The Running Postman is located in Carrickalinga on the Fleurieu Peninsula, just over an hour’s drive south of Adelaide in South Australia. Carrickalinga's expansive, white sand beach is an easy 7 minute stroll away. In summer enjoy a dip in the crystal clear waters, laze in the sun with a good book, or simply delight in a peaceful meander along the beach. In winter, enjoy the escapism that only a quiet wind-swept beach can provide. Then allow the slow combustion fire at the Running Postman to welcome you back from your adventures and encourage you to snuggle up and relax.
