Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup in Adelaide, leave the city behind and travel by coach through the Mt Lofty Ranges, dotted with small villages and great views. 

Arrive in the historic town of Strathalbyn after about an hour’s drive. You have free time to explore this quaint town on the Angas River — perhaps sit down for morning tea at one of the local cafes (own expense). Back on the coach, head to Goolwa, an old paddle-steamer town near the mouth of the Murray River, and then pass by Port Elliot on Horsehoe Bay on your way to Victor Harbor. Total driving time from Strathalbyn to Victor Harbor is about one hour.

In Victor Harbor, you have approximately two hours of free time to explore the town on your own. Maybe take the horse-drawn tram across the causeway to Granite Island, or visit a local restaurant for lunch (all food, drinks and activities are at your own expense).

Back on your coach, start the 45-minute drive north to the town of McLaren Vale in the popular Australian wine region of the same name. Stop for 30 minutes in town, where you can visit a cellar door (tasting room) for a wine tasting, if you wish, or check out local attractions like Medlows Confectionary or the Almond Train (own expense).

Finish your day trip with the 1-hour drive from McLaren Vale back to Adelaide, passing through the picturesque coastal towns of Christies Beach, Port Noarlunga and Moana.

Upgrade Cruise Option 
During your time in Victor Habor you can choose to include a 45-minute scenic cruise to Seal Island passing through the Horse Tram route and historic Screwplie Jetty. Watch out for New Zealand Fur Seals and Australian Sea Lions at play, basking under the sun or even up close as they swim towards the boat. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife such as Bottlenose Dolphins, Cormorants and Petrels. We then cruise back to the Granite Island Causeway landing.

  • Great tour with excellant guide

  • A long Journey in the Bus, not a lot to see once we got there

  • Well organized and great commentary. Had a wonderful time.

  • An absolute fantastic day with an amazing driver , he seemed to know anything he was asked

  • We had a great trip,our driver Cheryl was very friendly and had a lot of local knowledge as we toured around.

  • Good tour and the bus driver was very informative. The only let down was not enough time at McLaren Vale.

  • Great tour. The driver gave good commentary pointing out places of interest. Would recommend it.

  • The driver / guide was informative, although I noticed that he had to ask passengers to reduce noise so that other passengers could hear the commentary.

    It was a pleasant enough day, although I got the impression that it was designed as a bus trip to get people around the coast so that they could walk around towns ie there was nothing organised at any stop, with people left to their own devices. Having said that, the highlight for me was definitely Victor Harbor, and the opportunity to walk out to Granite Island. A few people did this walk it was very windy but I noticed that most people seemed to spend the two hours inside restaurants, which seemed a bit of a waste.

    If I was doing the trip again, I would probably get a bus straight to Victor Harbor and spend the day exploring there.

  • Lovely day. Lots of information given about various points along the way. The stop in the wine region possibly could have been a bit longer. Victor Harbor - nice place and lunch was great.

  • Driver very good and informative, great tour. I wish in McLaren Vale we had the opportunity to visit at least one other winery and a little longer than the 30 minutes we had at Hardy's.
