The Manse

South Australia boasts an abundance of quality regional produce, and its capital Adelaide is where it all comes together. Head to Gouger Street, Adelaide’s key eat street, the gateway to the Adelaide Central Market and the exotic, bustling food halls and malls of Chinatown. For a great breakfast spot, Hutt Street fits the bill, and the casual atmosphere of nearby Rundle Street in Adelaide’s East End makes it a popular location for alfresco lunch and evening dining. For an elegant wine bar that needs to be seen-to-be-believed, Apothecary 1878 on Hindley Street is a must. Escape the CBD for fashionable dining locations just five minutes north of the city – the restaurants of O’Connell Street and Melbourne Street won’t disappoint. And if you drive east a further five minutes you will reach The Parade in Norwood, alive with cafes, pubs, Thai and Italian restaurants and more. And with so many world-class wineries on its doorstop, you can guarantee that on your night out on the town you’ll be spoilt for choice in the drinks department as well.

Wine Regions Touring the Adelaide Wine Regions is an easy and enjoyable day trip from Adelaide city centre. Within an hour and half’s drive, some of the world’s most famous wines are waiting to be sampled. ADelAiDe hillS The Adelaide Hills is undeniably one of Australia’s most picturesque wine regions. Luckily it also happens to have the goods to back up its stunning looks and consistently produces cool climate wines that garners admiration – and awards – from all corners of the globe. Getting out of Adelaide and driving a mere 20 minutes will have you in one of Australia’s varied wine regions – which means that its produce is not limited to a particular grape variety, or taste. The cooler, highest parts of the region produce chardonnay and pinot noir, while further down the hillsides wineries are known for their rieslings, sauvignon blancs and pinot gris. There are 48 cellar doors in the area and with more than half of them open to the public for tastings you are guaranteed to find a drop that tickles your taste buds, no matter when you visit the region. For sophisticated wines and a lunch with a view, make sure you visit the Chain of Ponds, stock up on supplies for an indulgent picnic at the Birdwood Wine and Cheese Centre, or if it's chilly, sample some of the region’s finest by the fire at Shaw + Smith.

If you're in the Adelaide Hills on a Sunday, make sure you head to Nepenthe winery for one of their Sunday Sessions. The winery puts on an afternoon of live music, great food and fantastic wine every weekend, which showcases local talents and local produce, and guarantees a memorable day out for all who attend!

If you like your big reds, a visit to the Barossa Valley is an essential stop on any visit to Adelaide. The star in the region’s crown is undeniably its shiraz, which has built an international reputation, however wineries also produce luscious cabernet sauvignon, grenache and mourvedre varieties. Just over an hour’s drive from Adelaide, Barossa Valley is home to more than 80 cellar doors and tasting rooms, from boutique labels to large-scale international corporations. In the warmer months, the relatively flat terrain and compact nature of the region means that cycling is a popular way to work your way through the wineries – collecting supplies for a picnic along the way. There are many big names in the region, and a visit to the gallery and restaurant at Jacob’s Creek as well as the imposing Wolf Blass Centre are a must, while some of the smaller wineries such as Two Hands and Murray Street vineyards offer a more intimate, and yet no less impressive experience. If you're keen to discover the area's best kept secrets under the guidance of someone in the know, book a single- or multiple-day tour with Top Food and Wine Tour, who specialise in small groups, local wine makers and indulgent experiences (see p.27 for more details).

McLaren Vale

MClAReN vAle McLaren Vale is one of those destinations that somehow manages to meet everyone’s holiday requirements no matter how incompatible they may seem. Country getaway? Check. Stunning beaches? A cultural paradise with over 65 cellar doors, world-class restaurants, a renowned art scene and even the Classic Adelaide Car Rally in the spring? Check, check, check. A mere 45-minute drive out of the city will see you in an area which seems to have been designed simply to delight. The Mediterranean climate has fostered a long line of shiraz-makers – it’s the region’s specialty and you won’t be disappointed. Strong reds are the order of the day, with cab-sauv and grenache being common, but white drinkers will be more than satisfied with the array of chardonnay, sauv-blanc and riesling. Most wineries are located close to one another, but to avoid the 'designated driver discussion', book a tour with Top Food and Wine Tours, who specialise in small groups, local wine makers and indulgent experiences. The Willunga farmers market is a must-visit and watching the sunset on the beach while sipping a local shiraz is the perfect end to any day.

