Did You Know?

Stansbury was originally known as Oyster Bay due to the abundance of oysters found in the Bay. The town was officially proclaimed in 1873 by Governor Sir Anthony Musgrave in honour of a friend – Mr Stansbury. The first settler in the district was Alfred Weaver who built a shearing shed in 1846 where Stansbury now stands.
