Welcome to Clarendon, South Australia.
Situated in the Adelaide Hills, 26 kilometres from the capital city, Adelaide, you will find the pretty rural village of Clarendon.
It is a gateway to the Fleurieu Peninsula that takes you through to the historic townships of Strathalbyn, Goolwa and Victor Harbor. It also borders the magnificent winery tourist route of the world famous McLaren Vale district.
Established in 1864 by English settlers, it soon became a farming, dairy and orchard area supplying the “big” city, Adelaide.
Nestled in the picturesque gullies, it still retains much of this rural atmosphere with some wonderful examples of heritage buildings of the late 1880s.
Now only 5 kilometres from the sprawling Adelaide suburbs, it is a welcome rural haven for tourists, walkers, cyclists and those seeking an Australian bushland and river recreation setting.
