The beauty of the Fleurieu Peninsula has been inspiring creative people for many generations. Local landscapes feature in the works of some of Australia’s most celebrated visual artists, including Hans Heysen, Dorrit Black, Gerry Wedd, Chris De Rosa, John Olsen, Horace Trennery and Kathleen Sauerbier.
From the strong and distinctive traditions of the Ngarrindjeri and Kaurna people, to the works of local sculptors, painters, glass workers, printmakers, and performers – a trip to the Fleurieu Peninsula would be incomplete without viewing some of the spectacular art and culture from across the region.
The Fleurieu Food, Drink & Arts Guide is a great way to uncover some of the region’s best galleries and studios.
Alternatively, book into a local indigenous experience or take a stroll down the main streets of Strathalbyn, Willunga, McLaren Vale, Normanville or Port Noarlunga to find art cooperatives, galleries, stained glass workshops and antique shops.
