Summer Holiday Fun!

Things to do on the Fleurieu these Summer Holidays 2019

I can barely recall what it was like to have those endless Summer holidays that we had in school. You know the ones? You return to school and everyone is taller, has different hair and wardrobes and comes to show and tell with amazing stories of adventure from their holidays?

To create your own show and tells we have compiled a list of things you should check out while you are in the area:

New Years Eve
To bring in the New Year, head to Warland Reserve in Victor Harbor. If you are in Goolwa Head to the Wharf (remember to make sure your pets are secure, safe and have appropriate up to date ID as fireworks can cause animals to experience distress and escape).

 

1-hour alpaca tour
take an alpaca for a walk (yes that is correct, you can WALK an alpaca)
Contact Softfoot Alpacas and Eco Centre from $49 per person at https://www.softfoot.com.au/

Surfing lessons
No Summer holiday is complete without catching a few waves. If you have never tried to surf but always wanted to get in contact with Ocean Living Surf School https://olsurfschool.com.au whether it is just for yourself, or a family affair.
