The South Australia region
The Southern Fleurieu has a wealth of wildlife and much of it is in and around the sea. The coastal waters from Victor Harbor to Goolwa are a marine paradise and home to several marine species that are unique in Australia, such as the Leafy Seadragon.
Port Elliot itself is a model seaside village, renowned for its cafes, antique and gift shops along The Strand, its wide choice of accommodation – where the famous local bakery regularly draws queues.
Head for the Cockle Train to Goolwa or Victor Harbor, follow the Port Elliot Maritime Heritage Trail on the foreshore of Horseshoe Bay or explore vantage points such as Freeman Nob and the cliff-top walking path for stunning views of the Encounter coast.
The Summer House is situated in a superb location; central to all Port Elliot has to offer. Originally settled as trading port to transport goods to the River Port of Goolwa, after a spate of shipwrecks, Port Elliot evolved into a tourist town and has continued to delight the modern traveler.
Everything from Horseshoe Bay and the stunningly located Flying Fish, through to The Strand and its eclectic shops and hotels, are just a short stroll from home. Port Elliot is a town rich in history and community spirit and nearby surf beaches that are revered by surfers young…and not so young.
Port Elliot is a fabulous town to see on foot and we have included some themed walks such as the “Saturday Morning Produce Walk”, the “Winter Whale Walk” and for the more adventurous the “Crowsnest Road Lookout Leg Burner” to get you moving.
You'll also find local eateries, ranging from Port Elliot Bakery's famous pasties to fine dining.
Oh, and don't forget to bring a bike. There's a fantastic bike trail between Goolwa and Victor Harbor that takes in the stunning coastline and all that these culturally differing towns have to offer. Port Elliot is right in the middle and so you don't have to work too hard to end up somewhere amazing.
