McLaren Vale

40 kilometres from Adelaide  

Only 45 minutes south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale may be the Fleurieu Peninsula’s most well-known tourist attraction – thanks to the globally recognised and celebrated wines produced here since the late 1800s. A visit to McLaren Vale will only reinforce its stellar reputation as a wine and food-lovers paradise, offering stunning vineyard views at every turn.  

A trip to Mclaren Vale would be incomplete without visiting the d’Arenberg Cube – a modern architectural feat towering five storeys above the historic d’Arenberg vines and housing premium wine tasting, dining, and artistic experiences. 

Home to more than 80 vineyards, there are more picturesque cellar doors and restaurants in McLaren Vale than any visitor could hope to experience. With an abundance of charming B&Bs and other accommodation options, it’s the perfect location to stay at the heart of the Fleurieu Peninsula. Wineries aside, this vibrant regional township is sure to charm you with its shopping, spa and café offering.  

A shared walking and cycling trail between McLaren Vale and neighbouring Willunga offers visitors a unique way to relax and enjoy the scenery. If you become bored of the native gums, rolling green hills and vineyards (unlikely!), rest assured the beautiful mid-coast beaches are a mere 10 minutes drive away.
