Having travelled extensively ‘down under’, here are some of our favourite places to stop off for the best boutique food and wine in the rich pickings of South Australia.

Kangaroo Island features many of Australia’s attractions on a single large island off Adelaide, but it also has a few additional peculiarities such as sea lions, fur seals and the ‘Remarkable Rocks’ formation. An understatement of colossal dimensions…
Mandy & Paul Brown run a comfortable lodge with great views of Emu Bay on Kangaroo Island. Their cooking is excellent and if you want to learn a thing or two on cricket, here’s the place! (Without cricket knowledge you won’t understand the first ten pages of Australian newspapers. As of the eleventh page you need knowledge of Australian rules football…)
Seagulls may well be known to everybody and his dog, but sometimes they are still pretty spectacular…
‘Henry & Rose’ is an adorable café and restaurant in Keith situated on the Dukes highway between the Grampians and Adelaide in Southern Australia. You won’t regret a little break in Henry & Rose’s backyard or in the comfortable restaurant / café.
One of regional Victoria’s leading outdoor activity centers, the Grampians National Park, offers bush walking, mountain biking and rock climbing for the energetic hiker and leisurely walks to the wanderer.
Boutique style living at its best! Meringa Springs offers intimate accomodation in a luxurious lodge setup in Wartook in the Grampians. High ceilings, fire-places, rich timber finishes, stylish décor and friendly hosts with a Swiss background add up to an unforgettable stay.
We stayed at Oscar’s at the Waterfront, a recommendable boutique hotel by the waterfront.
The Great Ocean Road in Victoria, South Australia, is one of the world’s most scenic drives with a stunning coastline. The road winds along cliff tops offering breathtaking panoramic views.
