Australia’s Best Wine Regions
With an increased number of people recognising that Australia’s food and wine experiences are one of its greatest assets, I am highlighting three of the most famous wine regions to help inspire your future travels Down Under. Cheers!
The Hunter Valley, New South Wales
Row after row of tended vines, stretching as far as the eye can see, is quite a sight. Then, things get even better as you indulge in fine regional wines and gourmet food in the many superb restaurants and cafés. Magnificent vineyards aside, the Hunter Valley has so much to explore and you can do so by car, bike or horse-drawn carriage.
Margaret River region, Western Australia
The southwest tip of Western Australia offers some of the state’s most varied and rewarding experiences. Trek through towering forests and beautiful valleys, spot whales year round, sample award-winning wines and delicious local produce or go surfing off the coast.
Barossa & Clare Valley, South Australia
Just one hour from Adelaide, dotted with picturesque villages, the Barossa is renowned for producing some of Australia’s finest wines. A little further away, the lesser-known Clare Valley has been likened to Tuscany, and you’ll find exquisite heritage towns, stylish cellar doors and numerous, delightful places to stay. Barossa is known to produce big bold shiraz red while Clare Valley has gained world recognition for its Riesling.
