A rugged and beautiful peninsula south of Adelaide. Superb coastline walking and the Mount Lofty Ranges for hill walking. This is dry, hot countryside, with classic Aussie wildlife to match: wallabies and kangaroos, snakes, and a wide variety of birds. The seemingly oppressed vegetation explodes with colour in spring - if the rain falls.

A lot to do within easy striking distance of Adelaide.

  • A stretch of the Heysen Trial from Cape Jarvis to Victor Harbour on the coast. Also Fleurieu to Barossa in the Mt Lofty Ranges and Mount Magnificent, Hindmarsh Tiers and Inman Valley.

  • Other stretches of the Heysen Trail would also make for day (or longer) walks.
