Activities for the family
Beyond top drops, the Fleurieu Peninsula boasts plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy.
Amazing play spaces can be found at Gemtree Wines, Jubilee Park at Port Noarlunga, Langhorne Creek Playground, and the Nature Playspace at Bristow Smith Reserve.
For something a little different we recommend swimming with tuna! At Oceanic Victor families can get up close and personal to incredible Southern Bluefin Tuna (one of the fastest fish in the sea!).
Exploring Goolwa? The Cockle Train is a must do!
Visiting Victor Harbor? Take the kids to Granite Island! We recommend checking out Guided Penguin Tours.
For an exercise filled day, try Hallett Cove Conservation Park, Heysen Trail, Coast to Wines Rail Trail, Kuitpo Forest, and Myponga Reservoir Trail just to name a few.
And of course, we can’t cover the Fleurieu Peninsula without mentioning their amazing beaches! Whether you’re after diving spots, surfing, 4WDing tracks or simply just after a relaxing day out, take the family to beaches such Second Valley, Rapid Bay, Horseshoe Bay, Port Noarlunga South, Blowhole Beach and more!
