Hidden Italy showcases two Australian walking tours that will please lovers of wine walking and wilderness!
McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills (SA): 12 June to 18 June 2021.
Join us in lovely South Australia as we walk trails through vineyards, above the ocean and over Mt Lofty Ranges in an immersive experience of the southern vales and Adelaide Hills. McLaren Vale, nestled between the ocean and gently rolling hills south of Adelaide, boasts famous wineries and excellent restaurants We taste our way through the region, walking a variety of beautiful trails between towns, along coastal clifftops and forest trails, before heading to the hills and Mt Lofty, the highest point in the Adelaide Hills.
This 7-day walking tour showcases the best of the region including: six nights’ accommodation in 4-star hotels (the first night in the fashionable East end of Adelaide, then four nights overlooking vineyards on the edge of the McLaren Vale and finally the last night in an historic hotel on Mt Lofty in the Adelaide Hills); five guided walks; and vineyard visits with tastings.
Port Douglas, Daintree and the Great Barrier Reef (QLD): 7 August to 13 August 2021
There aren't many places in the world where you can walk out of one World Heritage Area and straight into another one. Daintree in Far North Queensland is one such place. Here, you walk out of the Daintree Rainforest (the planet’s oldest rainforest) and into the Great Barrier Reef (the planet’s largest living thing). These are not the only things the area has to offer. It has a fascinating Indigenous and colonial history; endless beaches, excellent accommodation and fabulous food. This new Hidden Italy all-inclusive, guided walking tour will allow you to explore all this, and more.
The 7-day tour starts with a night in a suite in a 4-star hotel overlooking Four Mile Beach in the heart of Port Douglas. From here we move north to a fabulous ‘ecolodge’ in the heart of the Daintree Forest. This will be our base for the next four nights. Our activities includes five guided walks; a lazy drift down the Mossman River; an introduction to the traditions of the Kuku Yalanji people; a visit to Cape Tribulation; a day visiting the Great Barrier Reef; good company; and lots of delicious food.
