Named Wool Bay because it had a cutting in the cliff wide enough to roll a bale of wool down to the beach, this small seaside town, situated between Stansbury and Coobowie, once served as a port for the district's farms and pastoral runs.
Just 224 kilometres from Adelaide, Wool Bay is the perfect place to leave behind a fast-paced life, lie back, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet with its sandy beaches, great fishing and moderate year-round weather.
Things to do:

Formerly known as 'Pickering', the town was founded in 1876 and was a wool, grain and lime exporting town. It took its current name in 1940 and the remains of the uniquely designed lime kilns, can be seen on the cliff top
