Currency Creek

A well-established wine region with several popular wineries and cellar doors, Currency Creek was once muted as a site for the South Australian capital. Currency Creek is also well known for its creek, sidewalks, Aboriginal scar trees, railway viaduct and jet sprint racing. Its cemetery is the final resting place of many of the captains from the River Murray steam powered paddleboats. One of five wine regions making up the Fleurieu zone, Currency Creek has been forging a strong reputation for fine wine over the years. Stretching from the coastal village of Port Elliot in the west to Lake Alexandrina in the east - and all within an hour or so of Adelaide - it's a great spot for tasting wines all morning and watching whales from the coastline or hundreds of species of birds at Coorong National Park in the afternoon. The climate is Mediterranean, but temperatures are moderated by the surrounding waters of the Southern Ocean and Lake Alexandrina. About 560 hectares are under vine, to grape varieties including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Work off the calories with a three-kilometre hike around the heritage-listed Black Swamp wetland, home to many rare and endangered bird species such as the Mount Lofty Southern Emu Wren. While you're here, cruise The Coorong to see Australia's largest breeding colony of pelicans, wander through antique shops in the historic town of Goolwa, or see scarred trees used to make Aboriginal canoes. Currency Creek was named after Currency Lass, the first vessel to negotiate the Murray Mouth, the area lies six kilometres north of Goolwa on the road to Strathalbyn.

Currency Creek: Events

39 Forever Amity dry


Do you still think you're 25 even though your birthday stubbornly insists you're not? Do you look at J-Lo and hope you can look that good at 47, even though you may never have looked that good? Do you wonder how adults were born in the 1190's? This hilarious new show takes a candid look at female ageing in a world where Botox and Photoshop are the norm and looking your age feels like a failure.

'39 forever' is written and presented by Amity dry (The Block) after the success of her hit musical 'Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life', which has been played at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, the United Nations, been translated into Norwegian for a European season and performed at over 100 shows nationally. After winning critical and audience acclaim for her honest account of marriage and motherhood, Amity turns her focus to ageing in this comedic and poignant exploration on the pressure women face to stay forever young.
