salt pans.

Tourism facilities are limited to the Wheatsheaf Hotel, established 1886, and a caravan park.

Price, although not right on the coast, has a causeway running to a mangrove fringed tidal creek, Wills Creek, which connects it with the sea (Gulf St Vincent). At the end of the causeway there is a public boat ramp. Once outside the creek, fishing is plentiful.

Wills Creek is a very sheltered anchorage for boats and in earlier times it was from here that bagged salt and grain was loaded onto ketches for export. These products are now transported in bulk form by road.

At the 2006 census, Price and the surrounding district had a population of 256.[1]
