Due South Australia : Due South Australia 2014
E ver visited a cellar door? Of course you have. But exploring one of South Australia’s major wine regions is quite a different proposition. The Barossa, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale are each quite distinct and offer a wide range of vineyard-based experiences – from cycling trails and chauffeur driven tours to hot air balloon flights and gourmet cooking classes. At Yalumba, for example, you can watch the ancient art of cooperage in action. Because so many wineries are family owned, you’ll also get to meet the people who actually make the wine while enjoying fantastic regional fare. Learn about the special characteristics of each region and, hopefully, educate your palate along the way. Grape Escapes Kids Play Adrenaline Rush ICON A way from Adelaide’s elegant boulevards, funky laneway cafés, modern sports stadiums and fine municipal gardens lies quite another type of South Australia. This is a place where you can go cage diving with sharks, hot air ballooning, swim with sea lions, scuba dive onto 19th century ship wrecks and mountain bike through some of the world’s oldest landscapes. If you’ve never come face to face with a Great White shark, now is the time. Port Lincoln has the biggest population of these ocean predators on the planet. Just one example of how South Australia will get your heart pumping stronger. Savour the moment.
