The beautiful seaside town of Beachport boasts one of the longest jetties in South Australia, and rarely does a day go by without anglers of all ages trying their luck at landing a prized catch. A relaxed atmosphere prevails at this historic whaling port located on the north-western tip of Rivoli Bay, with the town offering a combination of scenic coastal splendour and opportunities for adventure.
Safe swimming abounds at the sandy beaches, with the mild conditions also proving perfect for a range of water sports. Inland, Lake George is a popular spot for locals and visitors, and is home to a wide variety of species including black swans and migratory birds.
The Pool of Siloam is unique to Beachport. With a salt concentration seven times greater than the sea, it is an ideal swimming spot creating unusual buoyancy, and has a reputation for its powerful healing properties.
Beachport is also a town steeped in history, with museums and historic buildings providing windows to the past. For those keen to step back even further in time, a large midden heap at Three Mile Rocks provides a fascinating reminder of the local Aboriginal heritage.
