Today there are herds of feral goats in most pastoral areas of the state.There is a growing interest in grazing goats in the agricultural areas.

Broken Hill. The unofficial capital of the NSW Outback, the city of Broken Hill has a rich history, vibrant artistic community and plenty of colourful characters. Discover amazing galleries, vast sculptures, cool cafes, palatial federation heritage and moving mining landmarks in Australia’s first heritage-listed city.

Broken Hill, historically considered one of Australia’s boomtowns, has been referred to as “The Silver City” with over 20,000 tons of silver being mined.

Broken Hill has prominent parks and garden displays and offers a number of attractions, such as the Living Desert Sculptures. The town has a high potential for solar power, given its extensive hours of sunshine. The Broken Hill Solar Plant, which was completed in 2015, is one of the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.
Close to the CBD are some amazing accommodation options, we encourage the Dessert Sands with its luxurious Bedrooms and The Astra restaurant for some exceptional meals and desserts.

A couple of hours drive will take you to Peterborough.
Peterborough’s Steamtown Musseum was once a vast rail operation where over 100 steam locomotives passed through each day before heading to all corners of Australia. In the early 1900 Peterborough was the rail junction between Adelaide,  Alice Springs and Broken Hill.

Today, that legacy is preserved – and you’re invited to experience the museum for yourself.

The full moon rises while the sun sets simultaneously at the ancient sandstone rock formations known as the Walls of China at Mungo National Park, also near by.            

From Peterborough, you can take a detour to Wilpena Pound.  This extraordinary landscape is 800 million years old and has been home to Adnyamathanha people for tens of thousands of years. Although from the outside the Pound appears as a single range of mountains, it is actually two: one on the western edge, and one on the eastern, joined by the long Rawnsley’s Bluff at the south. The Pound is a very popular area for bushwalking, interesting to people of all levels of experience. The Pound traverses some of the most beautiful country in the Flinders Ranges.


There are so many things to see, do and taste in the Clare Valley. You’ll find more than 50 cellar doors between the towns of Auburn and Clare, along a stunning 40km corridor. Five-star wineries are scattered throughout the Clare Valley; its signature wine, Riesling, is among the world’s best.  We recommend staying at the Clare Valley Country Club for exceptional service and views.

For those planning this trip around September, the Bay to Birdwood run happens annually on the last week of September. It is one of the world’s great historic motoring events. First held in 1980 the event has become a fixture on the South Australian events calendar. It is a mass-participatory citizen-collector historic motoring event that draws participants from far and wide and regularly attracts thousands of spectators to line the route and attend the start and finish events.

Adelaide is South Australia’s cosmopolitan coastal capital. Its ring of parkland on the River Torrens is home to renowned museums such as the Art Gallery of South Australia. The city’s Adelaide Festival is an annual international arts gathering with spin-offs including fringe and film events. There are so many enjoyable places to visit, like Victoria Square home to many of the city’s most famous landmarks, including the St. Francis Xavier Cathedral.

Adelaide Zoo

The city’s beautiful zoo on the River Torrens is home to around 1800 native and exotic creatures, including Australia’s only giant pandas, Wang Wang and Funi!

Haigh’s Chocolate Factory

Don’t expect snozzberries and Oompa Loompas, but Haigh’s HQ offers chocoholics an insight into the creation of Australia’s most luxurious confectionary. The best part? It’s free!

Victor Harbour  has something to enthral every member of the family. Just over an hour from Adelaide by car, the old-world charm of this destination is realms away from the hustle and bustle of big city living. Get acquainted with the local sea life, meander along the coastal walkways, and ride some of Australia’s unique modes of transport!

Other suggestions in this area are a swim with the Ferraris of the sea! Slip on a wet suit and dive in to meet these turbo-charged tuna as they dart through the water in search of food.  Located just a short distance from Granite Island by boat, Oceanic Victor.
When you get back to the mainland, follow the tram tracks past the Tram Barn to the South Australian Whale Centre. It’s housed in a heritage railway shed.

Victor Harbour beaches are exceptionally beautiful, take time to enjoy their beauty and also drop in at Klaus’s German Hot Dog stand, there every weekend.

Time to Explore Adelaide Hills, visit  Hahndorf, SA’s oldest German settlement.

You won’t be able to go past the bakery without stoping in!

This area also has some amazing walks to explore.

The Whispering Wall is in fact the retaining wall of the Barossa Reservoir. Built between 1899 and 1903, the dam was a revolutionary engineering feat for its day and attracted attention from all over the world.

But what draws visitors to the Whispering Wall is its unique acoustic effects: words whispered at one side can be clearly heard at the other, more than 100 metres away. Children in particular love visiting the wall and testing its abilities.

Besides trying out the Whispering Wall, visitors can also learn about the history of the construction of the dam, take in the scenery of the water reserve and enjoy the colours and sounds of the peaceful bush setting.

Adelaide Hills will leave you wanting to come back.
The hills are world-renowned for the quality of the region’s wines, but book a day trip as much for the spectacular landscape and historic towns as the tasty local tipple!

The National Motor Museum is an automobile museum in the Adelaide Hills in the township of Birdwood. Established in 1964 and opened to the public soon afterwards, it is Australia’s largest motor museum, with close to 400 vehicles on display.

Nestled in the foothills of Adelaide is the home of the famous Penfolds Winery.
On the city’s doorstep, the cooler climate of the Adelaide Hills is ideal for cultivating most of Penfolds whites and pinots. The combination of high altitude and cool climate gives the wines their contemporary and distinctive profile. Our Adelaide Hills vineyards contribute fruit to our award-winning Reserve Bin A Chardonnay, St Henri Shiraz and Cellar Reserve range.

For the return trip from Adelaide, you can choose to return via Broken Hill or Renmark Hay route.
