    This sleepy fishing village has much to offer

    Tranquil and picturesque, this village lies along the Eyre Peninsula between Streaky Bay and Elliston. By day, the quiet harbor is used by local fisherman who diligently wait for their afternoon catch. Visitors have long been attracted to the town by the calm bay which is can be used for water sports, from sea kayaking to sailing. While you stay in a Venus Bay vacation rental, you can hike along the trails to watch fluking whales out in the ocean, surf the continual swells or amble through the wetlands to spot a whole host of colorful avifauna.

    Ocean adventures in Venus Bay

    There's never a dull moment when you stay at a Venus Bay vacation rental. If you love the ocean, this is a resort area that ticks all the boxes. You can while away your days gliding across the sea on kayaks, riding the waves on surf boards, water skiing across the calm bay or hoisting the main sail to take advantage of the year-round sea breeze. Alternatively, relax on one of the nearby beaches and work on the tan, throwing yourself into the sea occasionally to cool off. Wildlife lovers also have much to look out for when vacationing in Venus Bay.

    A surprising number of attractions

    For such a small place, Venus Bay has a surprising number of attractions to keep you busy. Double up at Cape Liptrap with a visit to the coastal park and the lighthouse. Built in the early 20th century and situated high up above the sea, the lighthouse is still in operation today. Looking somewhat similar to a quint Cornish fishing village, the pretty nearby town of Walkerville was a port built to transport lime, and some of the old kilns nestled in the cliffs can still be seen. The Talia Caves are also well worth an afternoon of exploration.

    Distinct seasons in Venus Bay

    Though Venus Bay experiences distinct seasons, it welcomes visitors all year round with each month offering something unique. During spring, which falls between September and November, the days are changeable, but typically warm and sunny. The summer season is the busiest and if you'd like to visit during this time, be sure to book your Venus Bay vacation rental early. The temperature drops a little in fall, and the winters can get cold, but rarely drop below freezing. Though few visitors come at that time, those who do are treated to a wonderfully peaceful place.

    The largest population of Australian sea lions

    While you are staying in a Venus Bay vacation rental, be sure to drive down to Point Labatt. Here, standing on top of the looming cliffs, you can spot a large colony of noisy Australian sea lions which lie out on the rocks and bask in the sun. It's the largest population of their kind, thriving because of the squid- and crab-rich ocean. There's an estimated 50 sea lions in total as well as Australian and New Zealand fur seals. The cliffs are also the nesting grounds for coastal birds and raptors including sea hawks, white-bellied eagles, falcons and terns.
