The Fleurieu Peninsula’s close proximity to Adelaide makes it an accessible destination for day-trippers and holiday makers alike.

Visitors can expect nature, adventure, arts and culture, food, wine and a chance encounter with the Fleurieu’s local characters.

Cafés, restaurants, iconic pubs, legendary bakeries, and takeaways provide plenty of dining options. Local produce includes award-winning dairies, artisan butchers, providores, and specialist suppliers of olives, honey, seafood, fruit & vegetables, chocolates and sweets, jams, pickles and preserves, smallgoods, and much more.

Accommodation options are aplenty, as are attractions and activities. Think walking, hiking, cycling, golf, camping in and exploring national parks, horse riding, and an ‘energy expending’ collection of parks and playgrounds to keep the kids amused for hours on end.

There are also many visitor experiences dotted throughout the peninsula. Camel rides, steam train rides, horse-drawn trams, whale watching, wildlife parks, fishing charters, Coorong cruising, and skydiving are just a fraction of what’s on offer.

Those looking for more to explore will come across little boutiques, op shops, handicraft, curios and bric-a-brac shops, bookstores, galleries, studios, plus food and artisan markets.

And then there’s the spectacular beaches, the Fleurieu Peninsula is home to some of the best in the state. Pack your towel and bathers, togs or swimmers (yes, all states are welcome) for safe swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, paddle boarding, surfing, fishing, canoeing and kayaking, fossicking and foraging, and legendary games of beach cricket.
