63 kilometres from Adelaide

A small community nestled in a lovely valley at the intersection of Bull Creek and Finniss River, Ashbourne is famous for the fresh produce that can often be bought from roadside stalls. Take the road from Strathalbyn to Ashbourne and marvel at this winding avenue of grand old red gums – it's one of the most scenic strips of road in the Fleurieu Peninsula.

Ashbourne sits just north of Cox Scrub Conservation Park, edged by Finniss River. The park contains many native animals such as the Southern Brown bandicoot and abundant wildflowers and orchids in spring.
