Coonawarra Discovery brings to you a wide range of tours to suit your needs, offering all types of custom built, boutique style and private tour's in order to suit your everyday sightseeing wishes. For the lovers of fine wine we will take you on a journey to experience the breathtaking Coonawarra Wine Region where we take pride in being able to offer to you individualised tours in order to suit your needs. We can accommodate your wishes by visiting any of the 26 cellar doors in the Coonawarra region. We can tailor your tour to suit your needs, offer restaurant options and the ability to include other places of interest. Break for a delicious cheese platter which will be served in one of the beautiful gardens along the route. Cool bottled water is offered during the day so palates are not too overloaded between tastings. Journey with us on a Fine Wine and Dine tour where you will enjoy a half day cellar door visit of the Coonawarra region and then be transported to "The Tasting Room" at Mayura Station the home of the Full Blooded Wagyu Beef for a 4 course dinner seated at the chefs table. • Pick up from your accommodation within the region at 1pm • Wine tasting of up to five boutique cellar doors of your choice • Complimentary cheese plate and cold bottled water during tour • 4 course meal at The Tasting Room with matched museum wines • An interactive experience seated around the grill at The Chef's Table • Exclusive insights into the farming practices of Mayura Station and the history of Mayura full-blood Wagyu • Discussion of the cuts of meat and preparation methods utilised by The Tasting Room • Q & A with The Tasting Room's Head Chef • Return to your accommodation about 10 pm Book in for one of our Seasonal edible mushroom tours where you will be taught to correctly identify the very edible mushrooms in our Forrest. Mushroom identification can be very dangerous so this is why when we run our tours we only ever talk about two species: The pine Mushroom - Saffron Milk Caps and the Slippery Jacks. Once you empower yourself with the key features of the two edibles you cannot make mistakes, and that's where you want to be. Yes there are other known edible mushrooms out there but this take's a long time to learn so in our tour we stick to the basics. Watch our tour guide clean and prepare for you a gourmet Mushroom Bruschetta for you to enjoy. We can accommodate all your sightseeing needs by transporting you across the beautiful locations that The Limestone Coast has to offer. The Limestone Coast is full of first class sight-seeing opportunities. The region features many forms of industries including, wine making, timber, dairy,seafood, agricultural and fishing. The underlying limestone of our region has enabled the formation of world heritage listed caves and cave systems, sinkholes, ponds and lakes. Add to this, the rugged and beautiful coastal scenery and volcanic features, the region has something for everyone to enjoy. Our vehicle is comfortable and roomy and caters for 7 passengers so you are guaranteed a very unique and personalised service. We are able to accommodate larger groups upon request. Able to accommodate transportation assistance for guests between airports, accommodation, restaurants and meetings, Give us a call to discuss your individual needs. Owned and Operated by local people for 17 years with a rich family history spanning more than 170 years. Tell us what you would like to experience and we will build it.

This felt more of a relaxed chit-chat with a bunch of friends than a wine tour. Kath, a born-and-bred local and our guide, appeared to have deep personal and professional relationships with the staff of the wineries we visited. This seemed to get us honest...More

We were very happy with our experience with Coonawarra discovery. They went to the wineries that we asked for and did not hurry is on to other wineries. The guide was very knowledgeable and we have nothing but praise for her efforts.
