Spring Mystery Tour

Come along and be confused with us!

[Itinerary]

Spring has sprung and we are looking to bring confusion to your day! Today we’re visiting a little town that’s a little off the beaten track. The venue we’re visiting might seem completely out of context – but depending on how you look at it, you could also say that it is entirely appropriate. Our lunch today is in a different town, one where they must like a drink! This afternoon we explore the countryside admiring lots of fresh, green growth. Come with us for a fabulous day of fun!

Wyndbourne Park

A gorgeous Adelaide Hills garden.

[Itinerary]

It’s the perfect time of year for gardens and the beautiful Adelaide Hills. Located on a back road in a magnificent spot in Forest Range is the delightful Wyndbourne Park. For nearly forty years the owners have been creating and improving their very special garden. We explore the Adelaide Hills this morning and make our way to Gumeracha for a slightly earlier lunch, but just main course! In the afternoon we’re off to the garden to enjoy coffee and cake for dessert in beautiful surrounds. It’s going to be a fabulous day!

A Giving Christmas

Have a great day and help others too

[Itinerary]

Christmas is a special time of year and with many people around the world less fortunate than us, we’ve planned a day that gives us a wonderful time, plus also  makes a difference for others. In the spirit of Christmas, we are donating $5 to the Hutt Street Centre for every customer who travels on this day tour and we are also collecting long-life food items. We are supporting local businesses in the Adelaide Hills and enjoy a traditional Christmas-style feast at a venue we know well: Auchendarroch House. And as has become tradition, we stop at a cherry farm in the afternoon.

Christmas in July

Celebrate when the weather suits.

[Itinerary]

There’s no doubt that in Australia we celebrate Christmas in the wrong season! After all, the idea of having a hot Christmas feast when it’s 40 degrees outside is slightly ridiculous. So this month we’re bringing Christmas to Australia’s winter! We make our way to the quaint town of Willunga, enjoy a delicious Christmas feast in the warm, before an afternoon of touring. Come with us today as we head off for a festive July.

Spring Mystery Tour

A day of discoveries and surprises

[Itinerary]

We love finding new and different places to visit and it’s even better when we get to confuse everyone as well! The town we’re visiting is famous for how exciting it can be, but only on rare occasions. The place we visit is very old, but has a new use, producing something you see every day! It’s a beautiful place to wander. Lunch is not far away, in a location whose beginning was rooted in great wealth, but it never lived up to the hype.

A Birdie Told Me

Fun on the Fleurieu!

[Itinerary]

Today we head south through rolling hills to Normanville, where there is a special place called ‘A Birdie Told Me’ . This store is a collective of art pieces and craft work from local artisans, over 80 of them in fact!! After our visit we simply cross the road for a delicious lunch at the Normanville Hotel before taking the back roads to explore the magnificent scenery that the Fleurieu offers. We look forward to you joining us to make the most of the autumn weather!

As part of the fundraising Endeavour Tours is donating $5 for every person travelling and if you would like to join in the spirit of the day, feel free to bring along a donation that we can pass on.

Winter Mystery Tour

Guess where we’re going…

[Itinerary]

We are heading to a place where the community has at times been controversial, and yet their heritage is a very strong part of SA’s history. They are currently going through some dramatic cutbacks, and it’s likely that we’ll see the impact of this as we travel. Our visit this morning is to another industry that has experienced massive change – almost to the point of extinction. Mind you, it’s an industry that knows all about hard knocks. Lunch is just down the street and our afternoon might take us anywhere, as long as we end up back home!

Birthday Mystery Surprise

Endeavour Tours is turning 20!

[Itinerary]

Come and celebrate with us as we the start the year with a Birthday mystery. We will visit something that is truly South Australian – just like Endeavour Tours…but perhaps a little older. How fitting that it’s located in one of our state’s shining stars. Lunch will be at a venue with a history and a passion for the wonderful produce of South Australia. You’ll enjoy the charming location, particularly in the company of good friends. 2021 marks our year of celebration, so come and enjoy our mysteriously good day out!

Hindmarsh Island

Explore the island at the end of the Murray.

[Itinerary]

Hindmarsh Island became (in)famous during the initial development of the marina with the proposal of a bridge creating much controversy. Today, the Island has its bridge, and also the largest inland marina in the southern hemisphere. We tour around the marina development, see some of the older residential areas, as well as visiting the viewing point for the mouth of the Murray. It’s going to be a fun day visiting locations we don’t get to very often, so come along for a great day out.

Warrawong Sanctuary

Famous Hills sanctuary has returned.

[Itinerary]

Warrawong Sanctuary was founded in 1969 by well-known and controversial environmentalist Dr John Wamsley. After a bumpy ride, which resulted in the sites closure in 2013, Warrawong now has new owners and is open again! As part of our visit we are participating in a wildlife show, plus enjoy lunch in their restaurant, with more time to explore in the afternoon. It’s wonderful to see this very special place of peace and tranquillity being used again to protect animals. Come with us for a fabulous day.
