This historic spot will have your taste buds dancing
Old modes of transport are usually used as tiny museums, landmarks and even as play equipment in children's playgrounds, however in the popular wine region of McLaren Vale, train carriages are used to eat almonds and sell local produce.

1900's carriage full of almonds!


The Almond Train, is located on McLaren Vale's main road. The carriage was built in Islington in the early 1900s and serviced the Adelaide to Willunga line (now this railway line is used as a walking and cycling path) travelling around 2 million miles during its service.

The carriage was slightly transformed inside and is now a cute tiny shop with a warm feel and a rich history.

Almonds and much more.


The Almond Train stocks some of the best regional produce, and as the name suggests they sell almonds, but not just plain ordinary ones, this shop is almond haven, stocking South Australia's largest almond range - caramelised, spiced, salted, raw, smoked, chocolate coated, garlic flavoured . just to name a few of their varieties! With daily tastings, you can sample the product and know exactly what you are buying.

You can also find souvenirs, handcrafts, locally made beauty products, honey, spices, olive oil, dukkah, gift packs, old fashioned lollies, chutneys, sauces and jams, all made with equal amounts of quality and love from McLaren Vale's local businesses.

This is a one stop shop for anyone wanting to buy an original gift whilst supporting South Australian brands. Sample and take home some of the region's harvest and immerse yourself in the history of those four walls as you delight your taste buds with some crunchy sweet almonds.

The Almond Train is open daily from 10 am to 4.30 pm.
