Barossa Valley

Today was my one organized day trip in Adelaide. South Australia is known for its wine, so I figured I’d have to head to the Barossa Valley and try it out for myself. The view from the drive was lovely.

Our first stop was to Te Aro Winery, but we stayed inside the cellar door for the tasting, so no pictures. Our next stop was to Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop.  Maggie is a big name here, so the Australian’s on board were very excited to be going to her shop. There were many samples inside, and a beautiful pond with turtles and ducks outside, so I quite enjoyed the stop.

We headed to Lambert Estates next for lunch and our next tasting.

We stopped at a lookout for a great view of the valley.

Our last winery of the day, Pindarie, was the best – the best wine and the best view.  The perfect end to a great day!


I got into Adelaide yesterday afternoon, and made a quick visit to the cinemas to watch Beauty & The Beast (it was fantastic). So today I got up bright and early and headed down to Glenelg on the tram, a nearby seaside town. It was cute, but had clearly become very touristy over the last few years.

That afternoon I wandered around Adelaide’s main strip, Rundle Mall, and got some good window shopping done.
