See Stingrays at Point Turton in South Australia

During their stay at Point Turton Caravan Park, @_katventures visited these curious, giant creatures nightly.

Yorke Peninsula is such an amazing place to see creatures on land and in the sea. You can spot these majestic creatures at the Point Turton Jetty.

But make sure not to panic if you see them swimming in the water around you. There are many misconceptions about the dangers of stingrays, however they are not aggressive animals. They are curious and playful and if they feel threatened they will swim away instinctively. 

However, it is important to respect their space. Take photos and watch them from a distance. Never threaten a stingray and stay away from the barb on the end of their tail. Also make sure not to step on them when they are resting in shallow warm water. 

How to be cautious around stingrays:

The best thing to do is keep your eyes peeled. You can also do the “stingray shuffle” which is when you slide your feet slowly through the sand to encourage any rays to move away.

What to do if you get stung:

If a stingray does accidentally sting you with its barb, make sure to pour hot water over the sting to ease the pain and follow first aid advice.
