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.

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.
