55 aldinga, aldinga beach and ashbourne | fleurieupeninsula.com.au Aldinga 44 kilometres from Adelaide map reference E4 Aldinga, or Ngaltingga in the Indigenous Kaurna language, is a historic village a few minutes east of Aldinga Beach, with shopping, cafés, restaurants and services for locals and visitors, all centred around its busy and popular hotel. In the early 1840s, Aldinga was a busy farming centre with two flour mills and six hotels, and this sense of history isn’t far away. Aldinga Beach 46 kilometres from Adelaide map reference E4 This is one of the few beaches in Australia where cars are permitted to drive on sections of the broad sand, making access to this safe swimming and impressive surf beach especially easy. Aldinga Beach is also a top spot for scuba diving and snorkelling, with the beach overlooking a unique aquatic reserve established to protect a rare reef formation. An underwater trail includes a sheer drop-off or underwater cliff, and unlike other dives in South Australia you can swim among rock pinnacles extending from the sea floor to just below the surface. A boat ramp provides easy access. Ashbourne 63 kilometres from Adelaide map reference H4 A small community nestled in a lovely valley at the intersection of Bull Creek and Finniss River, Ashbourne is famous for the fresh produce that can often be bought from roadside stalls. Take the road from Strathalbyn to Ashbourne and marvel at this winding avenue of grand old red gums – it’s one of the most scenic strips of road in the Fleurieu Peninsula. Cox Scrub Conservation Park, edged by Finniss River, contains many native animals, such as the Southern Brown bandicoot, birds and abundant wildflowers and orchids in spring.
