Stenhouse Bay Jetty
Yorke Peninsula

In 1913 a gypsum mine opened in Inneston and for nearly 40 years Stenhouse Bay Jetty was used to load gypsum from huge deposits at Inneston and Stenhouse Bay onto sailing ships. It was the mining lease that preserved a large area of Yorke Peninsula from clearing and now forms the Innes National Park. Stenhouse Bay was once a bustling town with over 500 residents but has now shrunk to a few houses with a pub and general store at the entrance of the National Park.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
