Strathalbyn is a town in South Australia, in the Alexandrina Council. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Carrickalinga Beach and Ingalalla Falls. Step out of the city life by going to Waitpinga Beach and Hallett Cove Conservation Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Deep Creek Conservation Park (in Delamere) and McLaren Vale III Associates (in McLaren Vale). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at River Angas Walkway.
