Adventure Throughout The Fleurieu
Posted: 11 April 2017 / Prepared by: Dylan Beach
Fleurieu favorite five
We’re only a few days away from a well-deserved Easter Long weekend break. The weather is looking ideal throughout our little slice of South Australia, so what more of excuses do you need to pack up the car with a few friends and explore what the Fleurieu Peninsula has to offer.
Leading into this weekend we’d like to share with you a few of our favourite adventurous activities to get you out and about.
1. Waitpinga Quad Bike Tours
Welcome to Kev and Mary’s slice of nature, with a bit an adventurous twist. Get the fresh air through the lungs and make the most of a guided quadbike farm tour with a qualified tour guide through 400 acres of beautiful farming country. Be surrounded with views of the ocean, local farm animals and possible sightings of native animals. Ride the provided quadbikes through grassy hills and plains and creek crossings.

2. Learn to Surf
Did you know that autumn is often the best season for surf in South Australia? Well if you missed the opportunity to get down to Middleton or Moana to tick ‘learn to surf’ off your bucket list over summer, it is your time to shine. There is no need to pack the board or the wetsuit, just make sure you pack the adventurous spirit and give one of the Fleurieu’s surfing schools a go. Some of our recommendations include South Coast Surf Academy and Surf and Sun who will provide your board, wetsuit and will make sure your surfing in no time!

5. Hike your way through the Fleurieu’s natural beauty
Whilst the sun is shining before the winter blues, pop on your hiking boots and pack your daypack to explore one of our region’s stunning National Parks. The Heysen Trail winds it’s way along the Southern Coast of the Fleurieu into the Deep Creek and Waitpinga State Parks, and is only one of the incredible walking trails within the Fleurieu that will allow you to explore off the beaten track, and into to some amazing scenery.
