Duration

12 days

Locations

Barossa Valley - Flinders Rangers - Adelaide Hills - Kangaroo Island

Overview

This adventure takes you into the depths of South Australia – a vast state of epic outback scenery, a majestic coastline, and boundless tracts of verdant vineyards, which produce more than half of Australia’s wine. There’s no better place to begin than in one of the most celebrated wine-producing regions, Barossa Valley. Situated northeast of Adelaide, this area is home to numerous world-class wineries, with Shiraz grapes being the local forte. You will then travel into the wilderness of Arkaba Conservancy in the Flinders Ranges, the largest mountain range in South Australia. Spread across ancient landscapes, this wildlife haven conserves Australia’s endemic flora and fauna, including kangaroos and emus. A stop at Adelaide Hills is next, one of the cooler wine regions in Australia, set within the picturesque Mount Lofty Ranges. With the guidance of a local expert, you’ll be led to the nearby McLaren Vale region, to sample some of the area’s best wines. Kangaroo Island, Australia’s third largest, is the final destination. It features numerous nature reserves teeming with wildlife, including koalas, wallabies, possums, sea lions, and a fur seal colony at Cape du Couedic. Your time here will be spent exploring Flinders Chase National Park, Latham Conservation Park, Seal Bay Conservation Park, and other corners of the island by car and on foot, stopping at viewpoints and for picnics – paired, of course, with fine Australian wines.
