Beach at Opossum Bay
|LGA(s)||City of Clarence|
Opossum Bay Post Office opened on 16 January 1942 and closed in 1980.
The origin of Opossum Bay's name is unclear.
Opossum Bay is nearly surrounded by water. The Gellibrand Point, Opossum Bay and South Arm Town area is connected to the rest of the South Arm Peninsula by a narrow isthmus. The proximity to the Derwent River and Ralphs Bay can result in Opossum Bay frequently being cooled by sea breezes in summer.
- Brian Ritchie - bass guitarist for the band Violent Femmes
