This is truly one of South Australia’s prettiest towns, where history is a part of contemporary daily life.
Strathalbyn has a thriving arts community with studio galleries and an ever changing display of original art in local cafes and the Stationmaster’s Gallery. There are more than 30 attractive, heritage listed buildings to admire. Stroll along Albyn Terrace, famous for its historic architecture, or High Street, which features antique, craft and specialty gift shops. Don’t miss the district museum in the original police station and courthouse.
Share a picnic with the ducks in the Soldier’s Memorial Gardens beside the tranquil Angas River or walk through some of the narrow lanes, admiring the architecture and gardens. Watch out for the roving resident Town Crier.
Harness, flat horse racing and dog racing tracks draw large crowds to their regular country meetings. The Fleurieu Way passes through Strathalbyn from Langhorne Creek, with fuel and machinery servicing available.
