Why have your Hens in Adelaide?
A city with not just one or two, but 19 wine regions on its doorstep, provides plenty of opportunity for hens party fun. Wines from McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Barossa Valley, Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra and the Limestone Coast feature characteristics unique to each region, so we highly recommend trying them all. Of course, you’ll need something to pair with all that grape juice, and you’ll find an assortment of cafes, restaurants, chocolate shops, food tours and markets showcasing the spectacular local produce of the Adelaide Hills, Eyre Peninsula, Fleurieu Peninsula and the Limestone Coast. This truly is an idyllic hens party destination for the food and wine lover, and all of her friends. Home to countless natural attractions and beautiful beaches, you can work off the extra calories exploring Kangaroo Island, Flinders Ranges, Morialta Conservation Park and Mt Lofty Lookout, or swimming with sea lions at Port Lincoln.
Top Tips and Ideas
The Barossa Valley is tipped as the best of the best of Adelaide’s wine regions. Just 56 kilometres northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley has a warm climate famed for producing signature bold reds, namely Shiraz. In more recent years, the Barossa has received recognition for riesling and sémillon too, and you can sample all of these drops at the region’s cellar doors. All 80 of them! Of course, if you’re travelling to South Australia for the food and wine culture, we also recommend sampling everything else the south coast has to offer. That includes visiting the 70 cellar doors of McLaren Vale just a 40 minute drive from Adelaide, and tasting the exceptional whites of the Clare Valley. One unforgettable and fun way to experience this region is cycling the Riesling and Rattler trails that guide you through 35-kilometres of vineyards, cellar doors and undulating terrain.
