Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 8th 2009
44 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 9, 2009 MB TRAVEL www.innerwestweekly.com.au RICK ALLEN Someone's got to do it ... Top: The Links Lady Bay Golf Course. Below left: Old jetty at Port Willunga. Below right: Touring SA's Fleurieu Peninsula. IT was one of those ''it doesn't get much better than this'' moments. Late afternoon, a stunning sunset over the ocean, a glass of quality sparkling wine in hand, perched on the balcony overlooking the golf course where the kangaroos outnumbered the few remaining players on the course. No, it doesn't get much better. Sip. We were at Links Lady Bay, a new resort on the Fleurieu Peninsula, about an hour south of Adelaide. The course itself is a links course, rated one of South Australia's finest, designed by former professional and now television commentator Jack Newton. The peninsula is famous for its magnificent coastline, a haven for those who like to scuba, snorkel or fish -- or even just a walk along the beach to explore the rockpools as the tide recedes. If you want water, it's all around you. It also means you get some quite fresh sea breezes blowing in, so if you're planning a sub-par round, you're going to have to earn it. It's tough out there when the breeze kicks in. Aside from the golf, there's plenty to keep you occupied. The Fleurieu countryside is rolling hills, sheep and cattle country mostly, making driving both scenic and relaxing. It takes about 40 minutes to drive from one side of the peninsula -- in our case the west coast just outside Normanville -- to the eastern side where the picturesque Victor Harbor is the main attraction. It is certainly worth a visit and if you do, take the time to visit the Whalers Inn restaurant at the base of Rosetta Head -- affectionately known as The Bluff to locals -- which has spectacular views of the coastline. ''Don't miss it, whatever you do,'' said the man in the Normanville pub, with a conspiratorial wink. ''The view's great, but so is the food." He's a good judge -- the whiting and chips were succulent and fresh and just what we wanted. If you're around shortly after dusk you can also take in the return of the little penguins to shore. At 35cm and weighing 1.2kg, they are the world's smallest penguins, and the rocky coastline with its abundant seafood is the ideal breeding ground. While on the subject of wildlife, a short drive further around the peninsula brings you to the Coorong National Park, where the wetlands and lagoons make it one of Australia's premier breeding grounds for wading birds. More than 400 varieties of birds inhabit the area. Not into nature? No problem, how about tasting some of Australia's best wines.McLaren Vale, famous the world over for it generous, full- bodied reds, is an easy 30-minute drive north. You can visit some of the bigger wineries, such as Wirra Wirra, Coriole or Chapel Hill, and perhaps take in the spectacular views from d'Arrys Verandah at d'Arenberg winery for lunch. Then, if you want to try something on a smaller scale, head to the family run Foggo winery for the personal touch. Of course, wine and food go hand in hand, and the Fleurieu takes great pride in the quality of its produce. Aside from Whalers Inn with its wonderful water views, the quaint Fino restaurant in the small township of Willunga is certainly worth a visit. They're passionate about the freshness and quality of the food. In fact, they're happy to make up a menu for you from the freshest ingredients of the day -- no menu required. Voila! The 150-year old heritage-listed Leonards Mill, just a couple of kilometres up the road from our resort, has also had a reincarnation as an atmospheric restaurant and is also worth a visit. And for something a bit funky, Lillas at Yankalilla is great for coffee and a snack. If all this sounds a touch indulgent (and you wouldn't be wrong), you can ease your conscience with a walk -- the golf course notwithstanding. There are numerous walking tracks in the region, including the famous Heysen Trail at Victor Harbor. It is one of the world's longest walking trails -- a mere 1500km from Victor Harbour to the Flinders Ranges. Scuba divers have an equally well-known spot of their own -- at Yankalilla Bay the destroyer HMAS Hobart offers spectacular diving. All in all it's a heady mix -- spectacular scenery, superb food and wine, bush walking in Deep Creek National Park, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing, golf. Somehow shooting 14 over par doesn't seem too bad when you have a glass of Starvedog Lane sparkling wine to wind up the day. Followed, of course, by a glass of d'Arenberg Ironstone Pressings red, that is. To help you sleep.
