Getting There - Map Fleurieu Peninsula South Australia
Currency Creek was once planned to be the location for the capital of South Australia.
The Currency Creek Cemetery is the final resting place for many of the pioneering riverboat captains who travelled the Murray River in their paddlesteamers. As you explore the Currency Creek area, look out for the many 'Canoe Trees' - large eucalypts with sections carved from their trunks which the local Aboriginal people used to make canoes.

This is a perfect spot for a picnic, with the Currency Creek running past, tall gums and wonderful beautiful country terrain you will feel at one with nature. After your picnic lunch why not follow the path up stream to the head of the waterfall detouring to visit the Historic Currency Creek cemetery which houses many of the late river boat captains of a time past.
