Where I stayed
Glenelg-at Sheila's Sister Pat's House
That evening we vistited a nature reserve just outside of the valley. We sat by a lake and watched the sun go down with a bottle of wine and a couple pizzas. Just as we hoped, a kangaroo came out of the bush for a drink of water from the lake. Since kangaroos are known to come out at dawn and dusk, we saw groups of them as we drove through the reserve. It is amazing how much they camoflauge with their environment, you almost can't even see them until you are right on top of them and they start moving. The wild kangarros are actually quite large, so it can be a little startling when you find yourself right on top of one, but they are very timid creatures.
We loved Mclaren Vale so much that we went back on our third and last day in Adelaide to a few more wineries that we missed. And did I mention that nearly all wine tasting in Australia is FREE, we were in heaven. On our way back to the airport, we stopped in a small German village in the Adelaide Hills called Handorf. It was a very charming little village, we had some German beers at a pub and some lovely apple strudel from a little bakery. We also bought some German sausage coated in chilli called "bum burner."
