Fleurieu Peninsula

The Fleurieu Peninsula is a coastal haven in South Australia.

It is located on the traditional lands of the Ngarrindjeri, Kaurna and Peramangk people.

One of its star attractions is the charming town of Victor Harbor, where you can embrace a delightful blend of seaside vibes and old-world charm. Hop on the horse-drawn tram to Granite Island and soak up the ocean views.

But that’s just the start – if you’re a wine lover, the Fleurieu Peninsula has a real treat in store for you.

Just a stone’s throw away is the renowned McLaren Vale wine region, where you can take your taste buds on a journey through a world of exceptional wines. Then move on to the Langhorne Creek wine region too.

This coastal paradise offers the best of both worlds – coastal beauty and a wine-tasting extravaganza.

So, if you’re seeking an escape that combines scenic coastlines and fine wines, the Fleurieu Peninsula is where it’s at.
