The township of Stenhouse Bay is at the western tip of Yorke Peninsula in South Australia. It was named after Andrew Stenhouse, who in the 1920s had a business called the Permascite Manufacturing Company. He helped start the gypsum industry in this location.

The Waratah Gypsum Company had works here for the quarrying and exporting of rock gypsum. Gypsum after being washed, roasted and ground, was used in the manufacturing of plaster of paris and cement. The quality of the gypsum in this area was exceptionally high class and most of Australia's needs were supplied from here.

The Waratah Gypsum Company closed its works and the town was sold to the Innes National Park.

Innes Park Trading Post and Rhino's Tavern

After almost 60 years, the shop at Stenhouse Bay, trading in recent years as Innes Park Trading Post and Rhino’s Tavern, was demolished before Christmas in 2013.

The iconic trading post and tavern was closed and fenced off just before the peak Christmas period. Park visitors must now travel 5km out of the park back to Marion Bay for fuel, camping goods and a restaurant meal. The closure meant the department lost between $30,000 and $50,000 in annual lease revenue.
