New Beerenberg Experience

Jam packed and just open.

[Itinerary]

Wednesday 20th, Thursday 21st or Friday 22nd April

One of SA’s most famous strawberry growing families is the Paech family at Beerenberg Farm. We’ve often visited here for their amazing range of scrumptious jams and sauces, but they have just opened something brand new – their Beerenberg Experience. As part of their fabulous new visitor centre, we can learn about the history of the Beerenberg Farm and enjoy a delicious morning tea in their new café. And of course, you can always purchase something to take home! Lunch is at Woodside before we head off the beaten track on the gorgeous back roads of the hills.

Magnificent May Mystery

Visit a great SA community

[Itinerary]

Wednesday 11th, Thursday 12th or Friday 13th May

We visit a charming, relaxed country town that was once a major freight route in SA. The goods that passed through here were of great importance to the South Australian economy to the South Australian economy. Did I just repeat myself? Well, it’s not surprising – it’s that kind of town! It’s also a town near where a prominent media identity grew up – someone who is known for their ability to talk. We love supporting local communities, and we’re doing that again today! Come along and enjoy a mysteriously good day!

Music and Vines

The wonderful rebirth of our musical heritage.

[Itinerary]

Wednesday 15th, Thursday 16th or Friday 17th June

Did you know that there is a part of the Adelaide Town Hall in the Barossa? The Hill & Son pipe organ was built in England in the 1870s by Hill & Son. After languishing in storage for several years, the organ was moved to Tanunda and is now fully restored. Today we hear this amazing musical instrument and enjoy lunch in Angaston before making our way through the beautiful Adelaide Hills. It’s going to be a great day – don’t miss out!

Boat Loads of Murals

January Day Tours cancelled. Our apologies.

Given the recent restrictions placed on venues by the Government due to the rising number of COVID cases in SA, we are unable to offer our January day tour. Both the ‘City of Adelaide’ clipper ship and our planned lunch venue, are unable to cater to our group needs at this stage. We are disappointed that we have to cancel our tour, but reassure our customers that we are expecting to resume day tours in February and will make plans to revisit the clipper ship on another occasion.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

St Andrews Restoration

Support our heritage on a great day out.

[Itinerary]

In the beautiful town of Strathalbyn, few buildings are as photographed or as well known as St Andrews Church. This magnificent old stone building is on the National Trust heritage list, with the first section built in 1848 and various additions made, as needed through to 1869. Time and weather have had their impact however and now a massive restoration project is underway. We visit for a guided tour and morning tea, before travelling to Meadows where we enjoy a delicious two course lunch. In the afternoon we are looking forward to taking you down some back roads that you may not have travelled before!

This afternoon we explore the countryside admiring lots of fresh, green growth. Come with us for a fabulous day of fun!

Christmas in July

Celebrate when the weather suits.

[Itinerary]

Wednesday 14th, Thursday 15th or Friday 16th July

There’s no doubt that in Australia we celebrate Christmas in the wrong season!
