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.

Spring Mystery Tour

Visit a great SA Community

[Itinerary]

We are off to a charming country town that is now relaxed, but used to be on one of the major freight routes in the SA. In fact, the goods that were carried through here were of high importance to our State’s economy. It is also the childhood home of a prominent media identity. The place we visit is volunteer run, in an historic building you once would have preferred not to visit! And who know where we will be having lunch today! Come along and enjoy a mysteriously good day!

Carrick Hill Christmas

Explore the renovated house

[Itinerary]

December heralds the festive season, and we’ve got a day to get you in the Christmas spirit. 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. Our traditional Christmas lunch is in the Adelaide Hills and of course, we stop at a local cherry farm for the opportunity to purchase supplies.

Delicious Mystery Tour

Fabulous flavours for fun with friends.

[Itinerary]

The area we’re travelling to is famous for friendship and helping each other, where enemies became friends. Our first visit is two venues for the price of one! One of the products they make here is a work of art, but all too tempting to eat. The other products have had much less effort put into them, and you’ll love them for that very reason. After lunch we visit a place that is definitely misnamed, but we don’t mind – the quality here is special. If you like things local, this shop will be right up your alley! It’s going to be a great fun and foody day!

Gilbert's of Strathalbyn

All roads lead to Strathalbyn.

[Itinerary]

It was 1901 when the Gilbert family first opened their business in High Street, Strathalbyn, on the site of the old Cobb and Co station. Today, the site remembers the 100 years of the Gilbert family business, and a lot more! A famous name in Strathalbyn for over a century, Gilbert’s manufactured Treblig bicycles and motorcycles, sold home appliances, cars and farm machinery. The Museum has some amazing vehicles is also home to the memorabilia from the famous flag waver at the Adelaide Grand Prix – Glen Dix. We enjoy a delicious two course lunch in Macclesfield and a scenic drive home.

Hills Bushfire Recovery

Support Hills businesses to recover

[Itinerary]

We’ve all seen and heard about the bushfires in the Adelaide Hills. With the recent rains the bush is beginning to regenerate. However, it’s a long, slow recovery for businesses in these areas. That’s why we decided it was important for us to head for the hills to assist. Every dollar we spend in the hills makes it easier for a business to keep running, and for staff to be employed. On this trip we are heading to four excellent hills businesses. Woodside Cheese Wrights, Melba’s Chocolate, lunch at a local hotel in Gumeracha and the Lobethal Bakery. Come along for a great day that makes a difference for others.
