Driving time from Adelaide is around 2 hours. Bring your own vehicle or hire one in Adelaide then head north.

You can choose to follow the signs to Burra, or head via the Thiele Highway via Eudunda.

A coach service operates between Adelaide, the Clare Valley Tourism Region and other regional localities. Charter coach services are also available.
