Winulta was a town in the Australian state of South Australia on northern Yorke Peninsula around 10 km from Clinton on the Clinton-Maitland road. It was first settled for farming around 1876. The earliest farmers were William Short, Thomas Kenny and John Sharrad.[6]

The nearby "Hundred of Tiparra School" opened in 1884, was renamed "Winulta School" in 1891 and closed in 1950.[7]

Winulta is located within the federal division of Grey, the state electoral district of Narungga and the local government area of the Yorke Peninsula Council.[5][4][3]
