Welcome to Stansbury

Stansbury Jetty


Stansbury Pines

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 a 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 containing an “R”.  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 and Stansbury oysters.

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 and adult gym equipment.

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.  Situated along the foreshore is a selection of adult gym equipment.

A 6.3km coastal walking trail from the Jetty 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 in the warmer months and fishing for mullet in the autumn months. 

The Coastal Garden was developed at the base of the jetty after the Tidy Towns and Stansbury Primary School received a Coastal Community Grant.  It provides information for home owners of the town to help them establish gardens that are planted with indigenous species.  On-site signage assists the broader community to learn about the species used in our garden.

Visitors have a choice of accommodation including the Stansbury Foreshore Caravan Park which features beach front lawn sites and deluxe ensuite villas and cabins, a modern camp kitchen and amenities block.  There are many other holiday homes, motels and units available for holiday rental within the town.  The Dalrymple Hotel, overlooking Oyster Bay, provides a wonderful range of food, cold beer and a great
selection of South Australian wines.
