Renowned for their many wine-producing estates, the Barossa Valley is a breathtaking region home to many high-profile wineries.
If you and your partner are major foodies with a refined taste in wine, then the Barossa is a destination you will want to consider. While it is easily mistaken for the vineyards of Tuscany, the beauty of this region is one that has to be witnessed – and tasted!
With cheese specialists, jam factories and chocolate companies, the wineries and cellar doors aren’t the only thing on offer to your taste buds down here! On top of this, you will find many gourmet restaurants and cafes waiting for you to come and enjoy their succulent dishes.

From cosy villas to prestigious estates and homesteads, you have plenty of accommodation to choose from.

Dreaming of a natural paradise? Visit the Northern Territory! Besides the obvious natural landmark, Ayers Rock, the Northern Territory’s capital city, Darwin, is the gateway to many natural wonderlands you can explore.

Set up on Mindil Beach and witness the day as it ends with a stunning sunset. Afterwards, head over to the markets where you’ll be able to dive into handcrafted goods and an array of food and drink choices.
If you appreciate the bushy terrain, we recommend you head inland to discover a plethora of treats.
