Kangaroos at Deep Creek, Fleurieu Peninsula

The Fleurieu Peninsula is an adventure playground famous for its coastal thrills, secluded beaches, adventurous tours and unspoilt wildlife.

The Fleurieu Peninsula is a peninsula located south of Adelaide in South Australia. Just 45 minutes from the centre of Adelaide, the Fleurieu Peninsula (pronounced floo-ree-oh) offers a tapestry of experiences, patterned with vineyards, olive groves and almond plantations. The Mount Lofty Ranges begin at the southernmost point of the Fleurieu Peninsula (Cape Jervis) stretching northwards for over 300 kilometres to creating the Adelaide Hills, bordering the Barossa Valley and cross the Flinders Ranges to the north. The region is made up of rolling green hills, dairy pastures, orchards, farms and vineyards all bounded by picturesque beaches and rugged coastlines.

Running down to the sea, it is Adelaide's weekend playground, and an engaging mix of surf beaches, historic towns and whales cavorting offshore. The Fleurieu Peninsula offers a wide selection of things to do all year round. There are over 100 cellar doors featuring wines from 4 distinct wine regions.

The Fleurieu Peninsula's heritage goes back many thousands of years to the people of the Kaurna, Peramangk and Ngarrindjeri Aboriginal groups.
