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.

Nice, wide jetty with views of silos, ferry terminal, WWH & more. Great spot for fishing. Water was clear enough to see fish in some spots.

A working jetty for ships loading grain! Impressive. Have successfully fished from the jetty many years ago! It is still a popular fishing spot !

Our stay in this historic, but beautifully renovated, building was most enjoyable.
Jane and Brett were wonderful hosts with vast local knowledge.
Every amenity was first class.
The breakfast provisions were more than adequate and the homemade biscuits and cake that Jane had made were delicious.
The property is well situated in town - right on the foreshore.
The views of the sea and sunsets are uninterrupted.
Definitely recommended.

Enjoying a weekend in town, we walked the full length of the jetty and enjoyed some lovely views. You can access the full length if grain ships are not berthed otherwise limited to first part. Seems popular with fishermen. Parts of it are beginning to show signs of rot and wear but quite safe for adults. Not sure for young children or prams other than the first part.

Long jetty with great views. Really interesting to see the conveyer belt taking grain to the ships. I love big ships and this is a great place to have a close look at them. Judging from the black stains on the jetty I imagine there's good squidding here as well, but I haven't had much luck

Visited on Tuesday 2nd March. This was one of the longest jettys we had seen on our visit to Yorke Peninsula, well worth checking out for yourself.

Came here to check it out, particularly since it is quite long. Not a big fisherperson myself, but still

Wallaroo Jetty on South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula runs 869 metres into water that is up to 10 metres deep and is one of the very few working regional jetties.

Access is from Jetty Road. With two car parks available, one adjacent to the Boatshed, with some disabled parks available. The other is a large dirt car park on the other side of Jetty Road. Café Mia has a small park which appears to be restricted to customers. Walking to the jetty and the right is a defined swimming area. There is no beach here but the foreshore is really rocky. The beach area is further north.

The first section of the jetty has a concrete surface easily accessible for wheelchairs etc. This concrete surface also acts as a roadway giving access to the end third of the jetty which becomes under Australian Customs control when an international ship is in port as it was the day I was there. On the right is a dedicated walkway, popular with fishermen angling for that catch or perhaps a Blue Swimmer Crab or two. About halfway down the jetty, the main surface changes to wooden planks that are very uneven and with instances of damaged edges making access more difficult, although concrete walkways do continue for most of the central access. A smaller jetty is perpendicular to the main jetty with access for fishing.

Large grain ships visit mainly during the summer months after the harvest to load grain. There was in International ship in port the day I was there so access to the end of the jetty was blocked by wire fences and gateways as it was under Customs control.

For recreational usage the jetty is a fisherman’s delight with limited facilities nearby except at the adjacent Café. Scuba divers also dive from the jetty to observe varied marine life that live amongst the pylons.

Return? As it is one of the toursity towns on the Copper Coast, probably will in conjunction with visiting some of the others on the Peninsula.
