Australia Vineyards and Kangaroo Island
Discover tranquility and tradition in the splendid wine regions around Adelaide. Taste wines from big name best sellers to boutique wineries and savor local produce while meeting the wine makers and farmers. See the nineteenth century European influences in the churches, shops and homes in towns like Lyndoch, Angaston and Eden Valley. Kangaroo Island (known locally as KI) is arguably the best place in Australia to see the widest range of Australian native animals in their natural habitat. Sea-lions basking on white beaches, koalas dozing in loft eucalyptus, and kangaroos grazing on open fields paint the perfect picture of a Kangaroo Island experience.
