The town and district of Mount Compass has put together a fabulous new Produce & Tourism Trail guide that embraces all things great about the area.
Apart from the obvious food and fine wine delights, tourists – indeed locals – may explore some of the many places of interest including art galleries, wetland areas, places to stay and the superb Fleurieu Golf Course, which is one of the best-kept secrets on the Fleurieu.
The Fleurieu Golf Club was an outstanding venue for last night’s official launch of the new trail brochure, which was produced with the support of the Alexandrina Council and small enterprises who have worked incredibly well together to offer something special for tourists and the overall benefit of the region.
Fleurieu Peninsula Tourism executive Miranda Lang said the trail was a great way to encourage people to experience what the Fleurieu had to offer.
“The manner in which those who are involved in the new guide came together to collaborate and work as partners would help to showcase what Mount Compass and the surrounding areas had to offer was amazing,” Miranda said.
“The region has a lot to offer. When you come together and create something like this brochure it is testament of whom you are, your character and passion, and your willingness to share your stories and open up your business to people.”
Family First MP Robert Brokenshire said South Australia needed to focus on its natural aspects and capacity that it had within our community . “It’s about food, wine and experience,” he said. “If it’s arts, recreation opportunities, food and experiences with panoramic landscapes in good climate then the whole package is here on the Fleurieu Peninsula. We need to market and work harder on that.”
The new Produce & Tourism Trail guide is the result of incredible hard work by a team largely led by Rebekah McCaul of Alexandrina Cheese, which is one of 24 key sites on the professionally-produced trail guide.
Also featured are the township of Mount Compass, Yamasset Studio Gallery, Protea World, Harvest the Fleurieu (sensational strawberries), Mount Magnificent Native & Rare Plant Nursery, Paintball Sports, Fleurieu Golf Course, Mount Compass Caravan Park, Wetland Boardwalk, John Lacey Artist Studio & Gallery, Compass Deer & Marron Farm, The Blueberry Patch, Compass Country Cabins, Tooperang Rainbow Trout Farm, Fleurieu Cherries, and Mount Compass Venison.
Copies of the new produce and tourist trail guide are available at Alexandrina Council, and visitor information centres.
