63 kilometres from Adelaide
A small community nestled in a picturesque valley at the intersection of Bull Creek and Finniss River, Ashbourne is famous for its fresh produce sold from roadside stalls and served in the refurbished Greenman Inn. 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 lengths of road on 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. Entry is free, and with three different bushwalking trails to choose from, this unique landscape appeals to both the casual walker and experienced hiker!
