Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island, South Australia
One of the most picturesque islands off the coast of mainland Australia is Kangaroo Island. Small, but with plenty to offer, here is an opportunity help this community recover and once again flourish after being ravaged by bushfires. Re-opened to travellers in August 2020, with green shoots beginning to blanket the landscape, Kangaroo Island is a real treat for lovers of food and nature. 

Wineries and local specialties

Barossa Valley, South Australia
Adelaide is one of the nine exceptional wine capitals of the world, with both the Barossa and McLaren Vale found on Adelaide’s doorstep. The Barossa is most famous for its Shiraz and its reputation for Rieslings is also gaining popularity. McLaren Vale’s warner climate means great Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. It is in McLaren Vale where you will enjoy a new Scenic Enrich experience at the biodiverse Gemtree Wines. 

Mt Gambier

During Oceans to Outback, explore Mt Gambier’s mysterious Blue Lake, the historic township of Penola, the Mary Mackillop Interpretive Centre, and the Woods Mackillop Schoolhouse.
