Edithburgh (pronEng|ˈiːdɨθbɝg) is a small town on the south-east corner of Yorke Peninsula in South Australia. Edithburgh is about convert|50|km|mi|abbr=on|lk=on west of Adelaide across Gulf Saint Vincent, but about convert|300|km|mi|abbr=on away by road.

Edithburgh has a jetty which, like many others on Yorke Peninsula, was once used to load grain and unload supplies for the town, but is now used mostly for recreational fishing. There is a small fishing and prawning fleet based there too.

The town is now overshadowed by the 55 wind turbines of the Wattle Point Wind Farm, just out of town to the southwest, and opened in April 2005.

Edithburgh is in the District Council of Yorke Peninsula, the South Australian House of Assembly electoral district of Goyder and the Australian House of Representatives Division of Wakefield.
