For the curious and inquisitive. A thought-provoking tour for those interested in the early history of the Clare Valley. You'll hear detailed, fully-narrated stories of the Valley and its early pioneers, visiting the grave of Clare's first settler John Horrocks, and the landmark tree under which he first camped. You'll enjoy an intimate, guided tour of Sevenhill Cellars - a sacred site of seductive wine and spiritual character that was built by the society of Jesuits in 1851. Hear their stories, inspect their 160-year-old vines and, of course, taste their world-famous wines. From here, we'll travel on back roads and private property, through vineyards and farmland with stunning views of Polish Hill River and beyond. There's no shortage of photo opportunities. We'll sample wines from some of the Valley's younger stars like Hill River Estate, Pikes, Paulett or Reillys we share the love at Clare Valley Tours and we'll choose a winery to stop for lunch as well. As we travel between cellar doors you'll doubtless have plenty of questions: What crop is that? What vines are those? When will the vines bud? We're confident we'll have all the answers! The historic township of Mintaro is not to be missed. Established around 1850 as an overnight stop for Ox drays carting the rich ore of the Burra Mines to Port Wakefield, the heritage listed town is known for its world class slate. It's also home to the first Jesuit church built in Australia. And then there's the jewel of South Australia's Mid-North, Martindale Hall. Take a trip back in time with a guided tour of this Georgian-style mansion built in 1879 by country squire Edward Bowman, who surrounded the home with a polo ground, a cricket pitch, a racecourse and a boating lake. He eventually sold the property in 1891 to William Mortlock, who bought it as a wedding gift for his wife. Martindale Hall was, of course, the setting for iconic Australian film, Picnic at Hanging Rock. We assure you, the ghosts here are all friendly. We then travel the backroads from Mintaro to the picturesque Skillogalee Valley, passing sprawling Hughes Park on our way to the Skillogalee Restaurant for afternoon tea. A perfect way to finish a great day out.

Burra Unearthed
Adults: $156.00 / Children: $156.00


We begin an absorbing day with a tour of historic Bungaree Station, an important part of South Australia's pastoral history located on the northern outskirts of Clare. The name comes from the aboriginal word Bungurrie, meaning My Country or Place of Deep Water and the station's story begins on Christmas Day, 1841, when it was purchased as grazing land by the Hawker brothers. It would become an extensive farming property running around 100,000 merino sheep across almost 70,000 hectares. Today it remains outwardly unchanged and is run as a mixed farm by the fourth, fifth and sixth generations of the Hawker Family. By mid-morning we'll be on our way to Burra. We'll travel via Spalding - the half-way point of the Heysen and Mawson trails and past the Bundaleer water channels, a significant part of the state's engineering history. As we enter Burra we'll pass the Midnight Oil House, immortalised on the cover of the band's 1987 album Diesel and Dust, and we'll swing past Mount Bryan, birthplace of Australian polar explorer, pilot and World War Two photographer Sir Hubert Wilkins. This a glimpse into the relatively unknown story of a remarkable local man who, with fellow pilot Carl Ben Eielson, became the first men to fly across the north and south poles in the same year. Once in Burra, enjoy some free time to grab some lunch and wander around the cafes and antique stores before you unlock the age-old secrets of this charming town with the unique passport key. The key is included in your Burra Unearthed fee and grants you instant access to the town's most intriguing sites, including the Redruth Gaol, Unicorn Brewery, the Monster Mine and the Miners Dugouts. This expedition ends a fascinating day where you'll have got up close and personal with the Mid-North's fascinating past. We'll have you home by 5pm.
