beach at Black PointCentrally located on the eastern coast of the Peninsula, Black Point is a popular holiday destination, jutting into the water to create a beautiful white crescent beach. Swimming, fishing crabbing and water-skiing are all popular activities, and there is an impressive range of accommodation.

The Narungga people called it Gudliwardi which means 'dirty tail', but the early settlers named it Black Point.

Once a 19th century quarantine station where 50 people died of the measles in five days, Black Point has turned its fortunes around and is now one of the most prized pieces of real estate in South Australia.
