The Region of THE FLEURIEU PENINSULA - where the hinterland reaches the sea.
The Fleurieu Peninsula is 52 kilometres (32 miles) from Adelaide, the Capital city of South Australia, and covers an area of 2,873 square kilometres (1,760 sq miles) with a mild Mediterranean climate of cool wet winters and warm dry summers.
The history of the Fleurieu Peninsula goes back many thousands of years before European arrival and is documented in the rich oral traditions continuing with the Kaurna, Peramangk and Ngarrindjeri people. The traditional custodians continue to take resposibility for its well being.
Imagine a place with a picturesque coastline and hinterland, where you can hike through ancient forests; view Southern Right Whales; spot a multitude of wildlife in the wild; visit wildlife sanctuaries and Conservaton Parks; laze, swim or surf at pristine beaches; drive through picturesque country farmland and vineyards; enjoy fine dining and gourmet produce; sip world class wines and play a round of golf on championship courses with million dollar views. You can do all this and more on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
