Itinerary

Day 1

Adelaide to Mt Gambier

What kind of a trip through South Australia would it be without wine; so, tick off this box as you are headed to the famous Coonawarra Wine region. It is here you put on your lab coat and learn the intricate art and skill of mixing the very own wine blend at the famous Wynn's Coonawarra vineyard; you even get your own label bottle to take home. Mt Gambier awaits with a diverse landscape complete with volcanic crater lakes and sink hole caves. The feature night stay tonight is in the Old Mt Gambier Gaol, just a stroll from the main street of this beautiful town with many dinner options and a sound and light show in the city cave each night.

Day 2

Mt Gambier to Grampians National Park

A morning stroll through the Valley Lake conservation area allows you to learn about the local flora & fauna that way the land would have been pre human arrival! This also is a great opportunity for some Kangaroo spotting and catch them as they feed on the grasses. Before leaving town, you will be checking out the famous Blue Lake and of course the Ulpherstone Sink Hole. Crossing from South Australia into Victoria you'll travel to the Grampians National Park and a place of great significance for the Indigenous population. Pull on the hiking boots today and head to the base of McKenzie Falls, the highest waterfall in the Grampians Range. As you pass through the always stunning rugged beauty on offer, you'll discover an ancient aboriginal rock art site before it's off to a lookout for one last spectacular 360 degree view of the Northern Grampians. Tonight your champion Topdeck driver/guide will cook up a storm with an authentic Aussie barbeque as the local Kangaroo population look on.
