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. Mornings and 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 beginning with “R”. Call into the Stansbury Visitor Centre to get your free Yorke Peninsula Fishing Guide. 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 to cook at home.

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. The 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 5km coastal walking trail from the Foreshore Caravan Park to Pitts Cutting offers great views across the Gulf of St Vincent. During winter and spring native vegetation can be seen in full bloom 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 and fishing for mullet in the autumn months.
