Emu Bay

(5/5 based on 25+ reviews for 1 attraction)
The Emu Bay is located on the north coast of Kangaroo Island, South Australia, west of Kingscote, the island's main town. It is a small town of 97 allotments with an even mix of permanent and holiday homes. The town has no shops or mains water supply. Emu Bay is known as a popular swimming beach, and is one of few on Kangaroo Island where vehicles are permitted.A small jetty dates to 1918. Originally long, it allowed ketches such as Karatta to tie up to load cargoes, while a nearby fresh water well serviced horses which pulled wagons down to the bay. Until the 1930s, grain, stock and merchandise were taken to and from Kangaroo Island from this jetty.Emu Bay is also the location of an unusual geological formation named Emu Bay shale.
