Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

A popular as a holiday destination on the Fleurieu Peninsula, Middleton is home to smooth, open beaches and is located on the old railway line between Goolwa and Victor Harbor. The area is also well-known for beach fishing and the town's rocky point creates a good surfing break for Southern Ocean swells. The town is also a good spot for whale watching during Winter and Spring.

The town is named after a Middleton in Ireland. The original inhabitants of the area were the Ngarrindjeri people.
