The south coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula is always a popular spot for surfers, from novices to the most experienced, there are beaches to suit all abilities in this region around 80 kilometres from Adelaide. Middleton, Goolwa, Waitpinga and Parsons are magnets depending on the daily conditions that suit the different beaches. The beauty of this part of the coast are the long straight beaches and mostly easy access points to surf spots and lots of car parking.
It’s hard to imagine a more perfect setting for a relaxed restaurant specialising in dishes containing Goolwa cockles, than behind the sand dunes overlooking the beach where they can be harvested. The Kuti shack is at the end of Beach Road at Goolwa Beach and sits between the new Goolwa Surf Life Saving Club and the popular surf beach. If you’re planning a holiday to the Fleurieu Peninsula region of South Australia, you will want to add the Kuti Shack to your list of places to try if you want the best views and seafood experiences on the coast.
I stumbled across this event on Goolwa Beach by accident earlier this month and had no idea what it was all about. So what is Send n Slash? Well this is only the third time this event has occurred here in South Australia and it’s a freeride jetski competition, put on by the people involved in the sport to showcase the skills of riders in this wild activity. It was held over two days with teams of riders from around Australia converging on Goolwa Beach for the competition.
Winter in Southern and Eastern Australia usually means whale migration time along the coasts. They are starting to be seen with a little more frequency on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, just in time for the winter school holidays.
It’s Christmas Eve and if you are like our family, Christmas is already in full swing with extended family members to visit, food to eat, drinks to celebrate with and a year of ups and downs to look back on. The presents are all bought and wrapped, food waiting to go when it’s needed and chores done to prepare for the holiday season.
The original Storm Boy movie was made in 1976 and the remake is due for release in January of 2019. The story is set in the 1950s and luckily history has been preserved (or in some cases a little re-created) in the towns that were used as settings for the movie. The natural environment of the Coorong and the beaches and wildlife will no doubt speak for themselves.
