WHAT THE DISTRICT OFFERS.
Many people come just for the beach: the relaxing stroll or swimming, fishing, sailing or snorkeling and scuba diving on the reef at Port Noarlunga just up the road. But there is plenty more on offer. The town has a variety of entertainments and restaurants for young and old and good shopping with the much-extended Colonnades.
There are pleasant walks in the natural reserves on the coast and in the hills and planned heritage walks for those interested. A big attraction is to do a drive along the magificent Fleurieu coastline. You could make a day of it and go right down to Cape Jervis and/or around to Victor Harbour and Goolwa (on the Murray) and then back up throught the hills.The other great attraction is the famous wine district of McLaren Vale, a short drive away, with its 60-odd cellar doors.
At the same time the city is conveniently accessed 35 or 40 mins away up the expressway or by train.
It is better to enter "Kellys' Gulf View" at the back via Dover Place (no.27) where there is off-street parking. The Kellys(Pat and Ern) have been an item for about 63 years and live in another unit in the same complex. Most times they will be available for information or assistance if required. Just ring the doorbell in the porch on the southern side of the building.
Commencement of occupancy is from 1.00 pm and departure by 10.a.m..
