One of South Australia’s finest tourist destinations, the Clare Valley is a visual tapestry of vineyards and historic villages.
Only about an hour and a half from Adelaide, visitors are welcomed into a region boasting award winning wineries, amazing local produce and some of the best recreational destinations around.
Settlers from England, Ireland and Poland first moved into the district during the 1840s and left a rich heritage of villages and architecture, which remains largely intact. Many of these buildings are now used for the abundance of guest houses, premium restaurants and galleries in the area.
Take your bikes on a winery tour using the Riesling Trail, a 35km meandering pathway from Clare to Auburn where it meets up with the Rattler Trail, stopping for refreshments along the way.
The rural villages of the area are dotted with country hospitality – pubs, restaurants and cafes, as well as art galleries and cellar doors.
Renowned for its fine wine, the Clare Valley is a mecca for those who enjoy coupling world class wines with spectacular scenery.
Accommodation options include quaint B&Bs, hotels and motels, as well as a camping and caravan park.
Perfect to visit at any time of the year, the Clare Valley in November will have comfortable weather conditions, the grapevines will be green and there may even be some yellow canola rippling in the paddocks – a picturesque time of year.
