Adelaide's Underwater Heritage Trail


Adelaide's Underwater Heritage Trail explores four shipwrecks located in Gulf St Vincent - the Grecian, Zanoni, Star of Greece and Norma.

These wrecks represent a variety of vessels associated with trade and development in South Australia during the nineteenth and early twentieth century's and spans the period of British shipbuilding from 1841 to 1893.

The remains demonstrate the four major types of materials used in sailing vessel construction during that era - wood, composite (wood and iron), iron and steel.

This trail extends from the Star of Greece, off Port Willunga, to the Zanoni, about 15 kilometres south east of Ardrossan, and includes a brochure and four underwater plaques placed adjacent to each wreck.

Port Willunga Beach


Port Willunga Beach is one Fleurieu Peninsula's most photographed beaches featuring the remains of the Port Willunga Jetty. Located approximately 35kms south of Adelaide, the beach is famous for its golden cliff faces, crystal clear waters and soft white sands - the type that squeaks between your toes. It is an ideal spot for those long beach walks on the wet sand, with only the sound of waves lapping at your feet.

Nestled on the edge of the cliff top is the Star of Greece restaurant, offering stunning views along the coast and named after a nearby shipwreck. Sections of the hull of the Star of Greece, which came to grief in 1888, remain on the ocean floor and make for a popular diving spot. At low tide parts of the wreck may still be visible from the shore.

Don't forget to also visit nearby Aldinga historic township, emerging as one of South Australia's best villages. From baked goods and cafes to clothing boutiques and local grocers, the strip has a great vibe. There is also great festivities including Fridays After Five (market throughout summer), concerts and small festivals.

Myponga Beach


Myponga Beach occupies a small valley that has been carved by Myponga Creek and is now partially filled with river and marine sediments forming a flat plain occupied by a few houses and an elongated lagoon and wetland that flows across the southern end of the beach. Houses and shacks line the rear of the beach; so much so a seawall has been built to protect some of the properties. Fifty-metre high grassy bluffs border each end of the beach, with rocks and reefs extending seaward. It is moderately steep and fronted by a narrow continuous bar, with waves averaging about 0.5 metres.

The beach was used as a port and the ruins of the old jetty are still present. Swimming is relatively safe in the sandy central portion of the beach and it is a popular spot for both launching boats and for shore-based fishing off the adjacent rock reefs.

Myponga Reservoir Lookout


The Myponga Reservoir Lookout provides sweeping views of the reservoir and surrounding pine forest. Construction of the reservoir began in 1957 and it was completed in 1962. The concrete arch dam wall is 49 metres high and 226 long. The reservoir is 35 metres deep and holds 26,800 mega litres. When full the water spread covers 280 hectares.

The reservoir supplies water to the southern metropolitan area and the south coast. Unlike other reservoirs Myponga does not receive any water from the River Murray but instead operates from water collected in the natural catchment. Below the reservoir the Myponga River makes its way through the valleys flowing into Gulf St Vincent at Myponga Beach. The Myponga Reservoir Treatment Plant was built in 1993 and currently serves approximately 50,000 people across an area that extends from McLaren Vale to Victor Harbor.

Dogs permitted on a leash. Contact the Yankalilla Visitor Information Centre for more details.
