Exhilarating Port Elliot . . and more !

Definitely my favourite part of South Australia is the Fleurieu Peninsula, south of Adelaide.  Above is the breathtaking bay at Port Elliot, which is popular with both surfers and fishermen. 
  
If you're looking for a totally refreshing break from the hassles and busyness of life, you need look no further - about 1+1/4 hrs' drive from the city, on your way to the seashore you'll travel through such calming surroundings as those above and below; lush green vegetation, deep ravines, magnificent gum trees and, if you listen carefully, you're likely to hear the enchanting "conversation" of Kookaburras!

The Fleurieu is one of my favourite places in SA. I lived in Victor Harbor.

The sound of the kookaburra is quite unique! I shall be glad to hear it again in July. My grandchildren always sang :" kookaburra sits in an old gumtree..."
