The property is only 5 minutes’ drive to a handful of wineries and cellar doors. It is next to the Onkaparinga River National Park and several walking trails are easily accessible. McLaren Vale is 10 minutes away and gateway to award winning wineries and the Fleurieu Peninsula with its stunning coastline and cliffs, endless unspoiled beaches with golden sand and sparkling, clear waters.
There are over 80 cellar doors in the McLaren Vale district and more than one third of them offer local produce as part of the tasting experience - from high-end, starred restaurants to casual platters - there is a wine and food combination to suit any taste.
The historic township of Willunga is only 15 minutes away and each Saturday morning the Willunga Farmers Market is held where more than 80 farmers and artisan food producers from the region sell their fresh produce. Established in 2002 it was the first farmers market in South Australia and has become a hub for the community and visitors to gather and buy fresh and seasonal produce in the McLaren Vale region. Well worth getting up for.
The Shiraz Trail is a shared path for walkers and cyclists and links McLaren Vale to Willunga. It is well signed in McLaren Vale and easily accessible. There are few crossings along the way and long sections without a car in sight, making it both safe and relaxing. There are spectacular rural views over vineyards and the Willunga Range, along a linear reserve lined with gums and wild olives.
Below are a few suggestions to ensure a wonderful experience tasting the delicious food and wine on offer.
