Our Story

At Fleurieu Food, we’re all about food, wine, produce, markets and people – all on the abundant Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. We’re here because we want to help you get the most out of our foodie region, whether you want to sample the best local produce, find the best table for dinner on the weekend or source a special local ingredient for your next menu.

We’re for YOU. Visitors, locals, tourists, chefs, restaurateurs, winemakers and everyone in between who steps foot in our foodie region.

To help you make the most of Fleurieu Food, tell us what YOU NEED from us, and we’ll see how we can help.
