There is something for everyone on the Fleurieu Peninsula. Bucketlist activities like skydiving to relaxing fishing - you can do it all!
Surfing, sailing, kite-surfing, jet-skiing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, wind-surfing, snorkelling, scuba diving – if there is a sport on or in the water, you're bound to find it in a region surrounded by the ocean and criss- crossed by waterways.
In the Air
Scenic joy flights provide the ultimate buzz from the cockpit of a historic plane. Or feel the rush of wind on your face in a microlight aircraft – similar to a motorised hang glider. Why not take a scenic flight over the Fleurieu Peninsula from the seat of a helicopter.
Ride along the pristine coastline and follow the Encounter Bikeway which links the heritage towns of Goolwa, Port Elliot and Middleton with Victor Harbor. The total disctance is 31 kms but you can choose the ride shorter distances between towns.
The Coast to Vines Rail Trail is another spectacular bike track that winds along the historic former railway corridor between Marino Rocks and Willunga. Take in the spectacular vineyard vistas as you travel through the renowned McLaren Vale wine region along the way.
Cruising and Sailing
Take a guided boat cruise of the wild internationally recognised waters of the Coorong National Park or sail the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula coastline aboard a luxury ketch. If you're up for adventure, explore inaccessible areas of the coastline in an inflatable boat and, if you're lucky, beautiful seabirds, dolphins, seals and whales may all come out to play.
Declare war on your mates and pelt them with paintballs in a bushland setting. Getting out in nature and getting dirty.
The Fleurieu Peninsula is an angler's paradise, offering beach, riverbank and estuary fishing from rocks, jetties and sand. With so many great fishing spots to choose from, you should come home with a tale or two about the fish you caught, rather than a story about the one that got away.
If you own a boat there are a number of towns that offer launching facilities or for beginners, let one of the many fishing charter companies show you some of the best spots to drop a line.
Fishing is very popular within Encounter Marine Park – try your luck at the Murray Mouth, Waitpinga Beach and off Wirrina. Remember, you can fish in marine parks, just not in the sanctuary zones. To find out where you can fish, visit Marine Parks SA or book a fishing charter!
