A Day in The Clare

Much more than a wine tour, this fully-guided Clare adventure also celebrates the rich and vibrant history of the Valley. Over rolling hills and picturesque plains, to quaint townships and important landmarks, this is a day of discovery you’ll never forget.

And the Clare Valley’s wonderful wines will be a constant companion.


Burra n Bungaree Discovered 

Immerse yourself in the rich history of the Mid-North with visits to the fascinating State Heritage Town of Burra and historic Bungaree Station.

A fully narrated tour that takes in landmarks both significant and quirky and invites you to unlock Burra’s secrets with the town’s unique passport key.

A trip to Clare isn’t quite complete without this highly-educational and rewarding brush with yesteryear.
