Carrickalinga

Carrickalinga is a tiny coastal village that's become a popular holiday retreat, thanks to its white sandy beach and fabulous views over Roma Mitchell Bay and Yankalilla Bay. The HMAS Hobart was sunk nearby and is an exciting diving attraction. It was originally one of Australia's great naval destroyers, and is now Australia's most accessible war wreck. A short 10-minute boat ride from Marina St Vincent, the Hobart enjoys underwater visibility of more than 10 metres most of the year. You'll find plenty of quality coastal accommodation in Carrickalinga. It also offers reef snorkelling and fishing, making Carrickalinga a treasured location. The best approach is from the north via Myponga Reservoir to enjoy dramatic coastal views. See more of the Fleurieu Peninsula and a coastal playground famed for its laidback lifestyle, beach breaks for surfers of all levels of experience, and top fishing spots. It's a paradise for divers and snorkellers, with dramatic shipwrecks and stunning marine life, including the famed Leafy Seadragon. Enjoy some of the best produce and vineyards in Australia. The Fleurieu Peninsula is home to some prestigious winemaking regions, including McLaren Vale. The history of winemaking in this region goes all the way back to 1842, and it consistently produces some of the best drops you'll ever taste. There's also national parks, golf courses, top quality cuisine and more.
