In 1975, the southern end of ‘Maslins’ became Australia’s first nudist beach. Milang 77 kilometres from Adelaide map reference J5 In the late 19th century, Milang was the largest inland port in South Australia, providing a busy trade and produce hub for road transport from Melbourne. The paddle- steamers are long gone, leaving Milang as a peaceful refuge with a laid-back lifestyle that suits families, windsurfers, anglers or binocular-packing birdwatchers. Set on the western shore of Lake Alexandrina, Milang has many charming old buildings, including two restored railway carriages on the tracks, which house the very interesting heritage museum and a group of quirky heritage ‘workmen’s shacks’ on the foreshore. Moana 39 kilometres from Adelaide map reference E3 Norfolk Island pines dominate the foreshore of this popular beachside town, which is noted for its summer swimming, year-round fishing, snorkelling and coastal walks. Vehicles can also gain access to the beach during the summer months. Middleton 81 kilometres from Adelaide map reference G6 Middleton’s open beaches provide the sort of natural solitude that could turn anyone into a beachcomber. It’s the ‘middle town’ on the old railway line between Goolwa and Victor Harbor and known for its bakery, holiday houses, bed and breakfasts, beach fishing and a rocky point that creates a good surfing break. It’s a popular spot for sighting Southern Right whales in winter or for enjoying the Encounter Bikeway – a sealed coastal pathway that’s at its most spectacular between Middleton and Port Elliot. Mount Jagged 65 kilometres from Adelaide map reference F5 A rapidly expanding grape growing area within the Southern Fleurieu wine region, Mount Jagged is home to a couple of cellar doors open for tastings and sales, as well as a cheesewright. The area boasts picturesque views across the Mount Lofty Ranges to the coast en route to Victor Harbor.

SYSTEMC ERT IFICATIONHACCP Mount Compass 58 kilometres from Adelaide map reference F5 A popular service stop for those travelling to Victor Harbor, this is an authentic rural hub surrounded by rolling hills, meandering country roads and a bounty of local produce that range from blueberries and strawberries to cheese, pheasants and venison – much of which can be found on a trail through hamlets such as Nangkita, Tooperang, Yundi and Ashbourne. The local sense of humour shines through with Australia’s only dairy cow race, held each January, which is a fun way of celebrating the dairy heritage of the region.
