Carrick Hill

Experience the newly renovated house.

[Itinerary]

Thursday 28th or Friday 29th January

We visit the iconic Carrick Hill, where renovations have just been completed. It is one of the few period homes in Australia to survive with its original contents almost completely intact and its grounds undiminished. With the inclusion of a lift, it makes this spectacular home more accessible to explore. Our lunch is in the Adelaide Hills and there will be time to browse the main street before heading for home.

Mystery Day Tour

Where will we end up today?

[Itinerary]

Tuesday 16th or Wednesday 24th February

We are travelling to a historic town. It was here that one of the major transport industries of Australia began – and in a location that makes no sense whatsoever! But the person who created it had a vision, and it was one that came true. Our lunch is in a place that sounds like it’s named after a tree, but it isn’t. After our meal we pop in to a local place that you’ll love if you like beautiful things. Then it’s off through the backroads towards home.

Murray River Cruise

Experience the wonderful bird life of the Murray.

[Itinerary]

Thursday 18th or Friday 19th March

There’s nothing better than cruising the river on a sunny autumn day, especially with the magnificent scenery and birdlife the Murray offers. We’re heading to the river town of Mannum where we enjoy lunch at the Pretoria Hotel, before getting out on the river for a 90 minute cruise with Four Knots Cruises.  A highlight will be seeing Whistling Kites and Black Kites swooping down to be fed from the boat!

Mystery Tour

Spring Surprises

[Itinerary]

Thursday 15th or Friday 30th October

This is a slightly longer day, but we think you’ll like it! Morning tea is in a place that should be a small village, but has grown a great deal. Then we travel through gorgeous countryside to a place which was spelled incorrectly, in a region that was spelled incorrectly. Our delicious lunch is at a venue whose namesake existed before South Australia did! Be sure to join us to uncover the mystery.
