The Barossa is also home of some of the most well known wine producers such as Penfolds Barossa, Saltram Wine Estate, Wolf Blass & Jacob’s Creek.

Today is at leisure to further explore this famous wine region. Follow one of the many food & wine trails, visit the local farmer’s markets or stop in to taste gourmet local produce at Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop. If it’s a more relaxing day you prefer, browse the galleries & museums of the Barossa or play a round of golf.

Day 3 - Barossa to McLaren Vale (124km)

Travel this morning through the Adelaide Hills to explore some of the 33 cellar doors & vineyards in the region & the many orchards to sample fresh fruits. The oldest surviving German settlement in Australia, Hahndorf is a must visit, where a strong German flavour still exists in the town today. Sample traditional small goods or visit one of the German bakeries that line the main street. Continue onto Strathalbyn, a pretty town with many galleries, antique stores, historic architecture & cafés, perfect for an afternoon break, before arriving at McLaren Vale.

Enjoy a leisurely day exploring the Fleurieu Peninsula’s most famous wine region, McLaren Vale, known for its Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Merlot & Chardonnay. The region produces exceptional wines, fruits, olives, almonds & cheeses.

Another day to take in this lush & vibrant area & pick up any last minute gifts or visit a few more cellar doors to take home any goodies. Consider a slight detour to Aldinga Beach & see the lovely views over the water before returning to Adelaide at your own pace.
