Fleurieu Peninsula

Sip world-class wines, hike through ancient forests, surf, swim and, in winter, spot Southern Right whales – you’re sure to have fun on the Fleurieu Peninsula.

With its stunning landscape of rolling hills, farmland, national parks and vineyards, fringed on two sides by pristine sandy beaches and rugged coastlines, the Fleurieu Peninsula is the place which offers the perfect blend of indulgence, culture and outdoor adventure.

Just 45 minutes from Adelaide, the Fleurieu Peninsula is a gateway for all kinds of year-round fun. Choose from world-class wineries, picturesque townships, wild surf beaches, national parks and untouched coastal scenery.

The region has something for everyone – whether you are looking for a romantic weekend escape, a fun-filled family holiday or the chance to reconnect with nature, it’s all right here on the Fleurieu.

Wine lovers have four distinct wine regions to explore, including McLaren Vale which is celebrated for its contemporary wine styles and welcoming cellar doors. Nearby Langhorne Creek, Currency Creek and Southern Fleurieu all offer superb wine and intimate cellar door experiences.

The region is home to a range of craft beer, gin, whisky and spirit makers – you’ll find them readily available at cellar doors, restaurants and pubs.

The Fleurieu Peninsula is also making a name for itself as one of Australia’s most diverse and progressive food regions. Drop into one of the many farmers markets to sample a superb range of fresh fruit and vegetables, artisan cheeses, venison, smoked meats, seafood, sourdough breads and other sensational regional produce.

Eating out is another delight. Visitors can choose from a wide array of cafés, vineyard restaurants or charming country pubs – or just put together your own delicious picnic feast.

For a perfect coastal escape, visit Victor Harbor. South Australia’s premier seaside town offers spectacular scenery, a horse-drawn tram and the SteamRanger Heritage Railway. Just a short drive west is the historic port of Goolwa – gateway to both the Murray Mouth and Coorong National Park, celebrated for its vast wetlands, abundant birdlife and rich Aboriginal cultural heritage.

Ride along the Encounter Bikeway from Goolwa to Victor Harbor, sail on Lake Alexandrina or explore the ex-HMAS Hobart underwater dive site. Meander through Mount Compass and Strathalbyn following produce, antique and art trails. Laze on the pristine white sand of Normanville beach or head to Deep Creek Conservation Park for panoramic coastal views across natural landscapes. Its scenery and abundant wildlife make it a popular destination. The walks are graded from easy or moderate through to hard and include some of the most spectacular parts of the Heysen Trail. There is so much to explore you may wish to stay a few nights. Southern Ocean Retreats offers a range of accommodation options at various locations in Deep Creek Conservation Park, and provide an ideal base from which to explore the Park’s many attractions.

Accommodation is plentiful and varied. Check into a cosy bed and breakfast, stay in a golf course resort or boutique hotel or camp out in one of the many national and conservation parks. You’ll be amazed by what the Fleurieu Peninsula has to offer.
