Lifestyle

Willunga House is surrounded by many wonderful diversions that can be savoured in moments or indulged in for days.

The historic township is a delightful place to wander and explore. Every Saturday morning between 8.00 am and 12.30 pm the renowned Farmers Market comes to life. Here, local producers sell fresh breads, pastries, nuts, cheeses, fruits, preserved meats, herbs, jams, and many other delicious treats.

There are a number of excellent places in the township to enjoy a coffee and a light meal. There are restaurants like Fino – named as one of the top regional restaurants by Gourmet Traveller. – Darry's Verandah, Penny's Hill and the fabulous pizza experience that is 'Russells'.

There are great walks to be had from Willunga House and an extensive network of bike tracks for the cycling enthusiasts.

From Willunga you can visit over 70 wineries in the McLaren Vale region and the emerging wineries in the Adelaide Hills and southern Fleurieu Peninsula. Victor Harbor and Goolwa are just a 30 minute drive from Willunga and we make an ideal stop-over to and from Kangaroo Island.

Willunga is only 12 minutes from the beach. And what a beach it is! Port Willunga is a pristine stretch of coastline with golden beaches bounded by crystal clear water and imposing limestone cliffs. If you love the beach, this is a must. The sunsets are absolutely stunning.

And, as a little aside, the jetty at port Willunga was built in 1850; the same year as Willunga House. It, too, is heritage listed but the years and the elements haven’t been quite as kind to it as they have been to the house. Still, we love it, and its remnants form the basis of our logo.
