Local Activities

Beach Blanket Babylon is a short walk to Boomer Beach and the scenic coastal walking track which winds its way around the coast to popular Horseshoe bay. For the beach lovers and surfers there is a hot/cold outdoor shower to rinse the sand when you get home.

Port Elliot is a small seaside holiday destination for both local and international tourists and is an ideal spot to watch the Southern Right Whales cavorting in the bay. This is a site not to be missed.

Also a short walk to the historic township of Port Elliot and its cafe's and restaurants. A favourite of ours is the magnigicent Hotel Elliot a beautiful place for a relaxing wine and offers lovely restaurant quality food. There are also numerous breakfast cafe's, if you want to grab a coffee and read the paper. The Port Elliot Bakery is an institution, with summer line ups out the door & down the street...

Horseshoe Bay is a lovely protected beach for the kids to swim and play on the playground, and is home to The Flying Fish, a wonderful cafe selling ocean front fish and chips, icecreams & drinks - make sure to pop in, its a popular place!

You are a short drive to a number of local towns including Victor Harbor, Middleton surf beaches and Goolwa.

Port Elliot offers plenty to do, but make sure to leave plenty of time to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. You can cook up a storm in the kitchen its not far to shops where you can buy gourmet foods, organic produce and fresh meats.

There are also plenty of places for some retail shopping therapy.

Port Elliot is only an hour south of Adelaide and is located between the 2 seaside towns of Victor Harbor and Goolwa, and both are worth a trip. The old Cockle Train or 'Steam Ranger' runs along the coast and is a fun family outing. It leaves from Goolwa and travels through Port Elliot to Victor Harbor during school holidays and most weekends over peak season.

For information about markets and other attractions in the area please visit Government of South Australia's Fleurieu Peninsula web site.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was just wonderful for our family holiday this Easter! Plenty of room, excellent furnishings and a fabulous location! A great place to stay for all age groups and only a few minutes walk from the beach.

Just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Clever design like we had not encountered in a beach house before meant we all had so much space and weren't running into each other despite having a mix of adults, young kids and teenagers. All of the fixtures and fitting were first class and immaculate. A lovely three minute to beautiful boomer beach and 15 mins into the heart of Pt Elliot. So sad to leave. Will be back
