McLaren Vale Hills, Valleys and Beaches

This is Onkaparinga, a magnificent landscape where the coast meets the vines.

Dotted with seaside and historic villages waiting to be discovered, our city is home to a spectacular 31km stretch of pristine beaches and rugged coastline.

Ocean lovers are in for a treat with the Mid Coast Surfing Reserve and two of the most dived spots in South Australia at Port Noarlunga and Aldinga.  

At the heart of our reputation for the best in food and wine is the internationally acclaimed McLaren Vale Wine Region.

You can visit boutique cellar doors, meet the winemakers in person and learn more about the skill, passion and dedication that goes into creating some of the world’s best wines.

Craft brewing and distilling is growing rapidly in Onkaparinga, with a number of new taphouses and distilleries to experience. 

Local produce is extraordinary with restaurants, cafes and providores proudly featuring the best local seasonal produce on their menus.

The region is also home to South Australia’s first and favourite farmers market – Willunga Farmers Market. 

From fantastic country bakeries and rustic cafes to international standard fine dining, there is something for everyone.

Onkaparinga hosts a range of events with a global audience including the Tour Down Under, as well as national TV shows including MasterChef and Sunrise have showcased our unrivalled offerings.

The region is a hub for visual arts and performance, with numerous galleries, studios and cellar doors regularly hosting exhibitions.

Every year our unique mix of experiences grows, so I encourage everyone to keep coming back and discovering.

Welcome, enjoy your journey and please don’t forget to share your great experiences on social media.

Lorraine Rosenberg
Mayor, City of Onkaparinga
