Just over 2 hours' drive (200kms) from Adelaide CBD, Stansbury is located on Oyster Bay and nestled between Port Vincent and Edithburgh on the eastern coast of Yorke Peninsula. Stansbury has always been a popular holiday destination with good fishing, crabbing, swimming and snorkelling. It is also famous for its oysters, farmed in oyster beds just off the coast.

Dolphins can often be seen frolicking in the bay at mornings and evenings. The town offers seasonal beach and jetty fishing and there is a boat ramp and swimming pontoon at the jetty. Best catches include tommy ruff (Australian herring), garfish, silver whiting, snook and mullet and if you have a boat, snapper, flathead and the incomparable King George Whiting, Australia's dearest plate fish. The famous blue swimmer crabs are normally on the bite between September and April and can be caught by nets off the jetty or by raking at low tide.

Children will love the well equipped and fenced playground on the foreshore. For Mum and Dad, there are plenty of shaded barbecue and picnic facilities.

Stansbury boasts a cafe (Blue Lime), a FoodWorks Supermarket, an excellent butcher, a pharmacy, post office, hairdresser, local history museum, craft shop and service station. The Dalrymple Hotel on the foreshore, has great food, cold beer and choice South Australian wines. For the sporting enthusiast, Stansbury has a nine hole golf course, tennis and basketball courts, indoor and outdoor bowls, soccer, cricket and football.

The Stansbury Seaside Markets commence in October and run through to Easter. They are on a Saturday morning, as well as on New Year's Eve and are located along the foreshore. They sell an amazing variety of goods, ranging from local produce, emu oil, craft, wines, art, jewellery, bakery items and hot and cold food and drinks.
