Description

After winding our way through the suburbs and scenic Adelaide Hills for an hour, we stop at Gumeracha, home to the World’s Largest Rocking Horse. It also boasts a café and Australia’s only remaining wooden toy factory, and for some the highlight is hand-feeding the remarkably tame kangaroos, goats and alpacas.

In Williamstown, the gateway to the Barossa, we visit the astonishing Whispering Wall.  As tall as a 9-storey building and constructed in a perfect semi-circle over 110 years ago, it’s possible to hear someone whisper from one end of the dam wall to the other end 140 metres away.  Please note; on days where there is a Fire Ban, we cannot visit the Whispering Wall for safety reasons.

As the vine leaves replace the gum trees, we enter the largest and most celebrated wine region in Australia. Our first stop is the world-famous Jacob’s Creek, the largest exporter in the valley. A local guide will provide an informative explanation of their wines and offer a selection of their famed shiraz, merlot and rosé for tasting.  Our next stop, Kies, is a family-owned boutique winery, where the setting is quaint and the service is personal. Their exquisite wines are not available for sale anywhere else in the world.

For lunch, we’ll head to Saltram’s for gourmet pizzas. Yoou’ll also get the chance to do a cellar door tour and taste a selection of their wines.

After lunch we’ll slowly make our way to Wolf Blass.  This world renowned winery created in 1966 by a German migrant, Wolfgang Blass, is nowadays one of the most awarded wine brands. We’ll get the chance to taste their wide range of wines before we pop into our last winery Lambert estate, a family owned business that made their name thanks to their Chocolate Port. Finally we’ll stop by Mengler’s Hill lookout for superb views of the Barossa Valley before heading back to Adelaide, arriving at approximately 5pm.
