Gourmet Greenock – Barossa Valley

2 Comments

As a way to support South Australian Tourism and businesses, the state’s tourism authority has been gifting ‘Great State Vouchers’ which enable people to have an ‘experience’ or get accommodation at a very reduced price to boost the economy in these sectors. One of these vouchers I was able to use recently to book a wine and cheese flight at a Barossa winery.

There were a number of establishments to choose from, and I chose this particular winery with the thought of also discovering a different part of the Barossa Valley that I wasn’t too familiar with.  The larger towns of Tanunda and Nuriootpa are probably the busier and more well-known towns and they have very good caravan parks and loads of things to do in those centres.

The Stuart Highway is an epic drive from one end of Australia to the other. From south to north it’s full of wow moments and surprising sights. Here are just a few.

Everything Natural on a Grand Scale

The differing landscapes take your breath away. The things you don’t see every day but are so grand in scale that you can’t help but be impressed. For instance at Port Augusta there is a huge wind farm popping up on the edge of the highway which will have 50 wind turbines as part of a solar-wind hybrid plant and renewable energy project.

There’s a bright and brilliant new mural to look for in Goolwa when you’re next visiting the Fleurieu Peninsula. As you drive into town on Alexandrina Road you’ll find Kessell Street on the right and the Ibis Siding Garden Centre on the corner. Turning into Kessell Street, the eye catching mural featuring a blue wren, bees and flowers, fills the wall of the garden centre.

Fishing SA Magazine – Featuring Moonta Bay Yorke Peninsula

I’m happy to report that I’ve added another magazine title, to the list of publications that I’ve contributed to.  In the April / May edition of Fishing SA magazine, a South Australian sport fishing magazine which features all things fishing, camping, boating and outdoors, you will find my story on fishing at Moonta Bay on Yorke Peninsula. This is one of our favourite fishing destinations for the variety you can catch and because it’s a spot that is very safe for fishing in the tinnie.
