Fleurieu Food, Wine & Wildlife - Small Group Tour
- Duration: 8 Hours (approx.)
- Product code: TSA-3
Tours of the McLaren Vale wine region feature some of the most beautiful scenery in the state. Wineries include WirraWirra, d'Arenberg, Coriole and the historic Hardy's winery. Other attractions include the Olive Grove & possible cheese and wine trail. We head south to the coastal town of Goolwa, once a thriving paddle steamer port. Then enjoy lunch at the charming Flying Fish Café or Aquacaf overlooking the sea. After lunch we travel on the beach up to the Mouth of the River and travel to scenic lookouts in search of the Southern Right Whales that visit our shores with their newborn calves from June onwards. Interest depending we may also visit one of the local Brew Houses down near the sea.
We call into Victor Harbor and take a ride along the causeway, which links the mainland to Granite Island on Australia's only horse-drawn tram. See the fascinating Blue penguins through an interpretive center or view them at dusk as they make their way back to the island.
Return to Adelaide or stay overnight in Goolwa*(see notes).
