Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ok, So some friends and I Had come down from Alice Springs for a break. We had minimal fishing gear (two hand lines each, squid jigs and some extra hooks etc) we decided to give the jetty a go because I love fishing and I was helping my friend get involved in the sport. My first cast with the squid jig 10 seconds and I'm on!! My mate pipes up "blood show off" so I wind him in, not a bad size about 25cm body. I shake him off and cast straight back in. Bang I'm on again!! So I can say I found the jetty very productive!! especially when I caught a nice sized Australian salmon a couple of days later. The pier itself is very family friendly with a fenced area for the little ones and those who aren't confident in the water with a shelter for mum and dad to keep an eye out. All in all its a great pier for fishing, swimming, snorkeling and crabbing

Clearly we aren't great fisherpeople. But we enjoyed dropping our line off the jetty, watching the water below and wishing, hoping. This is a great tourist attraction and certainly kept us entertained for several afternoons.

Beautiful scenery! Even on a winters day it is hard not to enjoy the views along the jetty. During holiday season the jetty is packed with people fishing. It is great to see families enjoying some time together.

On the western side of South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula is the popular town of Moonta Bay. The jetty is L-shaped with a section jutting out to the right looking at the jetty. An enclosed swimming area is about halfway down with the wooden plank walkway being slightly uneven. Access is from a large car park with toilet facilities nearby.

To me what makes this jetty interesting is the shallow waters with rocky outcrops forming accessible rock pools. Steps from the jetty allow exploration of these. Similar rocks also are found on the beach. Narrow beaches are either side of the jetty and, when we were there, was seaweed strewn.

A BBQ area with seating is nearby as is the historic Methodist church bell.

While my partner tried to get a catch unsuccessfully, as the jetty is noted as a good fishing spot, I was exploring the area and enjoyed the walk along the beach and the jetty. The setting and colours make for a memorable jetty that would be spectacular at sunset.

Return? This is a spot that would make a good base for seeing other parts of the Peninsula – noted in the “Must Do” list.

Visited on Tuesday 3rd March. Another jetty we checked out on our drive around the Yorke Pensinsular beaches. Worth stopping to go for a stroll on.

And the beach as well. Not a great place, but sort of works. Probably more for fisherfolk, and probably a nice place for a vacation.
