Clare Valley is full of hidden treasures. Wineries, food, trails and parks, and don't forget events!





Wineries - just a short list. You can pick up a map with all wineries of the Valley in the Visitor Information Centre on Spring Gully Road on the southern part of Clare and at most wineries.



With views to die for... oh and wine, food and beer to die for, you won't want to miss Paulett's winery just 10 mins drive and on the road to the historic town of Mintaro.
