Old Jetty Pylons, Star of Greece Shipwreck & Beach Caves

Its no wonder why Port Willunga beach is one of the most adored southern beaches and one of the most photographed. Its soft sandy beach is overlooked by cliffs where fishermen once carved out caves to store their boats and nets, and the old Jetty pylons, also known as ‘the sticks’, are all that remain of this coastal village’s early days as a grain port.  The rotting timbers of the remains of the Star of Greece, a three-masted, iron cargo ship, which wrecked here in 1888 are also popular among divers.

Hidden Gem

Blanche Point Cliff Walk 

Between Port Willunga and Maslin Beach is a little cove known as Blanche Point. This ‘high up’ walk allows you breathtaking views right from the top of the cliffs that line the St Vincent Gulf waters. Starting from the sandy Star of Greece car park or Willunga Creek, navigate your way through the scrubby sands, past Lions Head point, and Chinaman Gully before reaching the extremely photogenic Blanche Point.
