Venus Bay is located on the Eyre Peninsula and is a picturesque small seaside holiday town which sits on a narrow peninsula overlooking the Bay and its islands. Venus Bay is almost totally land-locked and offers excellent boat and jetty fishing all year round - the bay offers protection from the strong ocean currents. From the Jetty you might catch - tommy ruff, trevally, garfish and mullet etc. The boat ramp north of the jetty provides easy access to the water for boat fishermen who might also catch King George Whiting and flounder.  

The calm waters of Venus Bay are popular with holiday-makers to go water-skiing, swimming, canoeing or sailing. The town lookout is worth a visit with wonderful views of nearby cliffs and the booming surf that rolls in from the Great Australian Bight. Venus Bay has a range of facilities for visitors - accommodation, houseboat or boat hire, post office, licensed general store, fuel and gas, playground, public toilets etc. This is a very pretty little spot with beautiful blue water and well worth a stop during your travels around South Australia.
