Kangaroo Island & Barossa Trip - Apr 2011 - Days 7-10

The remainder of the trip was spent in the Barrossa Valley.

After a morning ferry trip and a visit to to some family in Adelaide we arrived that evening in Tanunda which was our base for the next 3 full days.

Tununda Township
We stayed at the Tununda Caravan and Tourist Park which was a nice bit of luxury compared to Kangaroo Island and obviously with less privacy.

We spent some of the time visiting a few of the local wineries including Grant Burge, Two Hands
Kellermeister, Langmeil and Jacobs Creek.

The Barrossa Valley
 We also visited the Lyndoch Lavender Farm

And took a ride in a hot air balloon which was a real treat.

We loved the Barrossa and will most likely go back for another visit. Great place to relax and unwind.

Kangaroo Island & Barossa Trip - Apr 2011 - Day 6

I need to finish the posts for this trip. I've been carried away planning for next year's trip.

So back on the last trip.

Day 6 was our last full day on the island so we cramped a few things in, including:

Clifford's Honey Farm, Eucalyptus Distillery and Prospect Hill (below):

Then went via Charing Cross Road

To see Cape Willoughby Lighthouse and Lashmar Lagoon:

Staying the night at Antechamber Bay - We went to the south side of the river where it was a very quiet, secluded camping spot. (albeit with no facilities).

2013 Trip Dates and Map

Slight change of plans.

We've decide to only include the top section of the CSR in the trip and to join the track from the east via Gary Jct Road. The plan is to get there in time for the May 10, 2013 Solar Eclipse.

Here is the trip map.
