The area that encompasses McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast offers an incredible opportunity to discover an extraordinary part of South Australia.

As one of Adelaide’s most accessible regions, McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast is only 40 minutes from the city and enchants visitors with its rolling vineyard vistas, stunning beaches, and charming villages.

Be tempted by the incredibly diverse array of tastes and flavours inspired by the seasonal local produce, featured on the menus of cafés, restaurants, pubs, wineries, providores, specialty stores, and discovered at the source via weekend produce markets.

Pair this with some of Australia’s most unique wines grown from vines, with some dating back more than 100 years as part of the internationally renowned McLaren Vale Wine Region. With more than 80 cellar doors, visitors can enjoy wine tastings through to fully immersive winery experiences.

Not to be outdone, microbreweries, distilleries, and coffee roasters are popping up around the region tempting visitors with an alternative tipple.

The Fleurieu Coast has long been a favourite of beach goers from all over South Australia. Sparkling blue pristine waters together with golden sands sets the scene for surfing, swimming, fishing, beach cricket, BBQs, long beach walks, exploring the reefs below the water, or the rock pools above.  No matter the season, there’s a beach perfect for what you have in mind.

And for those who love the village life, McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast villages don’t disappoint with each steeped in history and brimming with stories, just waiting to be told by the friendly and welcoming locals. Coastal villages like Aldinga, Christies Beach, and Port Noarlunga, or their inland cousins of Reynella, McLaren Vale, Old Noarlunga, Clarendon, and Willunga all await to intrigue visitors with the lure of heritage charm and country hospitality.

Meanwhile, art and culture enthusiasts are spoilt for choice, with an abundance of galleries and shops to peruse. Nature lovers can walk or ride the region’s many trails, canoe the creeks, or just explore the beautiful Onkaparinga River National Park. Adventure seekers can take to the skies in a biplane or helicopter or come back down to earth with parachuting and abseiling activities.

Whatever you’re in to, we can’t wait to welcome you to the McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast.
