Day 1 - Arrive Adelaide

On arrival at Adelaide Airport, make your own way to your hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure.

Hotel: Chifley on South Terrace (Standard) or Stamford Plaza (Superior), Adelaide

Day 2 - Barossa Valley

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 four generations of family vignerons.

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 and Wine Experience.

Day 3 - Kangaroo Island

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 coach and your local Driver Guide will take you on a tour of South Australia’s premier nature-based tourism destination. Your first stop is Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery, for a guided tour and introductory talk about the history of the oil distillery and the chance to purchase some eucalyptus products. Then travel onto Vivonne Bay Bistro located on a 260 hectare bush property, for a delicious two course lunch.

Afterwards, visit Seal Bay Conservation Park for a guided beach walk with a National Park Ranger among a breeding colony of wild and rare Australian Sea-lions. You’ll 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. From here you’ll travel to Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, where you can get up-close to koalas, see penguins swim and play, hand-feed kangaroos and learn about endangered species.

In the afternoon, travel past Kangaroo Island’s sweeping beaches for incredible views and visit KI Brewery. This micro-brewery produces small quantities of craft beer that changes throughout the year. You’ll have the chance to sample the beer and if you like, you can purchase some to take home.
