Located just 45 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Adelaide, the Fleurieu Peninsula provides a break away from the urban sprawl. Here, wine and wildlife are the name of the game, set amongst breath-taking scenery that characterises this part of the country.

When you’re not tucking into platters of local fare, or sampling some homemade tipple, you can get stuck into a range of water-based adventures that are offered along the coast. The shoreline is made up of sprawling sandy beaches, wild and wonderful cliff faces, and intimate sheltered coves that are perfect for catching some peace and quiet in, as well as trying your hand at fishing, surfing, scuba diving, and snorkelling amongst the colourful underwater world.

Further inland, the scenery is patterned with vineyards and ancient olive groves that fall away into the glistening ocean, historic towns that promise the charm of old Australia, and plenty of chances to spot whales frolicking off the coast.
