© Harvest Festival McLaren Vale 2011 McLaren Vale is situated just 45 minutes south of Adelaide. Part of the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula, the area boasts scenic vistas of vines, olive groves and almond orchards. There are also iconic beaches within a ten minute drive west of the town, while a drive to the east will see you heading into the hill ranges. South will see you reaching the coast in under an hour and in the right time of year the chance to see whales as they nurture calves and make the long slow journey to colder waters.  McLaren’s nearest neighbour is Willunga - in itself a gourmet destination with a regular Saturday Farmer’s market. Several heritage trails share the two towns, with the Shiraz trail providing a safe cycling and walking path which connects the two places.  We hope that the Harvest Festival will give you the taste for the region and get you coming back to explore the region.
