Things To Do

Explore, Indulge, Enjoy.

Stansbury is a great place to enjoy the local sights, and for venturing further afield to see and experience everything the Southern Yorke Peninsula has to offer.

Stansbury Seaside Markets

The award winning Stansbury Seaside Markets was the first of its kind on Yorke Peninsula. Meander along the picturesque foreshore and meet the makers, creators and designers behind the wonderful craft and produce on offer. Together with fashion, books, toys and more, there is something for everyone.

For Market Dates

Fish all year round

Boaties will love the three lane concrete boat ramp which is situated near the town jetty. Land based fishers can drop in a line and try their luck catching the famous King George Whiting, seasonal garfish, tommies and squid.
