Marion Bay: Yorke Peninsula SA

Marion Bay SA is now one of the most visited parts of South Australia's Yorke Peninsula.

Located at the southern tip of Yorke Peninsula S.A. Marion Bay is popular with people all year round, looking for weekend getaways and particularly SA short holidays. Marion Bay fishing has become well known throughout Australia and was featured in Rex Hunt's fishing adventure series.

Marion Bay Jetty is the comfortable option, and where you are likely to catch some of the biggest squid close to shore. From March to June each year Marion Bay beach is the location for mullet, and around the bend at Brown's Beach salmon are plentiful.

For those more avid fishermen, there are a number of fishing charters that can take you out into deeper waters for snapper, crayfish and even shark.

Marion Bay accommodation is easy to find, and one of the most patronised is Marion Bay Holiday Villas; a group of 8 self contained luxury holiday villas that make the perfect base while you explore Marion Bay South Australia or near by Innes National Park. There are outdoor sinks where you can clean, scale and fillet your fish, and BBQ areas; free for guests to use.

Innes National Park is also as well known, but for scenic walking trails, wild life, camping and some of the best views you will see in South Australia; infact Australia wide. Stenhouse Bay has crystal clear water, and is popular with divers looking to dive on sunken shipwrecks.

South Australia's most prestigious surfing event is held in Innes National Park during the October long weekend, and attracts professional surfers from all over Australia. If you are looking for Innes National Park accommodation, Marion Bay Holiday Villas are again the ideal rental accommodation.

Marion Bay weather is very mild, which is another reason why it is popular as weekend getaways for couples and families looking to escape the Summer heat, and also ideal during the cooler months, with many areas protected by cliffs. Winter is when many go to stay at Marion Bay and see the Southern Right Whales from May to September.

Directions to Marion Bay couldn't be easier, and while you are there you might like to spend a week, and explore the rest of fabulous Yorke Peninsula.

Marion Bay Yorke Peninsula is just one of the holiday destinations that are popular for people living in Adelaide South Australia.

I have visited Marion Bay South Australia and was amazed at the scenery. It has to be one of the most scenic spots in Australia.
