Day trips to the world-class Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale wine regions (superb shiraz) plus the utterly photogenic Adelaide Hills – a rolling landscape of cool-climate wineries, cosy pubs and historic stone villages.

Barossa Valley Wine Region

With hot dry summers and cool, moderate winters, the  Barossa is one of the world’s great wine regions – an absolute must for anyone keen on a good drop.

Adelaide Hills Wine Region

The hills make a brilliant day trip from Adelaide: hop from town to town, passing stone pubs, old cottages, olive groves and wineries along the way.
