Wool Bay

Wool Bay is situated on the Yorke Peninsula coast between Stansbury and Coobowie. The town was established in 1876 with the name Pickering but by 1940 the name had been changed to Wool Bay. In 1882 a jetty was built to take advantage of the safe anchorage with deep water close inshore. Wide enough to roll wool bales out to the the ships, the locals came to know the jetty as Wool Bay jetty, hence the official name change years later.
