The 27th of September marks World Tourism Day and we’ve put together a list of some things to do when visiting our home in Coonawarra to celebrate.
While international travel may be off the cards at the moment, why not explore the hidden gems that are in our own country?
Nestled between Melbourne and Adelaide, Coonawarra has so much to offer and is home to our beloved Brand’s Laira winery.
Here are a few things to check out when visiting the Coonawarra wine region:
Visit Brand’s Laira Cellar Door
The newly renovated cellar door is one not to miss. Indulge in your own winemaking experience and take home a bottle of your own creation to enjoy long after your trip to our Coonawarra Cellar Door is over.
Are restrictions currently prohibiting you from travelling? Have a virtual tour and tasting instead! Brand’s Laira have a brand new cellar door just waiting for you, but in the meantime check out our virtual tour. Plus, while you’re at it, order some gorgeous Brand’s Laira wines, maybe a beautiful Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon and have a wine tasting in the comfort of your own home.
Overwhelmed and not sure where to start? Have all the hard work taken care of and book a tour. There are so many hidden secrets in the Coonawarra wine region that mustn’t go unseen! Leave the planning to the experts and give yourself more time to sit back and relax, as you should on holiday!
The Coonawarra walking trail is an amazing way to see the region, and the surrounding wineries . Stretching for about 5 kilometres, stop off for some food and wine at Brand’s Laira along the way.
Okay, so technically this isn’t in Coonawarra, but it’s pretty close. Just a short 20 minute drive out of Coonawarra, you’ll find the ancient Naracoorte Caves that are World Heritage listed and is one of the world’s most important fossil sites.
