Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation on the Fleurieu Peninsula

Discover your very own private wilderness, less than an hour from Adelaide.
Find Fleurieu Peninsula treasures from your boutique accommodation

The Fleurieu Peninsula’s uncrowded beaches, rugged coastline and secret coves will make you feel like you’ve arrived in your own private wilderness – when in fact you’re just 45 minutes from Adelaide. This diverse landscape is dotted with lively seaside villages where you’re sure to find the perfect boutique accommodation for your next holiday.

Enjoy a romantic escape in Goolwa, an old port town at the mouth of the Murray River. Boutique accommodation in Goolwa spans everything from ocean-view apartments and renovated boathouses on the marina to historic homesteads that have been transformed into luxury hotels.

Soak up Southern Ocean vistas from a range of contemporary apartments in Victor Harbour, which happily cater for couples’ retreats or group getaways with family and friends. Or, choose unique accommodation in Port Elliot, such as a restored dairy filled with covetable artworks or a light-drenched villa just metres from the beach.

Whatever Fleurieu Peninsula accommodation you settle in, make sure to ask your hosts and locals for their inside knowledge.

You’ll want to make the most of Fleurieu Peninsula’s spectacular weather, so spend the morning swimming or paddling in the sea before following a nature trail or boarding the steam train to Port Elliot and Goolwa.

Further north, we love the relaxed beach culture of Port Willunga, where you can join the locals and drive right down on to the beach to park in front of the waves. Afterwards, wander up to the clifftop Star of Greece restaurant, where you can savour the laid-back Mediterranean ambience over platters of grilled haloumi and seafood.

To get back to nature, Deep Creek Conservation Park near Delamere protects one of South Australia’s most spectacular semi-wildernesses. The Heysen Trail passes through here and the views of the Southern Ocean are remarkable. Keep an eye out for penguins, pelicans, seals and dolphins. Or, try your hand at fishing Fleurieu’s beaches and rivers. After a day spent exploring this coastal region, dust off the sand and return to your luxury accommodation in the Fleurieu Peninsula to cook up your fresh catch.
