The number one draw card to the Southern Ocean Walk is of course the spectacular scenery.  However, equally important is the opportunity to experience the history, people and yes, the food of our region.  At every step we have sought to incorporate produce from the Fleurieu Peninsula to make this a memorable experience for our guests.

Yesterday we picked mulberries from a local tree that was planted 160 years ago and is still producing magnificent fruit!

Once you’ve picked mulberries you’ll understand why you’ll never find this delicious fruit as a commercial jam on supermarket shelves.

It is labor intensive with lots of fruit required for small batches and oh, did I mention you’ll look like an extra in Chainsaw Massacre by the time you’ve finished?

But ah, the rewards! A truly heavenly conserve which our guests will be able to enjoy for breakfast before embarking on each day’s adventure.
