You definitely won’t be short of a glass of wine along this 33km trail in the Clare Valley. Originally a railway line connecting Adelaide and Spalding that was shut down in 1983, the trail was rejuvenated as a recreational cycling and walking track in 1994 by a group of locals. Start off at the restored Auburn Railway station building which is now home to Mount Horrocks Wines. You’ll then follow the trail through the countryside, overlooking many vineyards, before reaching your next cellar door in the small township of Leasingham. Expect more wine tastings as you pass through Watervale, Penwortham and Sevenhill. If you taste a wine you love, ask if you can get a case transported to your accommodation. As well as vineyards, there are plenty of cafes and quaint countryside pubs dotted along the way to keep you going. We recommend stopping for lunch at Shut the Gate wines in Watervale where you can pick and choose what goes into your own picnic basket from a variety of local produce.
