Clayton Bay has some of the best kayaking and canoeing on the Murray We’re not talking about rapids, instead imagine the peace and serenity as you silently glide and discover the backwaters, creeks and lagoons on one of the many dedicated kayak and canoe trails along the Murray River. There is so much of the river to explore with its bio-diversity and abundant riverbanks that sustain so much life.
The Clayton Bay boat ramp and it’s jetty has good access for all types of water sports. Take a stroll on our walking trails around Clayton Bay and experience fantastic views to the Coorong and Goolwa.
The town of Clayton Bay hugs a small, shallow bay dotted by reedy islands. More experienced boat owners and fishermen head for the open waters of Lake Alexandrina, just minutes away. Clayton Bay is perched across the river from the north-east tip of Hindmarsh Island on the Murray River, Lake Alexandrina, the Coorong Waterway and the myriad of protected creeks and channels which surround the islands of the Mundoo Hindmarsh Island system. It’s home to the Clayton Bay Classic Picnic – an annual casual gathering for those interested in classic motorcars, sailing boats, aeroplanes, model trains, motorcycles and other vehicles. People are invited to bring a picnic to Clayton Bay for a day of show and tell on the foreshore.
Short walk to the lake and easy to find. Enough room for 2 families to sleep. Large verandah out the back that overlooks the lake and our dogs enjoyed the weekend away as well. Definitely stay again
Wonderful time relaxing on your deck watching yachts and pelicans go by, very peaceful; air conditioners were a God sends! Hub to the wineries at Langhorne Creek and shopping at Goolwa.
Lovely quiet location, close to major towns, attractions and wineries.
