Fishermans Bay, South Australia
As a permanent resident of Fishermans Bay I would like to say that we have two Playgrounds which both have large sunshades over them, two swimming pontoons, barbeque area near boat ramp , eastern end, with another one being built at the western end, Lawned picnic area. There is one shop that has hot food as well as normal deli items, fuel ( no LPG), Bait, Ice & fishing tackle. There are public toilets and a cold outside shower to rinse off sea water. No caravan park although legally as we do not have a park one can stay over night west of the toilet block or by western playground. No camping on beach, no bon fires as shacks are too close to each other and we have to rely on CFS coming from Port Broughton which is 6 k's away.
Beaches are now dry areas during set hours.
Ski-ing is done although the only legal area for ski-ing is in Port Broughton and so skiers are asked to remain on far side of the bay for the safety of swimmers. Failure to do so could result in an accident and then ski-ing laws would have to be adhered to which would mean no ski-ing at all and that would be a pity for all concerned. Speed limit in Fishermans Bay is 30k's which make it safe for walkers, bike riders and motorists. Safe area for children as there is only one way out of the town and that gives then freedom not enjoyed in the bigger towns and cities.
Rate payers in Fishermans Bay have use of the Library in Port Broughton as well as other services such as aPostal Delivery, Medical Clinic & Hospital, Garbage Pick up, Rubbish Dump (expensive like most council dumps) Rural Transaction Centre which includes banking, centrelink and medicare.
Lovely area to holiday, peaceful place to live.
