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.
