Smoky Bay

Smoky Bay

With a beautiful bay, beaches ideal for swimming and a thriving oyster industry, Smoky Bay is a seaside town for those in need of relaxation.


As a well-known fishing destination, you won’t find anywhere more stress-free than Smoky Bay. It’s really that relaxing!

Bag out fishing at the jetty or use the boat ramp and explore the bay, and you can’t pay a visit without tasting a plump, delicious oyster from the pristine waters near town. Stay a while at one of the two caravan parks, take a swim or look for razorfish (protective footwear and gloves are recommended). You can also try your luck catching some crabs!

Whatever you do – even if it’s nothing at all – enjoy your time in the beautiful Smoky Bay!

Things To Do


Buy oysters straight from the source

Well, pretty much straight from the source – stop by the General Store and pick up those fresh, fresh oysters by the dozen.


Visit Laura Bay Conservation Park

This park has everything for those looking to explore the coastal environment: a great walking trail, excellent swimming, a rugged limestone coastline and over 100 species of bush and seabirds. Camp, and make the most of the cliff-top fishing.

Play some golf

While it may not be as long as the Nullarbor Links course that starts in Ceduna, the Smoky Bay Golf Club still offers 18 holes to prospective golfers.

Hit the surf at St Mary’s

While it’s for intermediate surfers, St Mary’s beach is also a great place to watch the waves and maybe get some great photos of the coast.
