Tours for Wednesday, November 6th

Pre- and post-Conference tours

Regional infromation for pre- and post-Conference tours


There will be three tours offered on Wednesday afternoon. Note that for each of these, the tour operators have specified that there are both minimum and maximum number requirements. Thus, we cannot guarantee that a particular tour will be going ahead- this depends on how many people actually book in advance for that tour.

TOUR 1 : McLaren Vale Highlights

McLaren Vale

McLaren Vale is part of Adelaide's Southern Vales district, an area to the south of the city known particularly for its wine growing, the Mediterranean climate of the region being well-suited to viticulture.

The region is host not only to many wineries, but also to activities such as music, film and cultural festivals. The rolling hills of the area, and its generally pleasant climate, make the district a popular tourist destination for day-trips as well as longer-term stays.

Includes pick-up and return to the city; tasting at Wirra Wirra winery; tasting and a tour at the D'Arenberg Winery Cube; free time in the main street of McLaren Vale (time permitting).

Departs 12:45 sharp, returns approximately 17:45.

Minimum and maximum numbers apply.

Cost: $100/person.

TOUR 2 : Cleland Wildlife Park and Mt. Lofty

Mt. Lofty is the highest location in the Mt. Lofty Ranges, which give a picturesque backdrop to the city from north-east to south-west. It provides a superb vantage point for a panoramic view of the city and its surroundings.

Cleland Wildlife Park provides an opportunity to see and learn about a variety of animal species native to Australia. The generally open design of the Park allows visitors to see animals in their natural environment- it is a great opportunity to get close to these animals, and to learn about conservation efforts for our native fauna.

Includes pick-up and return to the city; photo stop at Mt. Lofty summit; entry to Cleland Wildlife Park; bag of food to feed animals in the Park.

Departs 12:45 sharp, returns approximately 17:30.

Minimum and maximum numbers apply.

Cost: $90/person.

Adelaide City and Hills

Adelaide is considered to be one of Australia’s most liveable cities. See this for yourself as you easily navigate the city streets. Adelaide sits in the middle of a tree-covered plain, resting between the rolling Adelaide Hills in the east and the long, white, sandy beaches in the west.

The Adelaide Hills, only 30 minutes from the city, are dotted with quaint villages and bustling towns. They stretch from the Barossa in the north, to Kuitpo Forest in the south.

Barossa Valley

Just over an hour’s drive from Adelaide, and you’re in the heart of the beautiful Barossa region - a stunning landscape, dotted with vineyards, farms and villages.Famous for its award winning wine, the Barossa is fast becoming known for its vibrant gourmet food as well.

From internationally acclaimed cellar doors to small family-run vineyards, and from Farm Shops to cafes & restaurants, the Barossa has something for every lover of great wine and delicious food.

Fleurieu Peninsula

Located only 45 minutes from Adelaide, the Fleurieu Peninsula is a bounty of food, wine and adventure. Triangular in shape, two of the sides offer over 250 kilometres of stunning coast and beaches, while inland fertile soils produce an array of food and award-winning wines.

The region offers everything from whale watching to wine tasting, beautiful beaches to biplane aerobatics, local produce and lush green rolling hills.

Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island, or "KI" as the locals call it, is a South Australia icon and one of world’s finest nature destinations, with breathtaking landscapes and fascinating wildlife. Just a short distance off the coast of South Australia, Kangaroo Island is internationally celebrated for its pristine wilderness and wildlife, as well as a thriving food and wine industry.

Murray River

The Murray River is an ancient river system and national icon that winds its way through 600 kilometres of South Australia to the Coorong, one of Australia’s most significant Wetlands and National Parks full of Aboriginal Culture, wildlife and wonderment.

See the river, its unique flora and fauna and the old riverside ports while drifting unhurriedly and quietly on Australia’s largest paddle steamer, the P.S. Murray Princess.
