Emu Bay is a fast growing town on the hill above the shores of
Emu Bay. The settlement consists of an increasing group of new
and beautiful houses and a caravan park with kiosk, which is open
in Summer and in other holiday times.
It is a quiet family holiday getaway on the North Coast of the
Island. Scenically splendid - Penguins come ashore and can be
heard in the low coastal scrub bush near the beach.
At the North-eastern end of the beach fossils can be seen in the
rocks. It is possible to drive the length of the beach at low
tide and this enables easy access to view the fossils.
The locals boast that the fishing from the jetty is the best in
Australia and it offers fairly safe anchorage to pleasure craft
and yachts, although some have been washed up on to the rocks
and care should be taken to observe wind and weather conditions
before choosing to anchor here.
