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. Situated along the picturesque Stansbury foreshore beneath the magnificent Moreton Bay Fig trees, the free markets are a great family day out. They offer a wide variety of stalls including food, local produce, gifts, artwork, crafts, books, toys, fashion and more.
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.
History and Curiosities – Stansbury Museum
Located in the old School and Teacher’s residence built in 1878, the Museum houses many collections and displays including extensive shell, doll and gemstones, photographs, ladies’ apparel from by-gone days, early implements of the Pioneers and plenty of local history and curiosities. Contact the Museum direct to check opening hours. Phone: 0408 142 875.
Farm Fresh Oysters
There’s nothing like feasting on oysters straight from the ocean.
The pristine waters of Stansbury’s Oyster Bay provide perfect growing conditions. Oysters are available for purchase direct from the farmers. Or how about learning more by joining Pacific Estate Oysters as a “Deckie for a Day”.
Beautiful walking trails in and around town.
With over 6kms of trails, walkers can enjoy meandering along the Coastal Walking Trails from the jetty to Pitts Cutting south of Stansbury, taking in the great views across Gulf St Vincent. The trails incorporate rest areas, looking points and interpretative signage along the way.
Stansbury is also part of the Walk The Yorke trail which covers over 500kms of continuous shared walking and cycling trail.
The town also boasts a nine hole golf course, playgrounds, lawn bowls, adult gym equipment along the foreshore, tennis and basketball courts.
Explore Innes National Park
Why not plan a day trip and visit the stunning Innes National Park where emus, kangaroos and Tammar wallabies can be spotted. Inneston Village is a great place to explore on the Inneston Historic Walk, ruins of the Ethel shipwreck on Ethel Beach or visit the Cape Spencer Lighthouse. The West Cape Lookout boasts 360 degree views of the Park and is a great spot for a picnic. Book your vehicle entry before you go or use the self registration bay when you arrive.
Local Craft Beer
The Southern Yorke Peninsula region is considered the “Barley Capital of the World” and now has its own local craft brewery, Watsacowie Brewing Company offering beer tastings and sales. They also love supporting live music and often have acts on most weekends, together with hosting local and visiting caterers who provide a delicious variety of food. Located in Minlaton, only a short 20 minute drive away, it is well worth a visit.
