Flinders and Freycinet Lookout

Intersection of Farrel and Elliot Street, Eyre Peninsula,
Whyalla, South Australia 5600

In 1802 Matthew Flinders was the first European to navigate and chart this unknown coast of South Australia, solving the centuries old mystery as to whether Australia was one continent or two. Ten months later, in January 1803, Louis-Claude de Freycinet navigated and charted the isolated coast for the Baudin expedition. He and his crew spent a night at sea, off what was to become Whyalla, and were impressed by the local scenery. In September 2001, as part of the Encounter 2002 project to recognise French exploration, the two explorers were commemorated at the lookout by contemporary sculptures and the area was renamed the Flinders and Freycinet Lookout. The lookout offers magnificent views of the upper Spencer Gulf, Southern Flinders Ranges and Middleback Range in the west.

Bicheno, Tasmania 7215

Freycinet Vineyard is a family-run vineyard and winery overlooking Tasmania's famed Freycinet National Park. Established in 1980 by Geoff and Susie Bull, the east coast site was selected for its ideal microclimate - long sunshine hours and lean soils that encourage vines to focus on fruit not foliage.

Tight-grain French oak casks are used and minimal intervention ensures the wines retain their maximum colour and flavour. You can sample some of the vineyard's handcrafted wines, including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling/Schonburger, cabernet sauvignon and the Rodenti sparkling, against the spectacular backdrop of the Freycinet Peninsula. The vineyard is open to the public for tastings seven days a week, 364 days a year. There are no tours of the vineyard.

Darlington Vineyard is a producer of fine cool-climate wines on Tasmania's east coast. The vineyard is located at Orford, an hour's drive north of Hobart (81 kilometres / 50 miles). Darlington Vineyard has 1.5 hectares of vines overlooking the historic Darlington settlement on Maria Island. Darlington's range of light, delicate wines includes Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling. You can visit the vineyard each day. Taste wines from the Darlington Range and choose something to add to your own cellar. Tasmania's cool climate sets it apart from the rest of Australia as a prime wine-growing region and the state has over 200 vineyards, producing more than 6,500 tonnes of grapes per year. The Freycinet region is renowned for having the greatest hours of sunlight in Tasmania, and the area's long, sunny autumns create the perfect climate for growing intensely-flavoured Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Gewürtztraminer and Riesling grapes.
