Winter Whale Watching
The Southern Right whale has been coming up from Antarctic waters
to Encounter Bay to give birth and nestle their young since time
immemorial and with whaling ceasing at the beginning of last century,
their numbers are increasing each year. They can be seen from the
cliff tops between Middleton, Port Elliot, Victor Harbor and the
Bluff between June and September each year. They are often only 100
metres from the shore! Call the Whale Information Network on 1 900
931 223 for specific details of the latest sightings. Whale watching
cruises depart from Granite Island during the winter months with
bookings essential to (08) 8552 7555.
Fleurieu Peninsula Wineries
The wineries of Langhorne Creek, Currency Creek and McLaren Vale
are less than a 30 minute drive, and we have negotiated Discount
Vouchers on a great range of Fox Creek Wines, at Malpas Road, Willunga. Vouchers
are included with bookings.
The closest (a 5 minute drive) are at Currency Creek where Ballast
Stone and Currency Creek wineries offer cellar door tastings and
sales. At Langhorne Creek, 3 cellar doors offer a selection of wines
and at Bremerton, an opportunity to buy a good selection of local
specialty produce. At McLaren Vale, 54 cellar doors provides the
opportunity to meet your maker, to learn of the winemaking
processes, to taste and buy. Our favourite local wines are the Currency
Creek 2001 Shiraz and the 2000 Lake Breeze Bernoota. McLaren Vale
also has olive and almond retailers, great opportunities to buy fresh,
seasonal local produce at the Willunga Farmers Market that operates
every Saturday morning from 9am to 1pm and many, many fine restaurants.
