Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Start your full-day tour with morning pickup from either McLaren Vale or Adelaide or its environs. Climb into your comfortable and sturdy 4WD vehicle for the relaxed 40-minute drive to the internationally renowned McLaren Vale wine region.
    The adventure begins as your guide follows off-road tracks through beautiful landscapes with world-class vineyards and ancient geological sites. After some exploring, pull into an exclusive location for morning refreshments consisting of cheeses served with local white and red wines and handcrafted beers. Enjoy your first tastes of the region’s excellent products while taking in stunning views of the surrounding scenery.
    Next, pop into a winery where you meet a local winemaker and learn about the winery’s operations, then sample wine fresh from the barrel.
    Continue south where, if the tides allow, you drive along Gulf St Vincent on Silversands beach. Then your 4WD maneuvers along 4WD tracks through the Willunga Hills into Inman Valley and Second Valley. After a thrilling ride, stop at a spectacular and remote location to savor a gourmet picnic lunch provided by a premium McLaren Vale restaurant.
    After lunch, continue through gorgeous Deep Creek Conversation Park and learn about the traditional lands of the Kaurna and Ngarrindjeri, the Indigenous Australians of the Fleurieu Peninsula.
    Arrive at a lookout where you can snap photos of Kangaroo Island, the south coast and the Southern Ocean. Look for local wildlife, including kangaroos, native birds and migrating southern right whales from May to October. While enjoying refreshments including wine or beer, take in some of the Fleurieu Peninsula’s most dramatic views.
    Take a rugged track through a classic Fleurileu Peninsula landscape before stopping for tea or coffee at Leonards Mill restaurant, located in a gorgeously restored 155-year-old flour mill. Then make the 90-minute return journey to Adelaide to end a memorable day.
