    Pocket Guide: Limestone Coast - Fleurieu Peninsula

    The Fleurieu Peninsula is often called "Adelaide’s playground", and it’s waiting for you to come and play! A wine region with mouth-watering Shiraz and over 75 cellar doors, it’s perfect for a good time. It also has natural beauty and wonderful wildlife, from rolling hills to rugged beaches, penguins to kangaroos. Ocean and adventure activities like surfing and skydiving are awesome if you’re looking for some excitement, but you’ll have no shortage of opportunities to relax, too. Book your Fleurieu Peninsula hotel with us and experience the delights of spots like McLaren Vale, Goolwa and Hindmarsh Valley.


    The Fleurieu Peninsula is 45 minutes south of SA’s capital city Adelaide. It’s the traditional home of the Kaurna, Peramangk and Ngarrindjeri people. In 1802, Matthew Flinders and French explorer Nicholas Baudin mapped the region and named it after the explorer Charles Pierre Claret, comte de Fleurieu. In 1836, Colonel William Light landed in Rapid Bay and decided Adelaide’s plains were the best spot for a South Australian settlement.

    Things to do

    With so many wineries, you could spend your holiday on the Fleurieu Peninsula happily hopping from one wine-tasting to another. Some wineries are in beautiful old buildings, some come with lake views and some also have gourmet restaurants or live music.

    There are over 250 km of beaches. Middleton Beach is one for the surfers, while Waitpinga beach is a great spot to admire the headland and even do some fishing. To have a whale of a time, do some whale-watching at Encounter Bay during May to October, where you can perch on the coastal cliffs to catch a glimpse of these marvelous mammals.

    Love wildlife? Visit 4500 hectare Deep Hill Conservation Park, to embark on a hiking trek and spot kangaroos and echidnas. Coorong National Park has long stretches of beach and salty lagoons and a wide variety of birdlife. Visit Granite Island, connected to Victor Harbor by causeway. It has a colony of about 150 little penguins, and you can watch them wander onto the beach at dusk after a day of fishing and make their way to their burrows.

    And if you feel like getting your heart rate up, try out some adventure activities: skydive, jet ski, take a scenic helicopter flight, kayak the caves of Rapid Bay or abseil down a beachfront cliff.

    Shopping and dining

    Classy restaurants show off the best of the Fleurieu Peninsula’s local produce, sometimes in wonderful locations like right by the seaside or in a winery with vineyard views. You can also snack on fresh seafood or wood-fired pizzas. Towns like McLaren Vale and Goolwa have boutique shopping that includes fashion, antiques and gifts.

    Getting here

    Book a flight to Adelaide with us to go with your Fleurieu Peninsula accommodation. There are hire car companies around or you can catch a train or coach to the Peninsula. It’s only a 45-minute drive from Adelaide to McLaren Vale, so you don’t have to go far to get to this exciting wine and leisure destination. Image of Victor Harbour, Fleurieu Peninsula, SA.

    Hotel Victor

    1 Albert Place, Victor Harbor - Map
    "Hotel overlooking the beach"
    Our room was ok, with a king size bed and ocean views meant a glimpse out of the side of the hotel. There was a tiny balcony but didn't bother to go out there as the table and chairs were in the doorway. We could hear the people in the next room talking. The bathroom is very badly designed, with the basin in the carpeted area and the toilet and shower behind a door. That wet area is so tiny that there is hardly any space between the toilet and the shower recess. Our other complaint is the exorbitant cost of breakfast for what we got. My husband couldn't even drink his coffee that we paid $3 for. We were, however, very happy with the roast buffet in the restaurant.
