The Fleurieu Peninsula is bounded by water with the Gulf St Vincent on the west, the Southern Ocean on the south and the Murray River, Lake Alexandrina and Coorong National Park (which together forms one of Australia's largest freshwater recreation regions).

As well as ample aquatic activities, sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, sheltered coves, the region offers unique access to wine and wildlife. There are over 75 cellar door wineries in the region, with great restaurants and eateries offering exiting regional cuisine.

For those seeking wildlife, there are Little Penguins on Granite Island (also known as Granite Penguin Island), kangaroos seen on hillsides and most of the national parks, in particular in Cox Scrub, Newland Head and Deep Creek. The region is also popular with bird watchers, with migratory waders seen in the Coorong National Park, whilst bird watching is also popular in the Onkaparinga Estuary, Aldinga Scrub and areas around Mount Compass, Goolwa and Hindmarsh Island.

Winter is popular for whale watching when the Southern Right whales are seen along the Peninsula coastline, especially along Encounter Bay.
