Get a taste of world-famous wine regions and award-winning restaurants right at your fingertips.

Day 2: Barossa Food & Wine Experience (B, L)
Enjoy a full day food and wine journey to South Australia’s premium wine region, the Barossa. Take time to sample some of the Barossa’s finest wines and gourmet food that makes this wine region so famous. This tour includes a visit to Mengler Hill Lookout, Barossa Valley Chocolate Company, Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop, two award winning cellar door experiences, a gourmet two course lunch and wine tastings.

Day 3: Kangaroo Island Full Day Adventure (B, L)
Enjoy a simple breakfast before your ferry to Kangaroo Island. Experience the amazing ‘in-flight’ Birds of Prey Display at Raptor Domain, one of Australia’s most interactive display of birds and raptors. Then discover Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery and enjoy a two course lunch among the gum trees. After lunch, enjoy an informative tour of Clifford’s Honey Farm where you can sample homemade honey food, beverages and beauty products with an opportunity to purchase famous honey ice cream. Continue to a premier cellar door for structured wine tasting before your ferry and transfer returning to Adelaide. NB. Note that honey sampling at Clifford’s Honey Farm may not be available due to COVID restrictions.

Day 4: Transfer to Mannum, Murray River Cruise (B, D)
Enjoy a pick up from your hotel at approximately 1:30pm bound for historic Mannum, the birthplace of the Murray River trade. Step aboard PS Murray Princess for a mid-afternoon departure and enjoy a Welcome Dinner as we cruise under floodlight to our overnight mooring. Keep your eyes out for nocturnal wildlife such as kangaroos, wombats, tortoises and egrets on the riverbank.

Day 5: Murray River Cruise (B, L, D)
In 1879 the first bridge to span the Murray River was built at Edwards Crossing, which quickly became the bustling township of Murray Bridge. After a hearty breakfast, choose to join a guided tour of the town’s historic landmarks and local attractions or go on a wildlife tour at Monarto Safari Park (additional cost). Those who choose to experience Monarto Safari Park will arrive back on board the Murray Princess in time for lunch then join us in the Sturt Dining Room for a special presentation on the bounty of food and wine produced in the Riverland. This afternoon, we continue our journey upriver and tonight we moor at Salt Bush Flat. After dinner, enjoy being entertained by our talented crew.

Day 6: Murray River Cruise (B, L, D)
This morning, join a guided nature walk where our guide will share the secrets of the local flora and fauna. Near Fromms Landing, we turn and head downriver to River View Lodge (near Piggy Flat/Coolcha) where your discovery vessel awaits for a wildlife tour. Travelling in small, personalised groups, we explore the maze of the river and the birdlife is amazing. Watch for darters, herons and egrets feeding along the river’s muddy edges. The afternoon offers a choice of bocce or fishing challenges before a delicious final dinner in the Sturt Dining Room.

Day 7: Disembark at Mannum, Transfer to Adelaide Airport (B)
Cruise back to Mannum where you will disembark after breakfast. You will be transferred to Adelaide airport arriving at approximately 12:00pm for flights departing in the afternoon or evening.
