July 5, 2017

Do you wish that you were sitting on the side of a boat rather than your office chair? If you’re itching to take in some vitamin D in the most natural way possible, visiting the Fleurieu Peninsula just south of Adelaide might be the day trip you need.

With countless activities to do with your loved ones or by yourself, you can guarantee that this trip will be full to the brim with good times and great memories. If you do decide to take a day trip to the Fleurieu Peninsula, just 45 minutes south of the city of Adelaide and very accessible for a short trip, here are some of best things to do to take full advantage of your time.

Water Sports

Since the location is right on the coast, this is a perfect spot for getting out there on the water. If you would rather sit on the side of the boat and tip your toes in the water, the Fleurieu Peninsula lets you sail the open waters – it’s fantastic to feel the breeze as you take in the views. And if you are wanting to get out and test your limits, there is surfing, jet-skiing, kayaking and windsurfing for you to enjoy.

Family Fun

If you plan on having the kids join you for the weekend, don’t fret; the Peninsula has a great amount of activities that are fun for the whole family. Along with water sports that everyone can get involved in, if there are animal lovers with you, Narnu Farm is one of the best places to get up close with the animals, whether they are eating out of your hand or giving you a ride around the award-winning farm located on Hindmarsh Island.

Thrill-seekers will also love the adventure park that is located right in the Victor Harbour. No matter your little ones’ ages, there are rides to entertain everyone.


There may be some of you who just want some peace and quiet for a day or two and your favourite way to chill out is golfing. If so, you’re in luck; The Fleurieu Peninsula has multiple public golf courses that offer challenges as well as relaxation, and all with stunning views.

With over 9 golf courses to choose from, it is easy to get pleasantly lost in the 18 holes for the weekend. No matter if you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, there is a golf course for you.
