Welcome to the Southern wine region.


Located at the very entrance of McLaren Vale's Main Road, this spot is hard to miss, but with so many great wineries, cellar doors, touristic attractions and restaurants, it can be confusing trying to decide where to go or what to do! Which is why the local council, created this visitor centre. Here you will have access to endless pamphlets, local magazines and maps to help you find your way and their super friendly and knowledgeable staff can also assist with tips, current events, accommodation bookings and directions.
