Yatina is a town in the Mid North region of South Australia. The town is located in the District Council of Orroroo Carrieton, 249 kilometres (155 mi) from the state capital, Adelaide on the RM Williams Way. The town's name derives from the Aboriginal name of a nearby black rock.

Yatina was proclaimed as a town in July 1874 and the first town lots were sold in September that year. The Yatina Hotel was also built that same year. Early hopes for the new town were disappointed in 1877 when a promised railway extension bypassed the town. In 1886, Yatina's population was 80, with an estimate of 100 residents the next year.
