Welcome to Stansbury
|Situated on the East coast of Yorke Peninsula in the shelter of
beautiful Oyster Bay… Stansbury is an ideal destination for
family holidays, fishing or just relaxing the hours away. The
safe beach and calm waters of the bay are ideal for swimming and
water skiing, with windsurfing
and kite surfing further out
along the spit.
Dolphins can often be seen frolicking in the bay,
evenings are the best times to see the dolphins in action. Stansbury offers seasonal beach and jetty fishing plus an
all-tide three lane boat ramp and a swimming pontoon situated at
the jetty. Stansbury caters well for the fisherman.
Crabbing season is in all the months containing an “R”. If you prefer to have someone else catch your
fish and do the hard work, there is a Fish Monger on the edge of
town; you can purchase your fresh fish and Stansbury oysters.
There is a great, well-equipped and fenced children’s playground
on the foreshore, which is a short walk from the town centre and
caravan park. The play equipment incorporates two play stations
providing a variety of activities for children of all ages and
adult gym equipment.
well-maintained foreshore offers plenty of barbeque and picnic
facilities, and shaded areas are dotted along the foreshore from
the jetty reserve right up to the caravan park entrance.

A 6.3km coastal walking trail from the
Pitts Cutting offers great views across the Gulf of St Vincent. During winter and spring native vegetation can be seen in full
along the cliff top walk.
Stansbury offers both jetty and boat fishing facilities with a
modern boat ramp and historic jetty catering for both the novice
and more serious fisherman. The Stansbury jetty is good for
catching blue crabs in the summer months, as well as squid,
mullet, garfish, tommies and snook at night under the jetty
lights. The Stansbury back beach is also great for raking blue
swimmer crabs in the warmer months and fishing for mullet in the autumn months.
The Coastal Garden was developed at the base of the
jetty after the Tidy Towns and Stansbury Primary School
received a Coastal Community Grant. It provides
information for home owners of the town to help them
establish gardens that are planted with indigenous
species. On-site signage assists the broader
community to learn about the species used in our garden.
