Here you will find the ruggedly beautiful Innes National Park which is a paradise for bushwalkers, surfers, birdwatchers and anglers alike; a fascinating history and some of the best fishing in South Australia.
North-east of Yorke Peninsula lies the picture-postcard Clare Valley region, renowned for its wine and pioneering heritage. Visit the picturesque townships of Auburn, Clare, Sevenhill and Mintaro or for a different perspective, climb onto a bike and cycle the Riesling Trail.
Lauded for its balanced Rieslings, cab savs and shiraz, the Clare Valley is a world-class wine growing region. With more than 50 wine-cellar doors between Auburn and Clare, a top sip is just a step away; but it’s not all cellar doors. Blessed with fertile soil, shielded by North Mount Lofty Ranges and subject to Yorke Peninsula winds, the temperate valley is prime farming land. You’ll find plenty of parkland within the historic, regional township of Clare, including the newly-established Gleeson Wetlands that passes a golf course and a mini rail at the Melrose Reserve.
East of the Riesling Trail is the unmissable Mintaro, a heritage-listed town exuding 19th Century charm. Tour the stately Georgian-style Martindale Mansion with black and white marble floors that lead to a grand staircase, then find your way at the Mintaro Maze. Enjoying elevations and growing conditions similar to the valley, Mintaro has its fair share of award-winning cellar doors.
Journeying east beyond Mintaro past the Farrell Flats on the Bald Hills Range you’ll find Burra, another heritage-listed town. It’s ancient country here, and you can follow 65,000-year-old footsteps of a giant marsupial, the diprotodon, in the Landscapes of Change interpretive walking trail.
