Fleurieu Peninsula

Second Valley, Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia, 5204


Visit the cellar doors, laze around the river and mess about in boats. Learn how to surf or watch whales and their calves play in the ocean.

The Fleurieu Peninsula has a real beach culture. Surfers jog down to the water each morning with boards under their arm. Families lay on the sand, eating fish and chips. You’ll enjoy the sun, food and wine in this little slice of heaven.

The Fleurieu Peninsula’s green hills are bounded by clifftops, beaches, coves and the winding Murray River. The river pans out and forms a beautiful, calm pool at Goolwa.

Sit on the wharf and see boats cruise under the Hindmarsh Bridge. Sail up to the Coorong and see pelicans tilt their heads to the side, watching as you pass their nests.

Get close to kangaroos in the conservation parks. Watch little penguins come ashore at Granite Island. Feel the sand between your toes and hunt for cockles. Take a charter trip and hook a fish. Cycle along the coast or stop by the wineries and find that special drop.

The Fleurieu Peninsula is a hive of activity in summer. You will love the laid-back lifestyle. There’s a different atmosphere in winter. See wild, thundering seas and whales slapping their tails in the water. Warm up beside a cellar door’s crackling fireplace. Talk to the winemaker as you try their wines.
