Clare Valley

Escape to the charmingly secluded Clare Valley and disappear into a weekend of intimate discovery. Hide away in a quaint little bed and breakfast or venture out to explore the rolling countryside. Indulgence in delicious local food and wine in the heart of Australian Riesling country. The wider Clare Valley is a region of plains, pastures and valleys, stretching 200kms long and 100kms wide. Located about two hour’s drive north of Adelaide, the secluded Clare Valley is a hidden gem bounded by picturesque farmland. The region is made up of over 30 towns and many small villages. Its main industries are tourism, viticulture, cereal crops and merino wool.

The Clare Valley has more than 30 cellar doors, and the wineries all sit along a narrow 40km corridor between Auburn and Clare. A bike trail, aptly named the Riesling Trail, follows this corridor as it criss-crosses the Clare Valley through vineyards and wineries, scattered between each town and village. Mountain bike riders will relish the Mawson Trail, which takes them the length of the Clare Valley.
