Location and area

Aldinga Beach is located on the southern fringe of Adelaide, under a one hour drive (46km) south east of the city on the Southern Express Way. The area forms the gateway to the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula and is a short drive into the McLaren Vale wine region.

Wild cliff scenery and a long, pristine stretch of sand are the hallmarks of Silver Sands Beach. The beach itself is one of the few beaches in Australia where cars are permitted to drive on parts of the sand, making it easier to view and explore the water and surf.

Casuarina Cottage is situated one block from the Esplanade surrounded by the bush of the adjacent Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park. Take a walk along the boardwalk to the lookout or lose yourself within the Conservation Park area.

Heating and cooling

Casuarina Cottage offers split system heating & cooling as well as a stand alone evaporative cooler and pedestal fans.

Thank you so much for this gift, it gave me something to look forward to. I went for walks on the beach and lunch out - it was a welcomed retreat from all the doctors and hospital visits. Thank you for your kindness.

I had a chance to revitalize myself. This gave me faith that good people still exist in this dog eat dog world, I almost cried.

I loved the small thoughtful things that welcomed us. A cake, fruit and the stones. To feel the caring is food for the soul.
