Like most of the towns on Yorke Peninsula, Port Vincent is an old port, and was the main entry point for people and goods to and from the Yorke Peninsula until a good road was built from Port Wakefield in around 1949.

Port Vincent is an ideal location for fishing, boating and sailing. The attractive and peaceful bay provides swimming for families and the kids will love the pontoon. Dolphins often frequent the area and the beachfront is a great place to relax with a book or enjoy some fish and chips. Visit the award winning Marine Studies Centre, where students of Port Vincent Primary School have set up their own marine life study centre. Visitors are welcome by appointment during school hours.

Port Vincent visitor information outlet, located opposite the jetty, can provide information on the local area, as well as maps and brochures.

The Port Vincent section of the walk starts near the jetty and follows the Ralph Munro walk south, following the signs along the back beach, and continuing along the clifftop. Cyclists will now head towards the highway, joining up with the walking trail near Devils Gully.

There is a shelter with seating and a small water tank located at Devils Gully, just south of Port Vincent.

From here, it's a shared walk/bike trail heading south, before cyclists once again head back to the highway, and walkers follow a beach trail around the cliff face to Beach Hut. At this point the trail becomes a shared trail until entering Stansbury.

Originally known as Oyster Bay, Stansbury is still a producer of oysters and the oyster farms can be seen out in the bay. Visit one of the oyster farms (on land) to purchase local oysters or learn more about them on a tour. Dolphins can often be seen frolicking in the bay, with mornings and evenings being the best viewing times. Stansbury also has great seasonal beach and jetty fishing.

Stansbury visitor information outlet, located in Weaver Street, can provide information on the local area, as well as maps and brochures.

Please refer to our Trail Notes for further information.
