Fleurieu Peninsula

Spend some time in nature’s playground. A short drive from Adelaide you’ll find rolling hills, dairy pastures, orchards, farms and vineyards, all bounded by picturesque beaches and rugged coastline. Sip world-class wines, hike through ancient forests, surf, swim, and spot Southern Right whales in winter all in this pristine coastal playground. McLaren Vale marks the beginning of the Fleurieu Peninsula and is less than an hour’s drive from Adelaide. The Fleurieu Peninsula is made up of 45 towns, many located on the coast, which sparks the Peninsula’s beach culture. The main industries are tourism, viticulture, dairy and cattle farming, cropping such as barley, wheat and oats, and produce including vegetables, berries and olives. It’s home to South Australia’s most popular seaside town, Victor Harbor, which has its own horse-drawn tram to nearby Granite Island, and the historic Cockle Train that runs along the coast to Goolwa.

More about the Fleurieu Peninsula

South Australian Tourism Commission

Ian Routledge

The first McLaren Vale vines were planted by John Reynell in 1838, two years after the proclamation of the colony of South Australia. The Fleurieu Peninsula is home to some of the best wines and wine regions in the world, and boasts more than 90 cellar doors. McLaren Vale, famous for its Shiraz, is a world-class wine region found in the Fleurieu Peninsula, joined by Langhorne Creek, Currency Creek and the Southern Fleurieu. Whales can be reliably seen on the Peninsula from July to August, with the giants of the deep often sighted playing in the waters off Port Elliot, Middleton and Victor Harbor as they make their way back to Antarctica. Diving adventures are available through shipwrecks off the coast of the Peninsula, such as the HMAS Hobart off Rapid Bay or the Star of Greece, which sank in 1888. There are also reefs off Port Noarlunga, Aldinga, Second Valley and Victor Harbor. Some of South Australia’s best surf beaches are located on the Fleurieu Peninsula, including Middleton, Waitpinga and Parsons Beaches.
