Victor Harbor with McLaren Vale Wine Region Tour from Adelaide

Victor Harbor with McLaren Vale Wine Region Tour from Adelaide

After hotel pickup in Adelaide, leave the city behind and travel by coach through the Mt Lofty Ranges, dotted with small villages and great views.

Arrive in the historic town of Strathalbyn after about an hour’s drive. You have free time to explore this quaint town on the Angas River — perhaps sit down for morning tea at one of the local cafes (own expense). Back on the coach, head to Goolwa, an old paddle-steamer town near the mouth of the Murray River, and then pass by Port Elliot on Horsehoe Bay on your way to Victor Harbor. Total driving time from Strathalbyn to Victor Harbor is about one hour.

In Victor Harbor, you have approximately two hours of free time to explore the town on your own. Maybe take the horse-drawn tram across the causeway to Granite Island, or visit a local restaurant for lunch (all food, drinks and activities are at your own expense).

Back on your coach, start the 45-minute drive north to the town of McLaren Vale in the popular Australian wine region of the same name. Stop for 30 minutes in town, where you can visit a cellar door (tasting room) for a wine tasting, if you wish, or check out local attractions like Medlows Confectionary or the Almond Train (own expense).

Finish your day trip with the 1-hour drive from McLaren Vale back to Adelaide, passing through the picturesque coastal towns of Christies Beach, Port Noarlunga and Moana.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Driver very good and informative, great tour. I wish in McLaren Vale we had the opportunity to visit at least one other winery and a little longer than the 30 minutes we had at Hardy's.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

From on-time pick up at our hotel, to drop off 8 hours later, this tour was everything it promised. Knowledgeable commentary along the way, beautiful photo opportunities, and longer stops were just the right length of time. Highly recommended if you want to get an overview of Adelaide and its surrounds.
