Stenhouse Bay is a small settlement at the southern end of the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia, on the eastern side of Innes National Park. A wide variety of fish species can be caught off beaches in the park or the Stenhouse Bay Jetty.

Fish in secluded locations like Stenhouse Bay, or join other anglers on the salmon run at Browns Beach. Fishing guides are available from the Visitors Centre in Marion Bay. Professional spearfishing operators organize guided tours around Stenhouse Bay for the perfect fish catch.

Sweeps and  boar-fishes are the most common fishes you may come across but not only. In close proximity to the beach, the Stenhouse Bay Campground is a great location to set up a base camp for exploring the rest of the park as caravans and generators are permitted. Pit toilets and barbecue facilities available nearby.

Alternatively, many other accommodation options are also available in close distance to the spot, mostly close to Marion Bay. The best period to visit the location is during the summer months. Stenhouse Bay is also a stunning section of Innes national park where you can whale watch from the cliff tops during the winter months. Don’t miss it!
