Tour Description

Day 1

Departing Adelaide, you will be introduced to the Aboriginal history and European settlement of this beautiful city. Heading north along the eastern side of Gulf St Vincent, you will be entertained with stories about our early explorers.
We will pass the Hummocks, ancient remains of a great mountain range that once dominated the outback. Travelling down the Gulf you will find incredible diversity; from coastal mangroves to one of the richest farming areas in Australia.
Coffee break is at the Ardrossan Country Bakery, famous for its delicious homemade goodies.
Walk to Ochre Cliffs and discover coloured clays that have been used in Aboriginal ceremonies for thousands of years. You will be shown things that not many people even know about, including an ancient man-made fish trap made of heavy rocks that the Adjahdura people used for thousands of years.
Head south down the eastern side of Yorke Peninsula, through one of the best barley growing areas in the world, an essential component of our outstanding local beers. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the cliffs near Troubridge Point before making our way to the clear blue waters of Spencer Gulf.
Explore beautiful coastal tracks and small fishing villages before leaving our bags at our overnight accommodation. Here we find some of the world’s most spectacular coastal scenery. White, sandy beaches that seem to go on forever, rolling surf where pods of dolphins frolic and rugged cliffs of unspoiled beauty in a pristine environment. Kick back and relax with a wholesome home-cooked meal.
Meals: (L) (D)
Overnight: Holiday Home: The Pines/Park: Corny Point.

Day 2

A full day exploring beautiful Innes National Park and the spectacular, wild coastline of Southern Yorke Peninsula. Soaring cliffs and magnificent views over Kangaroo Island; this is a photographers dream! Walk, swim, explore pristine beaches. Come face-to-face with the abundant wildlife.
Explore the ruins of Inneston, an abandoned gypsum town along the Inneston Historic Walk. Home to around 200 people, Inneston was completely self-sufficient, having its own school, post office, bakery and general store. Over 26 shipwrecks lie off this coast. An interpretive maritime trail along the coastline recounts tales of tragedy, bravery and the final agonizing moments before these ships sank beneath the waves. Visit the rusted relic of the park’s most famous wreck, 'The Ethel', that sank in 1904 when it ran aground near the beach during a severe storm.
Take a short walk to the operating lighthouses at Cape Spencer and West Cape. On the horizon is another lighthouse on Althorpe Island Conservation Park. These not only provide safe passage for vessels today, but offer an insight into the area's maritime heritage.
At the end of the day capture a magical South Aussie sunset over the ocean.
Meals: (B) (L) (D)
Overnight: Holiday Home: The Pines/Park: Corny Point.

Day 3

Stroll the spectacular coastline of Spencer Gulf, look for dolphins in the surf or the rare Hooded Plover. Grab a fishing rod (provided) and try the great Australian experience of beach fishing for the sought after King George Whiting. Southern Right Whales visit in winter and can be seen from a number of vantage points.
On our way home we visit the Barley Stacks Winery to enjoy the local drop. Established in 1996, this winery is the first commercial vineyard/winery established on the traditional barley belt of Yorke Peninsula, which is renowned for growing the world’s best malting barley. Rich grey soil over limestone, produces the famous barley and also premium quality grapes.
We arrive back in Adelaide at approximately 5pm.
Meals: (L) (D)
