About Middleton

Beautiful beaches and world-class surf breaks aren’t the only draws in Middleton. The historic town is perched on the Fleurieu Peninsula and surrounded by award-winning winegrowing regions. Cruise along coastal cycling trails, learn about the town’s pioneer heritage and enjoy world-class whale watching.

Things to do in Middleton

Middleton puts you just steps from some of the most spectacular beaches in Australia. Pull on a wetsuit and learn to surf in the whitewater with a local surf school. A long sandbar makes the break at Middleton Beach safe and beginner friendly. Rent a board and paddle out to the breakers if you’re a more experienced surfer.

Visit Middleton from July to October and spot whales breaching off the coast. The sheltered coves around Middleton are a sanctuary for Southern Right Whales and act as both mating grounds and nurseries. Enjoy some of the best whale-watching from Bashams Beach. There’s also a chance to spot Australian sea lions basking on the shoreline.

Rent a bike and explore the Encounter Bikeway, a scenic trail that links a series of coastal towns on the Fleurieu Peninsula. At just 30 kilometres, it’s easy to bike the entire trail in one day. Pack your swimsuit and cool off at beautiful beaches along the way.

Restaurants in Middleton champion local Fleurieu Peninsula growers. The peninsula is home to some of the top winemaking regions in Australia, including the prestigious McLaren Vale Wine Region, which is famous for its full-bodied Shiraz. Cabernet Sauvignons from the neighbouring Langhorne Creek Wine region pair perfectly with locally caught seafood.
