Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island is a pristine wilderness - a place that has offered protection to substantial populations of native Australian animals and a place of beauty. It is 18 km off the coast of South Australia and has a population of just 4,400 people.


Fleurieu Peninsula

The Fleurieu Peninsula (click on this link to view a map of the peninsula), is a picturesque peninsula located south of Adelaide in South Australia, Australia.  It was named after the French explorer and hydrographer Charles Pierre Claret de Fleurieu by the French explorer Nicolas Baudin as he mapped the south coast of Australia in 1802.  Towns of interest in the area include the scenic Victor Harbor, the heritage town of Willunga, Mount Compass, Goolwa, Yankalilla, Rapid Bay and the wine region of McLaren Vale. There is fine surfing at Waitpinga and Browns Beach on Kangaroo Island.  A ferry travels between Cape Jervis, at the tip of the peninsula, and Kangaroo Island.

This adventure playground is famed for its coastal thrills, secluded beaches, adventurous tours and unspoilt wildlife. It's a paradise for divers and snorkellers, with dramatic shipwrecks and stunning marine life, including the famed Leafy Seadragon.  And it's alive with vibrant and creative festivals, events and art.

Fleurieu Peninsula is home to some of the best produce and vineyards in the country. If you know about wine, you've certainly heard of names such as McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, and Currency Creek. You can find them all here.
