This remarkable tour of South Australia, one of our most arid states, takes in a wide variety of agricultural visits that showcase how innovation has enabled farmers in the driest state on the driest continent to survive and prosper. Commencing in Adelaide, the tour encompasses the best of the state and will take you north to the stunning landscapes of the Flinders Ranges and back through the picturesque vineyards of the Clare and Barossa Valleys, then onto Kangaroo Island via the Murray Region and Fleurieu Peninsula. With two nights stay at Bungaree Station, one of Australia’s historic and iconic Merino sheep studs, plus a visit to nearby Martindale Hall, you’ll appreciate the pioneering spirit that defines the pastoral heritage of the state. Finish the tour with three nights on Kangaroo Island where boutique farming enterprises co-exist with pristine wilderness and natural beauty.
