Exploring areas of Australia is always a memorable experience and when you have seen the sights in the great cities like Sydney and Melbourne, visited the Red Centre, Ayres Rock and Alice Springs, and spent some time along the Sunshine Coast and gone out to the Great Barrier Reef, you may be ready for an adventure of a different kind. This self drive tour begins in Adelaide and takes you through the beautiful wine growing region of the Barossa Valley before ending with a relaxing stay on Kangaroo Island.

Full Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Adelaide to Barossa

Collect your car in Adelaide after seeing all the sights and begin today's 70 mile drive via the Chain of Ponds to the Barossa, one of Australia’s most significant wine regions. The Barossa is famous for its Shiraz, Eden Valley Riesling and other premium wines, regional produce and acclaimed restaurants. Here you can visit some of the well known wine producers such as Penfolds Barossa, Saltram Wine Estate, Wolf Blass and Jacob’s Creek and enjoy some tastings.

Day 2: Barossa

Today is free for you to sample more of the delights of this famous wine region. You can follow one of the many food and wine trails, visit the local farmer’s markets or stop to taste gourmet local produce at Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop. If it’s a more relaxing day you prefer, browse the galleries and museums of the Barossa or play a round of golf on one of the superb courses. And if you are a true wine buff, you could always fit in a visit to another of the wineries.

Day 3: Barossa to McLaren Vale

Today after breakfast you travel through the Adelaide Hills to explore some of the 33 cellar doors, vineyards and orchards. Stop at Hahndorf, the oldest surviving German settlement in Australia and sample traditional small goods or visit one of the German bakeries that line the main street. Then continue onto Strathalbyn, a pretty town with many galleries, antique stores, historic architecture and cafes, before arriving at McLaren Vale, which is around 100 miles from Barossa.

Day 4: McLaren Vale

A full day to explore the famous wine region of McLaren Vale, which is known for its Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Merlot and Chardonnay. This is a region that also produces exceptional quality fruits, olives, almonds and cheeses, making it a gourmet paradise. Nestled between the rolling Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf St Vincent beaches, this is the birthplace of South Australia's wine industry and home to some of the world's oldest grape vines.

Day 5: McLaren Vale to Kangaroo Island

Today you leave McLaren Vale and drive the 50 miles to Cape Jervis for a 45 minute ferry trip to Kangaroo Island. The island is Australia’s third largest, boasting spectacular coastal scenery and landscapes, national parks, an array of local industries and abundant wildlife experiences. Visit Seal Bay Conservation Park for a chance to walk among Sea Lions, see the dramatic formations of Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch in Flinders National Park.

Day 6: Kangaroo Island

Another wonderful day to explore Kangaroo Island at your leisure. You can chill out on one of the beautiful secluded beaches of the north coast and go for a refreshing swim in the ocean. Now is also a good time to sample some of the island’s locally produced sheep cheeses and yoghurt, wine, eucalyptus oil, honey and delicious seafood. And for a spot of adventure you can visit Little Sahara and surf down some of the area's huge sand dunes.

Day 7: Kangaroo Island to Adelaide

Today you short tour comes to an end. Make the most of your time on Kangaroo Island and soak up some more of that tropical sunshine before taking the ferry back to the mainland and beginning the drive back to Adelaide where you can drop you car off at a city depot or back at the airport ready to catch an onward flight or begin your journey home. This self-drive trip is a great way to discover this region of South Australia and is a must for all lovers of fine wines.
