Although increasingly popular as a holiday destination, Middleton's smooth, open beaches still provide the sort of natural solitude that could turn anyone into a beachcomber. It's the 'middle town' on the old railway line between Goolwa and Victor Harbor and now a thriving hamlet known for its bakery, holiday houses, bed & breakfasts, beach fishing and a rocky point that creates a good surfing break for Southern Ocean swells.

Middleton is a popular spot for enjoying the Encounter Bikeway – a shared, sealed coastal pathway that's at its most spectacular between Middleton and Port Elliot.
