Stansbury is the next small coastal town encounted when heading south to the toe of Cape Yorke. Stansbury is a pretty town that also has a growing tourist industry. Recreational fishing and other water sports are popular at Stansbury.

The town was originally known as Oyster Bay, although it was officially proclaimed Stansbury in 1873 by Governor Anthony Musgrave, in honour of a friend. There is evidence heritage factors are important.

It is located 25 kilometres (16 mi) south of Minlaton and 22 kilometres (14 mi) east of Yorketown. It faces the Gulf St Vincent across Oyster Bay, where shellfish were originally harvested in the 19th century. The town has also been a port used in the export of wheat and barley to Adelaide.
