Staying overnight at a Melbourne airport hotel, I took an early flight to Adelaide. From there I drove directly to Lyndoch, the Southwest End of Barossa Valley, the most famous wine region in Australia. I mainly just did a scenic drive through the valley, with short stops at the Yaldara Estate winery in Lyndoch, Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre in Rowland Flat, and Mengler’s Hill Lookout in Bethany. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing harvesting season, there was no suitable winery tour and in the morning I was not in the mood for a wine¬†tasting, so I kept my visit to this nice valley rather short and moved on to my second target from Adelaide, Flinders Ranges, thereby crossing a second Australian wine region, Clare Valley.
