Myponga provides visitors with the ultimate country town experience – here you’ll find a busy weekend craft and produce market, craft brewery the Smiling Samoyed, Valley of Yore, a popular café, and bakery.
In recent years, the pristine land surrounding the Myponga Reservoir has been opened to the public and transformed into an accessible walking, fishing, and kayaking location.
Visit the reservoir and you’ll find kangaroos and birdlife galore! Don’t have time to wander? Drive across the Myponga Reservoir wall to take it all in from above – there's a convenient picnic spot here to stop and admire the view.
While Myponga feels as if it’s in the middle of the countryside, in reality, Myponga Beach is just 15 minutes away. This quiet seaside cove is one of the Fleurieu’s best-kept secrets. Surrounded by picturesque coastal hills, it offers excellent swimming, diving, and rock and surf fishing.
