It is really no surprise that the venue we are visiting is located where it is – it’s all in the name, in more ways than one! However, that it is not what this location is best known for. That particular item does not share the bright colours which our venue is known for, but it still is quite beautiful in its own way. Stay alert, you do need to be on the look out, there could be a surprise waiting around the corner! Lunch is at an equally intriguing venue, with past stories of a coroner, a morgue, fixing hair and checking teeth, the latter two on live bodies though!
Open to the public in 1987, Old Tailem Town has grown to house over 100 historic buildings in 15 streets! The dream of Peter Squires on a property inherited from his grandfather, Tailem Town preserves history and shows what life was like for South Australian Settlers from the mid 1800’s. There is an old church which dates back to the 1900’s, a school and village town hall from the 1880’s, a hotel, many stores and houses, plus a variety of vehicles on display. We will continue into Tailem Bend to enjoy our two course meal at the Riverside Hotel.
We’ve planned a day that gives us a wonderful time, plus makes a difference for others at the same time. In the spirit of Christmas, we will be collecting items for Foodbank, who provide charity food relief for struggling SA families. We will enjoy Christmas lunch at the Woodside Hotel in the picturesque Adelaide Hills. As has become tradition, we will visit a cherry farm in the afternoon for the opportunity to purchase top quality, freshly picked cherries.
There’s no doubt that in Australia we celebrate Christmas in the wrong season! It’s a meal that is just made for colder weather! So this month we’re bringing Christmas to Australia’s winter! Our first stop is in Hahndorf at the Sanctuary Gallery, where artist Amanda Tuohy loves capturing the beauty and essence of our unique Australian wildlife in her art. Then it is off to the Bridgewater Inn for a delicious traditional Christmas lunch.
Everyone loves a good mystery, and on our journey today we descend into a cellar of secrets, while still keeping a lookout for the present of course! Leaving behind a dark and dirty history, our venue is shepherding in a new era and the future looks bigger
and brighter…if that is possible! So it’s full steam ahead as our August adventure awaits! Join us on board to uncover the mystery.
The Barossa is well known for its quality wines, but it is also developing a reputation for great food and gourmet produce. Today we visit an old favourite, Maggie Beers Farm Shop, that has undergone some transformations. We journey to Angaston to stop at Gully Gardens and after lunch dessert will be enjoyed at the Barossa Valley Ice Cream Company. Celebrate Spring and join us on this tasty tour through the Barossa.
Do we have a treat for you!!We’re taking our own hunt for special Easter treats and you’re guaranteed to find some delicious delights to bring home! We head to the Hills in search of goodies and supporting SA businesses such as the Bean and Bikkie Co, Melbas and a local bakery. Lunch is at the Woodside Hotel and we enjoy a drive through the countryside where we may see the leaves starting to take on the shades of autumn…it’s always a picturesque time in the Hills.
Come along on a fun day out, while raising money for the important work of the Cancer Council! Our Biggest Morning Tea will be hosted by the wonderful volunteers at the Clay Cup Café. We enjoy delicious treats with friends – all the more enjoyable knowing we are raising money for an important cause. Endeavour Tours will also be making a donation to the Cancer Council for every person who travels.
Winding roads lead out of town, past farms and hills, up and down. In a river valley, flat and wide, is where you’ll go on this mystery ride.
In this place, we lose track of time, as nature and history intertwine. A legacy etched in the iron and beams, of a family’s triumph in fulfilling their dreams.
See if you can uncover the mystery…
With the high water flows through-out the Murray-Darling basin, this is a spectacular time to see the river. As the floodwaters descend to the river’s-end, this exceptional flow creates a boon for birds and wildlife. We partner with Spirit Australia to see the Murray Mouth during this exceptional event. We cruise down stream from Goolwa, meander along the waterways of the iconic Coorong and following the last kilometres of the mighty River to the mouth and its opening to the Southern Ocean.
We know how much our passengers enjoy a good mystery and this February tour is sure to keep you guessing. We’ll start our journey in the north, not near the water as some people thought. You might sit shotgun on this wild ride, but you can’t go too fast while inside. And for you seekers of more social pursuits, you’ll hear of singing, dancing and old footy boots. Before things turn chillier altogether and I’m not talking about this unseasonal weather!
Perched on a hill on a rural property on the outskirts of Murray Bridge is a set of old stone buildings from yesteryear. Surrounded by Mallee scrub, it is not hard to see why this place is called Serenity Nursery. This nursery is much more than just an extensive range of plants, it also houses a collection of ‘one-of-a-kind’ garden adornments, pots, gifts, homewares and much more. From here we continue to the Bridgeport Hotel to see the amazing transformation.
