The town of Clayton Bay hugs a small, shallow bay dotted by reedy islands. More experienced boat owners and fishermen head for the open waters of Lake Alexandrina, just minutes away.

Clayton Bay is perched across the river from the north-east tip of Hindmarsh Island on the Murray River, Lake Alexandrina, the Coorong Waterway and the myriad of protected creeks and channels which surround the islands of the Mundoo Hindmarsh Island system.

It's home to the Clayton Bay Classic Picnic - an annual casual gathering for those interested in classic motorcars, sailing boats, aeroplanes, model trains, motorcycles and other vehicles. People are invited to bring a picnic to Clayton Bay for a day of show and tell on the foreshore.

See more of the Fleurieu Peninsula - a coastal playground famed for its laidback lifestyle, beach breaks for surfers of all levels of experience and top fishing spots.

It's a paradise for divers and snorkellers, with dramatic shipwrecks and stunning marine life, including the famed Leafy Seadragon.

Enjoy some of the best produce and vineyards in Australia. The Fleurieu Peninsula is home to some prestigious winemaking regions, including McLaren Vale. The history of winemaking in this region goes all the way back to 1842 and it consistently produces some of the best drops you'll ever taste.

There's also national parks, golf courses, top quality cuisine and more.


Clayton: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Cloncurry/Mary Kathleen Memorial Park Complex

The Cloncurry/Mary Kathleen Memorial Park Complex is located just off the main highway that runs through town with ample parking for cars, caravans and motorhomes. This is a perfect place to stop and take a break on your journey. It has something for the whole family - with a playground for the kids, amenities and a shaded picnic/barbecue area set in the beautiful parkland. Stretch your legs and go for a 10 minute walk up the lookout past the unique water feature and take in the spectacular panoramic view of Cloncurry and the surrounding rugged landscape. Enjoy the free outdoor display featuring historic mining, rail and farm equipment including a unique 1941 Ford V8 Rail Ambulance which was used when roads were impassible. The former Visitor Information Centre was originally the Oona Police Station building, which was then moved to Dobbyn and again moved to Mary Kathleen as a police station. After the mine shut down and the town dismantled, it was relocated to its current site and used as the Visitor Information Centre until 2013. The park also incorporates the Cloncurry Unearthed Visitor Information Centre and Museum.