If you're willing to put in the time, some extra hours in the car will have you in two of the state’s finest wine regions. Heading north from Adelaide for two hours, a little past the Barossa, you will happen upon the Clare Valley – first settled in 1840 it is an area steeped in history, and the region’s finest riesling! The first vines were planted by Jesuit priests to make sacramental wine in 1851 at Sevenhill Cellars, which is still open to the public today. Sevenhill offers tours of the underground cellars and crypts – as well as delicious reds and whites. The Clare Valley stretches for about 40 kilometres and is home to more than 40 cellar doors – which makes exploring the region very easy once you are there. Some of the biggest names in the business originate from here, you can sample the award-winning drops of Taylor’s Estate, Jim Barry Wines and Annie’s Lane, whose picturesque grounds are perfect for a picnic when the weather is fine.

If instead you flip the coin and decide to head south, a trip of around five hours from the Adelaide CBD will plant you firmly within the Limestone Coast. Probably best known for its Coonawarra region, the area is also home to the Mount Benson, Wrattonbully and Padthaway wine regions which all consistently produce big, robust reds. While the cabernet sauvignon of the area has built a name (and loyal following) internationally, all reds from the region undeniably have something special about them. The distinctive flavour of Limestone Coast wines is due to the layer of unique terra rossa soil over limestone in which the vines are grown, combined with perfect growing conditions of warm summers and cold, wet winters. There are more than 40 cellar doors in the region, but some of the finest wines can be found at Wynn’s Coonawarra Estate, Hollick Wines, Mt Benson Premium Estate and Russett Ridge.

Beyond Adelaide MURRAy RiveR Murray River Tourism Pty Ltd; 8363 6244; www.murrayriver.com.au

The Murray River is an Australian icon. At 2,756km long, it's the third longest navigable river in the world (after the Amazon and the Nile). The wide expanses of the river are a veritable playground, ideal for more laid back activities like fishing and kayaking or even water skiing for the more adventurous, but a uniquely Australian activity is to grab a group of friends and a collection of li-los and partake in a ‘river float’ as you bob down the water en masse. The Murray River's everchanging landscapes and riverbanks make for an idyllic getaway – climb aboard an authentic paddle wheeler for a river cruise, or hire a houseboat for the ultimate room with a view. The river is also home to many producers of fine food and wine, so take time to stop off at the many towns that line the Murray for a gourmet tour like no other.

There’s no better way to see the landscape of the Murray River than from your very own kayak, and the Murray is home to arguably some of the best

dedicated kayak and canoe trails in the world. Up-close encounters with wildlife, native birds as well as the spectacular fauna along the banks, are guaranteed. If you’re not an experienced kayaker, a guided tour where all the equipment is supplied and a qualified guide with canoeing experience leads the way is a fantastic option.

you will stumble across fossils, be awed by Aboriginal rock art and see historic ruins of early settlement. For nature enthusiasts, the ranges are seething with bird and reptile life, and the eagleeyed may even catch a glimpse of the rare yellow-footed rock wallaby. Make sure you visit the imposing natural amphitheatre of Wilpena Pound, housed inside a rock crater, and allow time to lose yourself in the beautiful isolation of the deep outback, exploring walking trails or 4WD desert tracks. If you are feeling lucky there are even areas where you can fossick for opals – just be wary of catching opal fever – and if you bring your clubs you can take a round or two on the famous grassless desert golf course.

yORKe peNiNSUlA The Yorke Peninsula is home to coastal towns and blissful beaches – perfect for fishing breaks or seaside holidays. The towns that line the coast are typically beachy, with a cruisy atmosphere and easygoing locals, and long summer days there can be filled with surfing, swimming, and of course, the local specialty, fishing. The region is know for the quality and diversity of its seafood, and the more adventurous might even be lucky enough to sample something they catch themselves! The shellfish, from blue swimmer crab to scallops, is particularly fine. If you’re looking to step off the treadmill, Yorke Peninsula’s breezy pace is just what you need.
