Silver Sands: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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 at the top of the Fleurieu Peninsula, on the coast of Gulf St Vincent, has a sandy white beach curving along the coast beneath yellow cliffs. Pigeons live in the pock-marked cliff face.

Peeking over the edge of the cliff top is the Star of Greece restaurant , which was named for an early shipwreck off of this treacherous piece of coast. 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.

Adelaide Biplanes


Based at the vintage and charming Aldinga Airfield, Adelaide Biplanes is all about delivering some of the most awesome flying experiences it is possible to imagine.

From the joy and sheer romance of a big, classic, open cockpit Waco biplane flight along the stunning McLaren Vale wine region's coastline, the rumble of the big radial engine.

To an extreme open cockpit Great Lakes biplane aerobatic trip aloft that offers a totally unique, adrenalin-pumping experience, that literally puts all of your senses on overload.

To the ultimate buzz of actually learning to fly at the most motivating, challengingly-fun, inspiringly easy going and singularly safe Flying School.

Relax and soak up the nostalgia of the 1940's biplanes and flight training, whilst enjoying a gourmet bacon and egg sandwich and coffee. Homemade cake and cookies straight from the Kitchen tempt you to linger on the decking.

At Adelaide Biplanes, we have a passion for pretty much everything there is to do with aeroplanes.

Simply put, that's what we are all about.

We look forward to welcoming you here soon. It really is ....

Awesome.

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.
