    This place is amazing! The building dates back to the 19th century and had a lot of old architecture and beautiful designs. We spent a whole day shopping and looking around, even finding the, er, "Mall's Balls". With over 700 stores, there is something for everyone and certainly worth the drain on your wallet.

    We did two activities here, a vineyard tour and our own bike around with bikes hired from the visitor centre. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we got to taste seven wines and learn about the "sensory evaluation process". I know everyone has different tastes, but you have to try the moscato.
    We took the Jack Bobridge Bike Trail the next day, it was great riding through the vineyards at our own pace. A peaceful experience.

    Aldinga Scrub Reserve is a coastal reserve with rare Flora and plenty of Fauna

    These guys are amazing. They specialise in small growers and winemakers of the McLaren Vale wine region. You are driven around in luxury Mercedes Benz Viano vehicles with up to 7 passengers per vehicle. They can also arrange transfers from Adelaide.

    Free to enter and view the nine collections, we all learnt something here and enjoyed wandering through all the displays. The place itself used to be an asylum (upon hearing so, my father tried to book me in) and was Australia's first museum of "the social history of migration in Australia". My favourite displays were the clothing and migrant hostel.

    Their Facebook page describes Chakey Kim as a pastry goddess, so we had high expectations when we walked in... and very full stomachs walking out! The pastries are made fresh daily so the shop smells delicious. Croissants, sandwiches, coffee all go down a treat. Yum!

    Hence the name, the building was built in 1918. Even before we went inside I was convinced this would be a great place to eat, even just to take in the beauty of the place. It was obvious the chef took great pride in the food we were presented with. I didn't want to eat the Baileys and scorched almond ice cream sundae without taking a photo of it first!

    We visited here with our friends, who couldn't stop raving about it. Feeling adventurous, we all had a five course meal and the staff recommended some great wines to match. Despite feeling like I would burst afterwards, it wasn't as hard on the wallet as I thought it would be. Our friends were right about this place, no wonder they're regulars.

    All meals our were delicious, hot and well presented. Great service. Lovely wines which we tasted before lunch and then had them served at the table.

    The wines are all local and although not a big selection it is quite satisfactory including the house wines. The food is consistently good and you can sit on the large airy verandah.

    Accessible Adelaide

    Allegedly any point inside the city limits (think airport, city centre, beaches) can be accessed within 20 minutes, making the area easy to travel through, especially on buses or the tram.

    Oldest yet finest

    It's no wonder the wines here are great - the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine producing regions, and one of the world's finest. You'll be spoilt for choice amongst the 150 wineries there, I know I was!

    Mclaren Vale is a heritage site

    In 2011 special legislation was introduced to protect the unique heritage of the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. South Australian Premier Mike Rann said: "Barossa and McLaren Vale food and wine are key icons of South Australia."

    Australia's opal capital

    As the capital of South Australia (itself the opal capital of Australia), Adelaide is a popular place to shop for the beautiful stone. Buy it in stone form or crafted into rings, necklaces, bracelets and other jewelry.
