Hills and Vales of South Australia
From the Barossa Valley to McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills, explore the rich springtime offerings of South Australia’s gardens, art, produce and wine.
Travel north-east from Adelaide to the Barossa Valley stopping at Anlaby Station, the historic homestead of South Australia’s oldest Merino stud, and at the estate of celebrated cook and author Maggie Beer. Visit colonial towns where established vineyards and architecture form the iconic image of this wine region, and delight in local produce at renowned farms.
In the Adelaide Hills, home of verdant and creative gardens, enjoy intimate tours of private gardens such as the stunning Wyndbourne Park and Highcroft Garden. Discover herb- and flower-planting practices at the farm of skincare brand Jurlique and explore the imaginative Tickle Tank property. At Sophie’s Patch, meet Gardening Australia’s Sophie Thomson and admire the flourishing garden surrounding her nineteenth-century stone cottage.
In McLaren Vale, indulge in prestigious restaurants and wineries scattered throughout this Mediterranean-like valley, including Coriole Vineyards and Tipsy Hills.
