The following is a list of birdwatching sites on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. Most of these are areas set aside for nature conservation & readily accessible to the public (except West & Pullen Is), with the majority under the control of the SA DEH (Department of Environment & Heritage). While these are very good birdwatching sites, there are many other public and private areas which are also good for birdwatching.
These sites are listed in an anti-clockwise direction starting in the north west.
