ITINERARY:
DAY 01: ARRIVE ADELAIDE – (98km) TAILEM BEND – (237km) ROBE

Upon arrival at Adelaide Airport, pick up car hire at the airport and begin your self-drive holiday to The Limestone Coast where rugged coastlines, clear blue waters and white, sandy beaches blend brilliantly with lush farming country, volcanic craters, caves, vineyards and fresh local produce like southern rock lobster and wagyu beef. The Real Food Trail offers an experience discovering the best fresh produce and specialty products the region has to offer. Drive out from Adelaide City; take Highway A1 and M1 towards Tailem Bend. You may stop here for morning tea. Head southwest to Meningie on Highway B1 and soak in the views of the scenic coastal drive. Stop at Meningie and walk to Meningie Hill Lookout, which offers uninterrupted views of Lake Albert. Continue south and you will reach the town of Kingston SE, home of the 18.2m high Big Lobster “Larry”. Then head down via Highway B101 to Robe, a popular seaside town known for its crayfish. Enjoy the seafood and crayfish at a restaurant by the beach. Visit Cape Dombey and take a photo of the famous obelisk. This is used to navigate the entrance to Guichen Bay and to store rocket lifesaving equipment. If time permits, for those sun lovers, you may want to take a swim in the pristine waters of Guichen Bay. Overnight: Robe

DAY 02: ROBE - (126KM) MT GAMBIER
This morning, follow the coast down to Beachport, known to have the longest jetty in Australia. Drive along the Bowman Scenic Drive and take in the spectacular views of the rugged coastline. You may want to put on your swim wear and take a dip in the Salt Lake - Pool of Siloam, which has a salt concentration seven times greater than the sea. Continue your drive to Millicent which offers scenic drive along the Woakwine Range Wind Farm - largest wind farm in the Southern Hemisphere, where rows after rows of giant wind turbines come into sight and continue your drive to Mt Gambier - South Australia’s second largest city. Stop and see the Blue Lake, which mysteriously changes to an intense deep turquoise blue in early November. The colouring remains until late February. You may want to join the guided Aquifer Tour, which takes visitors in a glass panelled lift down the original dolomite well shaft, from which water was originally extracted. Explore Umpherston Sinkhole and Englebrecht Cave beneath the city's streets. End your day for a mouth-watering experience; try the world's best Wagyu Beef from Limestone Coast at Mayura Station. Overnight: Mt Gambier

DAY 03: MT GAMBIER – (60km) COONAWARRA - (45km) NARACOORTE
Continue to explore Mt Gambier and Port Macdonnell - the southernmost town in South Australia and known as the 'Southern Rock Lobster Capital of Australia'. Travel north on Highway A66 to the famous Coonawarra wine region, where its rich terrarosa soil is responsible for great red wines. More than 20 cellar doors can be found along Riddoch Highway, which cuts right up the middle of the thin strip of Coonawarra. Sample some of Australia's best cabernets in the dozen or so cellar doors here, all set among beautifully maintained landscapes. Continue your journey to Naracoorte towards north on Highway A66 (30 minutes drive away). Overnight: Naracoorte

DAY 04: NARACOORTE - (332km) - ADELAIDE
This morning, suggest to join a guided tour to explore the impressive UNESCO Heritage Naracoorte Caves. You will marvel at the interconnecting chambers and galleries of impressive live decorations as they weave and turn through limestone hills, in what is one Australia’s ‘ World Heritage ’ listed Conservation Parks. You can view the delicate wonders of calcite, or explore a 350,000 year old fossil bed of amazing diversity. You can even try adventure caving here. Continue on to Padthaway, known as a classic Chardonnay region and visit some of the cellar doors. Drive through Keith and onto Highway A8, passing through Coonalpyn and Tailem Bend. Return to Adelaide via Highway M1, followed by A1 and Glen Osmond Road. Overnight: Adelaide
