The rolling country side of the Clare Valley is a patchwork of vineyards, farming land and quaint villages which collectively produces outstanding wines, excellent accommodation and good honest food. 

Favoured by wine lovers, the Clare Valley is a place made for romance with its collection of beautiful B&Bs, the Riesling Trail for strolling or cycling, gourmet delights and some of Australia's best wineries.

Located just one and a half hours drive north of Adelaide the Clare Valley is an idyllic setting for country racing with people travelling from far and wide to attend its annual Easter Races.
