About This Trip

Send your taste buds into overdrive with a gastronomic tour of the wine lands surrounding Adelaide, then allow your eyes to soak in the wonder of the outback on a river cruise up the Murray River.  

 

The cosmopolitan, easy-going city of Adelaide has so much to offer. It has a rich history and is historically known for its multitude of church spires, but in the last couple of decades, Adelaide’s culinary scene has exploded, bringing floods of exciting bars and restaurants onto the streets and lanes of this compact city. Choose from two outstanding tours to compliment your time here and explore some of the regions finest wines. Either choose to visit Adelaide Hills, home to cooler climates and boasting some outstanding examples of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, or you can head to McLaren Vale, where big, bold Shiraz holds dominion over all other grapes. 

 

After a couple of days exploring Adelaide, it is time to hop onboard your floating home for the next 4 nights, the Paddlewheeler PS Murray Princess. The expert crew will take you up the mirror-flat Murray River, surrounded on all sides by deep greens and the rustling of native wildlife. Over four nights you will cruise upriver to Blanchtown, experiencing all facets of the outback, exploring its wildlife, culture and food, with your expert guides always at hand. Visit the archeological treasures at Ngaut Ngaut Aboriginal Reserve, take a nocturnal tour in a purpose-built cart to witness the power of nature at night. Cruise to the cellar door at Burk Salter boutique winery and for the full immersive experience, get stuck into a nutritious bush tucker breakfast.  

 

To get a real feel for this incredible part of Australia, this immersive 6-night tour will show you all sides and leave you with everlasting memories.

highlights

Adelaide is such a wonderful centre to explore the rich variety of experiences in its surrounding regions and we wanted to put together a tour that lets you explore in style. There is so much to see and do in Adelaide, but to be honest, for most people, it is all about the wine. Its location is one of the world’s best for lovers of the noble grape, so we wanted to include a tour that really catered to your tastes. For those who like subtle, refined wines, we crafted a tour around Adelaide Hills to showcase their wide array of styles. If big, bold, rich explosions of red magic is more your thing, then flip a coin between McLaren Vale and Barossa. Whatever you choose, the focus is on the natural resources, with wine at the heart, but a discovery of the foods and alternative beverages adds so much depth to the tour.  

 

Despite being surrounded by wine lands, Adelaide is also so close to the outback and we wanted to allow our guests to get out and explore this wonder of nature. We want you to get a feel for what it is like to live out here and to discover the Aboriginal way of life that works in tangent with the wild beauty of the outback. With a visit to Swan Reach township, an immersive visit to the Sunnydale Woolshed Show and a nature cruise in a flat-bottomed tender boat, you will explore how settlers have tamed the land. A visit to the enchanting and culturally important Ngaut Ngaut Aboriginal reserve will allow you a window into the physical and dream lives of the original inhabitants of this area. Fascinating and moving, it adds depth to a tour that is packed with wonder.  


location

Your accommodation in Adelaide is situated in the thriving west end, a short 30-minute bus journey from the airport. Private transfers can also be arranged. We have arranged a coach to collect you from your accommodation to meet with the PS Murray Princess at Mannum, and return you to accommodation or the airport at the end of the cruise.
