    Progress Association President’s Report... What a fantastic holiday period we had here in Hardwicke Bay! As usual, the township was full to

    the brim of locals, shackies and holiday makers – great times!

    And those that were around for the heatwave saw us record our highest temperature ever at

    nearby Minlaton Airport! I recorded 48.5 C under my pergola that day. Anyway, it was great

    weather for our bottle and can fundraising – plenty of empties around after that hot spell!

    We are trying to add more content to the newsletter to ensure it remains informative and

    interesting. We have commenced a local history article, kindly written up by Christina and Graham

    Ball, who are both long term residents of the area and local amateur historians. Christina has

    actually published a few books about local history. So we hope you enjoy reading these each

    month.

    There was an excellent turn out at the hall for the Australia Day free sausage sizzle. Over 70 people

    attended to help celebrate the event. We will work to try and attract even more people next year.

    Our next main event is the Fishing Competition over the Easter long weekend. This will be the

    fourth year running and will once again have cash prizes for the fishing competition and a huge

    raffle. Many great prizes have already been sourced. It should be another fantastic event for

    Hardwicke Bay – let’s hope the weather is good.

    Thanks again to all the hard working committee members over this busy period. Without their

    dedication – our events just wouldn’t get off the ground.

    The Proposed Township of Hardwicke Bay—1877

    In 1877, Graeme’s, great-great grandfather, James Murdock, subdivided a small section of his farm and consequently

    advertised for sale the township, which he named “Hardwicke Bay”. The blocks were to be sold by auction on

    Tuesday, 13th November 1877 by Messrs. Pizey and Reed, at White’s Rooms, King William St, Adelaide. The sale was

    not a success, only four allotments were sold to Mr George Turner for £125.

    Although James Murdock’s vision of “marine residences” was well ahead of his time, no further allotments sold and

    Turner’s four blocks were never developed. Murdock repurchased the four blocks in 1893 for £5.

    To quote the South Australian Register, 16th

    November 1889, describing a journey to

    southern Yorke Peninsula “the travelers

    admired the beauties of Hardwicke Bay, on the

    eastern (sic) side of the Peninsula, which would

    be a most delightful seaside resort for the jaded

    citizens of Adelaide if it were more accessible”.

    In the ensuing years the locality had become

    known as Point Turton, the original designation

    of Hardwicke Bay for the township long since

    forgotten. Point Turton was declared a town in

    October 1984.

    Our town of Hardwicke Bay was officially

    declared as such four years later in 1988. The

    little collection of leasehold fishing shacks

    erected since the 1950’s was named Hardwicke

    Bay after the bay itself and by the 1980’s our

    town had also grown with the consequent

    subdivision of the adjoining farm land.

    Amazingly one of the original posters for the

    1877 sale of James Murdock’s “Hardwicke Bay”

    has survived and is held by the State Library of

    South Australia.

    TEAM O’BRIEN -

    REEF ENCOUNTERS

    FISHING CHARTER EXPEDITION

    On Monday, 21st January “Team O’Brien” (Roger, Stuart, Steph and I) set off to Pondalowie Bay for a day of deep sea fishing and fun. The charter left the bay at 7:30am and on our way out to the snapper spot we tried trawling for tuna, but to no avail. Upon anchoring we instantly started to pull in a mixture of nannygai, sweetlip, snapper, trevally, and other, it was a mixed bag. A fishing crew of 11, plus skipper Mark and deckhand Clint were kept very busy baiting, casting, reeling and tagging the fish. Each

    group had their own colour tags so we knew whose fish were whose at the end of the day. As the fish went off the bite we would move to another spot and they would start again, this happened through the day with about 5 moves.

    We were very lucky with the weather, a perfect day for it, although a couple of lads (who may have had a drink or 2 the night before) were not well. Stuart, Steph and I took quell 45 minutes before getting on the charter, and 4 hours later, even though we were ok, and we felt fine the entire day. Stuart landed the catch of the day with a large school shark which he was pretty pumped about. The charter was back in the bay at 4:30pm with cleaned fish and a lot of happy customers. It was such a fun and memorable day and we would highly recommend Reef Encounters Fishing Charter to anyone who loves fishing. You get a great day of fishing and you get to keep the catch, it’s a win / win. Any ladies thinking of doing the charter, yes go for it (there is a toilet onboard). Mark and Clint were so helpful and welcoming, we did not stop smiling all day.

    I would like to thank Hardwicke Bay Progress Fishing Competition and Reef Encounters Fishing Charters for the voucher I won last Easter. If you are interested in the charter please phone :

    Mark Wynbergen, Reef Encounters Fishing Charters 0407 609 988 www.reefencounters.com.au They also have accommodation available at Marion Bay if needed.

    Thank you once again for a very memorable and enjoyable day.

    Garth and Joan Matthews Are Leaving Us Garth and Joan live in Norwood and bought a shack on 1 Foreshore

    Road in Hardwicke Bay in 1971, in partnership with another person.

    The total cost was $4,800 so half share was $2,400. This was on

    Crown land so a cost of $50 per year was payable.

    They sold the shack in 1990 and moved up the street a little to their

    current residence. This was also on Crown land and in 1990 Garth

    and Joan bought the freehold title for $30,000. In the 70’s Warooka

    was the focal town and was used as the main town to shop at or

    have a drink at the pub.

    Garth and Joan love fishing and they had many contests with England vs Australia (Garth being English) but we believe

    that Australia (Joan) was the most frequent winner. Garth did protest (well he is a Pom) as he had to take the fish

    off Joan’s line as she would not do it. Their original boat was a 18ft Bondwood boat with a Blaxland inboard with a

    cruising speed of 7 knots.

    There where 7 pro fishermen in Hardwicke in the 70’s all using handlines. Boats would be launched at Turton then

    moored at Hardwicke Bay. However, there was a guy Don that would launch a boat for $2 and retrieve it for another

    $2.

    Garth joined the Progress Association in the 70’s to work on the “saving our shacks” project. Garth recalls that in the

    70’s every Easter and Christmas the shop owner at Warooka would come to Hardwicke daily with newspapers and

    basic needs. Garth and Joan say that the sale of their shack and leaving Hardwicke Bay is a nostalgic moment and sad

    but they wanted to work out their plans for the future while still being capable.

    Joan did mention that Garth said they would leave Hardwicke Bay when he turned 70. Garth will celebrate his 83rd

    Birthday this year so the target date was just missed. Both Joan and Garth say how they loved the scenery, the people

    and the lifestyle at Hardwicke Bay and one they will sadly miss. They also will miss the Monthly Dinners at the Hall.

    We all wish Garth and Joan all the very best of health and happiness for the future. You will be sadly missed. Please

    come back to visit us.
