"Serene, safe and scenic"

Lived here over 2 years, it is a beautiful suburb to live in. We don't have much in the way of shops but it is only a 6 minute drive to Victor Harbor. We have a great library, and such a lovely drive into Victor overlooking our picturesque bluff and the ocean. Housing is affordable and you get alot for your money.In October we get whales visiting. I have lived in many other places in this country but this is the best by far.
Pros
  • Peaceful
  • Beautiful
  • Affordable
Cons
  • No shops of it's own
  • Does get very cold and windy

"Heaven by the beach"

We come down every weekend and stay at our holiday house and we absolutely love our little getaways every weekend. We have absolutely breath taking views. Our neighbours are amazing and go out of their way to help. Shopping is a bit naff and yoi basically have Big W because Target Country is terrible. It does have the potential to be so much more than it is.
