Clare Valley Adventure and Outdoors
You set the pace
No matter what pace you set on your Clare Valley holiday, you’ll find something to suit you.
From gentle walking trails to high octane laps in a V8 racing car at Mallala, it will end in a great night’s sleep.
Trails of all lengths crisscross the Clare Valley. They’ll take you past the vineyards and wineries scattered between each town and village. There are trails for cyclists, walkers, wheelchairs and pushers.
Take your pick of walking trails
There’s the easy gradient and compacted gravel of the Riesling and Rattler Trails. Experience the Heysen Trail’s ruggedness or try one of the “looped” walks that run off the major trails. Walk through Bundaleer Forest on the Heysen Trail.
Many walking trails offer a self-discovery experience. Nature walks through Red Banks Conservation Park and Spring Gully Conservation Park will take you to ancient fossil beds and stunning native flowers.
Cyclists, young and old, will love the Riesling and Rattler Trails. There’s also the Kidman Trail which takes you on a journey of the life of the famous pastoralist Sir Sidney Kidman.
Mountain bike riders will relish the Mawson Trail. This 800 kilometre (500 mile) trail bumps its way through the Clare Valley, as it stretches from Adelaide to the Flinders Ranges.
Something a little slower
Golfers. Tee off amongst the eucalyptus trees in Burra or meander around the fairways in Balaklava, Farrell Flat and Clare. Elevated greens and water hazards will test your skills.
The Clare Valley, it’s well above par for adventures outdoors.
