the problem is not with Adelaide.

What a great reason to visit the Fleurieu Peninsula
Do the Million Paws Walk on the Second Valley Heritage Trail
The Heritage Fleurieu Coast Festival is a celebration of life on the Fleurieu Peninsula, focusing mainly on the coastal towns of Yankalilla, Normanville, Second Valley and Delamere. Some events are also being held in other towns including Myponga, home of the popular indoor market.
While the festival is part of South Australia's History Festival, there are many other cultural activities such as art exhibitions happening at the same time. We attended the regional launch of the history festival at the Yankalilla Museum and it was wonderful to see locals dressed in Victorian costumes, and providing free live entertainment and musical performances.
Entrance to the Yankalilla Museum at the Yankalilla Bay Visitor Information Centre
The Yankalilla and District Historical Society and the District Council of Yankalilla have worked together to put on a fantastic variety of events throughout May, which will encourage people in Adelaide to come and visit the rolling hills of the district more often. Many of the events for the Heritage Fleurieu Coast Festival are free, while others cost just a modest amount.
One event is so popular that it has already booked out: a bus trip from Adelaide to the beautiful Fleurieu Coast with a guided tour of Old Normanville and Old Yankalilla has very quickly sold out, although you can do a similar self-guided tour by bicycle yourself from the Yankalilla Bay Visitor Information Centre. Most other events are still open for booking online.

Find the full program for the Heritage Fleurieu Coast Festival online here, or follow the Heritage Fleurieu Coast Festival on Facebook. I found the Facebook feed useful because new ancillary events are being continually announced. There are exciting things to do throughout May on the Fleurieu coast of South Australia for the history festival, and it's a beautiful time of the year to visit. Don't miss it!
