Discover Victor Harbor, the quaint wine-making region and sleepy coastal town in South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula. Spend a full day exploring the seaside resort and the historic paddle-steamer port of Goolwa, where Australia’s longest river meets the sea.
After escaping the city buzz, climb the Mt. Lofty Ranges for spectacular views of Adelaide, from Glenelg to Gulf St. Vincent. Stop by at the historic town of Strathalbyn, which was connected to Goolwa by broad-gauge horse tram in 1869. Next, marvel at the sight of Goolwa's port, where the Murray River, the longest river in the nation, meets the lakes and sea.
Continue your tour at the magnificent seaside town of Port Elliott on the stunning Horseshoe Bay. While here, visit The Bluff on Encounter Bay. This rocky outcrop of granite originated from the earth’s magma about 500 million years ago.
Afterward, head into the McLaren Vale wine region, located among beautiful, undulating hills sweeping down to pristine beaches. Wander around its vineyards, old stone wineries, and orchards, and taste some of the finest local wines. Before your return trip to the city, sample some of Medlow's confectioneies and The Almond Train's produce.
