Stansbury  South Australia

Washed by the calm waters of a protected bay on the lower east coast of Yorke Peninsula, Stansbury is becoming an increasingly popular holiday spot for both road travellers and recreational sailors.

The town looks out over Gulf St Vincent waters tailored to swimming, diving and skiing. The town was originally known as Oyster Bay, but while one school believes the name stems from the succulent shellfish, another claims it was taken from the name of a sheep run operated by pioneer settler Alfred Weaver.

At one time ketches ran a brisk trade ferrying wheat and lime and cement produced in local kilns across the gulf to Port Adelaide, but these days relaxation and water recreation are the main games in Stansbury.

Fishing from tinnies or from the jetty is a major pastime, and photographers and strollers find inspiration and beauty in the technicoloured sky as the sun sets over a chain of salt lakes.

Housed in the region's original school and headmaster's cottage, the Stansbury Museum's collection gives visitors a flashback into the district's past.
