Cheese and wine and all things fine

* * Getting There * *
The most direct route from Adelaide to Clare Valley is to follow Port Wakefield Road or the Northern Connector onto the Northern Expressway, and then turn left onto Horrocks Highway (Main North Road) just after the bypass to Gawler. There are numerous ways to see the valley: self-drive, bicycle or walk along the Riesling Trail, or organise a guided tour/bus with a local tour operator.

Visit the Clare Valley Tourism website for links to all of these locations, or look them up online for the latest information and full menus at some locations.
