• January
• The first stop on the world cycling calendar, attracting thousands of fans to Adelaide from across Australia and around the world. The festival of cycling showcases South Australia’s beautiful scenery, food, wine and experiences in some of the state’s most iconic regions. The Tour Down Under is more than just a cycling race; it brings together local communities and visitors to create a wonderful atmosphere with entertainment for the whole family.

Willunga hosts a leg of the Tour Down Under cycle race (including King of the Hill).
Willunga Almond Blossom Festival
• Last weekend in July
• Annual arts, social and entertainment festival. Back in the 60s, almond was the main source of revenue for the community, and with the spectacular display of white almond blossoms occurring in July, it saw an increasing number of visitors to the region. To capitalise on the tourists and raise much needed community funds, a festival started in 1969. The growth of the festival is one of the highlights in the event calendar for Fleurieu Peninsula and surrounding regions, with the festival parade becoming one of the largest street parades in South Australia.
