Snorkeling in Wallaroo Jetty, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia Australia
The Wallaroo Jetty is an incredible 869 m / 2851 ft long. It became part of the Bulk Handling facility in 1958 and was opened to anglers in 1971. Wallaroo Jetty is also a favorite snorkeling destination, with tank refills and accessories available in the town. Large numbers of fish will welcome you as you glide between the jetty’s pylons, which are encrusted with many different forms of marine life, like Whiting fishes, snappers, squids, flat-heads, Tommy Ruffs, garfishes, salmons, mullets, crabs and prawns to mention a few.
The bottom can be a very silty, so take care not to stir it up. Enter via the swimming pool, to the right of the jetty. Take care not to get entangled in the many fishing lines and descend between the pylons. The spot is recommended for practitioners of all levels of difficulty while its maximum depth drops at 14 m/45 ft.
The National Trust Wallaroo Heritage and Nautical Museum is located on Jetty Rd and is worth a look to gain an understanding of the town’s maritime history. Jubilee Square is a perfect picnic spot with electric BBQ facilities and a children’s playground. Numerous accommodation options and leisure activities are offered to the visitors of the spot.
