The Area: Cape Jervis
As the closest departure point to Kangaroo Island, Cape Jarvis is often filled with tourists looking for car and passenger ferry services to the famous island. It is also a popular base for fishermen with boats lining up the jetty. Bushwalkers may stretch their legs along the nearby Deep Creek Conservation Park or the Heysen Trail walk to Victor Harbour.
Beyond that, Cape Jarvis is a 45-minute drive away from the spectacular coastline of Fleurieu Peninsula. Famed for its laid back lifestyle, it is common to see the beach awash with surfers catching a wave and fisherman angling for a catch. It also offers an abundance of underwater adventures for keen divers and snorkellers, with sights of shipwrecks and stunning marine life sitting in the deep sea - including the famed leafy seadragon. Wine lovers will rejoice in the knowledge that the peninsula is home to a few prestigious winemaking regions, including McLaren Vale.
