Stansbury

Stansbury - Yorke Peninsula - South Australia

The ideal climate in Stansbury is reflected in the flock of water lovers that embrace the prospect of serene leisure, enjoying beach activities such as diving, swimming and water skiing. Quietly nestled on the dazzling waters of Oyster Bay in St Vincent Gulf, Stansbury enjoys a visually spectacular backdrop of Norfolk Pines and is a 204 kilometre drive west of Adelaide. The town professed to be home to the best oyster beds in the state and was consequently named Oyster Bay. Eventually the oyster beds were fished out and as with other South Australian towns distinguished by hereditary rank or social position, Stansbury was named after Governor Sir Anthony Musgrave's friend, Mr Stansbury.

Relax along the foreshore featuring one of the best children's playgrounds on the peninsula, barbecue and picnic facilities along with vibrant monthly seaside markets. Admire idyllic views of the town, bay and Gulf St Vincent from Mills' Gully Lookout on the edge of town and sample succulent oysters from local oyster farms, still a major industry in Stansbury.

Keen fishermen enjoy local seasonal catches of garfish, King George Whiting, Mullet, Tommies and Squid with Blue Swimmer Crabs netted from the jetty. The coastal trail and Schoolhouse Museum are also great points of interest for visitors to town.
