Traditional weekend shacks were the first to find this little piece of heaven and now sit alongside some stunning new beach houses that line the bay. With no roads in between the only thing between you and the water is the white sandy beach.


  • Seafood. Black Point offers a relaxing lifestyle revolving around fishing, swimming, sailing, boating, crabbing and beach activities. Catch your own seafood basket...rake the shallows for crabs, dive for scallops just off shore or cast a line for your fill of King George Whiting, garfish or Tommy roughs.

Cellular (mobile) telephone network reception may not be available in many areas especially those distant from cellular network repeater towers normally located along the major highways and near larger townships. Hilly terrain will also effect reception. In an emergency seek higher ground. Some networks provide a poor coverage in regional and rural areas. It is generally considered that the best reception is available from either Telstra or Optus when in areas such as Yorke Peninsula.

For emergency services including police, fire services and ambulance call 000 from any telephone and ask the operator to connect you. Such calls are placed without charge to the calling party.
