Welcome to Adelaide!
On arrival at Adelaide Airport you will be transferred to your hotel. The afternoon is free for you to relax.
Travel through the city of Adelaide northwards to the world renowned Barossa wine region. Enjoy the change of scenery as you make your way into the vineyards of South Australia’s premium wine region. Your first stop is TeAro Estate located in a heritage listed 1850s barn in the main street of Williamstown. In the intimate tasting room, you'll be treated to morning tea and wine tastings while hearing stories from 4 generations of family vignerons. Next visit Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop* (seasonal), an absolute must while visiting the Barossa. Maggie Beer - cook, writer and founder of 'Maggie Beer Products', offers tastings and sales of her full product range including limited edition seasonal produce. You can browse amongst her personally selected regional specialty goods, purchase one of her signed books or simply sit back and take in the view.
On arrival at Lambert Estate at Angaston, you'll enjoy a structured wine tasting while sampling local seasonal produce from gourmet platters, followed by the main course. You may wish to purchase a glass of wine from the impressive selection, or enjoy a coffee accompanied by their popular Chocolatier (Chocolate Port). Travel to Mengler Hill Lookout for sweeping views over the valley and then on to your final stop, Pindarie, a multi award-winning cellar door, which feels more like an Australian Homestead. The friendly staff doesn’t just pour the wine, they'll share the stories behind Pindarie, a great way to finish off your Barossa Food & Wine Experience.
An early morning pick up from your hotel for a scenic coach journey to Cape Jervis taking in the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula with its vineyards, coastal views and rolling hills. On arrival, board the SeaLink ferry for the 45 minute crossing to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. Here you will board your luxury SeaLink coach and your local driver/guide will take you on a tour of South Australia’s premier nature-based tourism destination. Your first official stop will be at Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery, an interesting bush engineered distillery that makes the most of its environmental resources. After testing and tasting the Eucalyptus products, continue onto Vivonne Bay Bistro located on a 260 hectare bush property, for a delicious two course lunch.
After lunch visit Seal Bay Conservation Park and enjoy a guided beach walk with a National Park Ranger amongst a breeding colony of wild and rare Australian Sea- lions. Your tour will then visit another amazing wildlife attraction, the fascinating Birds of Prey free-flight demonstration, an interactive and educational display of native Australian birds and raptors.
After your hotel pick up, visit Clifford’s Honey Farm to enjoy an informative talk by the beekeeper followed by tastings and an opportunity to sample homemade honey ice-cream and honey beauty products. Next, travel to Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary to look for Koalas nestled up in the eucalypts, followed by a scrumptious two course lunch.
After lunch travel to the western most part of the Island, Flinders Chase National Park, one of Australia’s largest and earliest conservation parks.
