Although it ceased being a town in the 1970s, its Heritage-listed jetty and old mining implements are a reminder that the district was once Australia’s primary source of gypsum for plaster and cement. It is highly likely that almost every older house in southern suburban Australia has Inneston gypsum in it, shipped from Stenhouse Bay. THOMPSON BEACH 70 kilometres from Adelaide map reference G8 Thompson Beach is part of the Samphire Coast with good walking trails at both ends of the town. Thompson Beach is a popular spot for catching Blue Swimmer crabs, so be sure to pack your crab rake and tub. WALLAROO 156 kilometres from Adelaide map reference D5 A deep-sea port and home to the Spencer Gulf prawn fleet, it’s a popular holiday town, complete with a multi-million dollar marina development. The old waterfront still echoes the era when the triangle mined, smelted and delivered copper and other metals to the world. Visit the Wallaroo Heritage & Nautical Museum to relive this bustling time in Wallaroo's history. You will find a range of accommodation including a beachfront caravan park, holiday homes or choose a self-serviced apartment that looks out over the marina. The long, wide northern beaches feature an eclectic array of beach shacks used by generations of South Australians for a relaxed beachside holiday. Sea life thrives under the town jetty, making this a popular spot for both anglers and divers. Cast your line from the jetty or head out with the local experts on a fishing charter. Back on dry land, seafood is fresh and plentiful with a variety of restaurants and cafés to choose from and art enthusiasts will enjoy a visit to Art Spot Gallery.
