Discover Australia's Famous Wine Regions

From the legendary Barossa, to the Adelaide Hills, and Clare Valley, no culinary tour of Australia is complete without a jaunt through these amazing cellars. 

Clare Valley

Clare Valley

The Clare Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. It is best known for its Riesling wine, and is often called the home of Australian Riesling. Its Mediterranean-style climate is ideal for the production of quality Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon and Merlot grapes. The Clare Valley has more than 40 wineries, most of which are small and located along a 40 kilometre corridor between the towns of Auburn and Clare. Walk or cycle the Riesling Trail which connects many of the region's major attractions and cellar doors, or travel in style and explore the region by limousine.

Best Restaurants for Uniquely Australian Food

Some of the newest ingredients landing on plates at Australian restaurant tables are thousands of years old, as Australian chefs turn to their own backyard for inspiration. That backyard, mind you, stretches over 6.5 million square kilometres (2.5 million square miles), so they have a bit of ground to cover. As Australian Aboriginals have known for 40,000 years, this vast, dry country is home to countless wild, native plants, herbs, nuts, seeds and berries across the six climatic seasons recognised in Aboriginal culture. Visitors to Australia can now sample the results of this inspiration on tables that range from the finest restaurant in the land to an outback country pub. Here are just a few.
