This section of the Fleurieu penisula is the closest to Adelaide and is pretty, green rolling hills, high rainfall country (comparatively for South Australia).

It was worth the travel on windy roads to get to a spectacular view of the reservoir. The hills were beautiful and green , rolling around you and there were views of the ocean.
