PRODUCE:  The Fleurieu Peninsula boasts some of the best produce in the country including: cheese, milk, honey, meat, fruit and vegetables with many farms offering their produce to those who follow along the tourist food trail.

WINE:  The Fleurieu Peninsula has four world renowned wine regions:  McLaren Vale, Currency Creek, Langhorne Creek and Southern Fleurieu hosting opportunities for visits to the numerous cellar doors and local restraunts and cafes. Wineries support various music events like Day on the Green and the fabulous Sea and Vines Festival.

CYCLING: The Tour Down Under annually boasts at least two stage finishes.

HISTORIC TOWNSHIPS:  Historic Willunga township (fifteen minutes drive) supports Adelaides first Farmers Market every Saturday morning with a larger general market every month and patronage comes from near and far to select some of the finest produce from the local region. Port Willunga (fifteen minutes drive) well known for the Star of Greece cafe (named after a ship wreck) boasts fabulous views over the Gulf of St Vincent and southern Adelaide coastline.  Sellicks Hill circa.1862 (ten minute drive) offers a wonderful place to enjoy good food, wine and views of glorious sunsets over coastline and the Southern Vales.

SURFING:  Myponga Beach (ten minute walk from Brooklyn Farm) offers a good left hand break for surfing in winter whilst there are other surfing beaches all along the coastline towards Adelaide and southern coasts of the Fleurieu Peninsula throughout the year.  Adjacent to the bottom of the Fleurieu Peninsula lies Kangaroo Island (fifty minute drive to the Ferry at Cape Jarvis) which hosts a surf carnival annually to support the world circuit.

DIVING AND SNORKELLING: All along the coastline opportunities to explore the marine habitat exist and with the wreck of the HMAS Hobart sunk at Lady Bay (twenty minutes drive) this provides a habitat famous on the world diving circuit.  The Leafy Sea Dragon is unique to these parts and is celebrated annually at Normanville (fifteen minutes) with the Leafy Sea Dragon Festival.

FISHING:  Myponga Beach also sports a great catch! Locals fish for squid, whiting garfish to name a few species in our local bay often from just a canoe.  Catch off the beach, off the rocks or try spearfishing in the calm waters.

SWIMMING:  Enjoy the opportunity with the family in the safe beach here at Myponga Beach (ten minute walk).  A very quiet and clean beach!

CONSERVATION:  A small colony of Hooded Plovers remain on the beach at Myponga and locals are determined to save this vulnerable bird which lay eggs directly onto the sand.  Efforts are made to restore vegetation around vulnerable areas of the estuary and surrounding coastline.  This remains an ongoing project...

WALKING TRAILS: Here at Brooklyn Farm we are in the process of providing opportunities to safely walk around the farm offering walking/running to suit various fitness levels.  The local community are in the process of developing a dedicated walk along coastline and down onto the beach.  This remains an ongoing project...
