Australia – New experiences to travel in wine country

Globally recognised as a premium wine producing country,  Australia’s innovative experiences are reinventing what it means to travel in wine country. 

At Glenarty Road, in Western Australia’s Margaret River, recycled wooden bars are positioned throughout the vines, creating a roaming wine tasting where you’re encouraged to pluck and chew grapes from the source.

Further up the road, a private tasting of museum wines dating back to the 1980s – in a secret cellar door – is an unparalleled experience that Gralyn Estate started offering.

And, in one of the country’s oldest wine regions, the Riesling-rich Clare Valley in South Australia, the pack-free guided three day walk with Life’s an Adventure takes travellers between leafy wineries and restaurants.

The Australian sense of playfulness is on show at Barrel View in Queensland, with its row of private stays that resemble giant wine barrels – a honeymoon suite with secluded outdoor spa is set to open.
