Day Trip: Adelaide to Victor Harbor
Leave Adelaide via Main South Road. The freeway goes South after 1.30p Mon-Fri or before 12.30pm on Sat. When you are approaching McLaren Vale – take the turn into town and go to the information centre in this area. There are many restaurants and shops in the main street and also food trail maps available from the information centre.
Take the road to Willunga a lovely town which has many historic buildings and a well known food and local products market on Saturday morning. The next stops we suggest is Mt Compass. There is a trout farm nearby. Also Agon is situated just before Mt Compass and sells strawberries and seasonal berries, jams etc.
Wineries to see near Victor are Mt Jagged and Parri Estates, which has beautiful rural views and Alexandrina cheese tastings and dairy products, pick some up to take back to the apartment to accompany your wine.
