Winter Weekend in Clare and Burra 2015

This particular weekend we stayed in a B/B on the Riesling Trail... a great spot for walking/riding
as you can see from some of my photos which follow...

Traversing the picturesque Clare Valley wine region, the Riesling Trail is one of the first rail-trails to be developed in South Australia. Developed by the Office for Recreation and Sport and the Clare Valley community,
the trail runs for 27-kilometres along the old Riverton to Spalding railway line.

The trail runs between the towns of Clare and Auburn - approximately two hours drive north of Adelaide. It is well compacted,
making it suitable for recreational walkers, off-road bicycles, wheelchairs and pushers. Named after the grape and wine variety that the region is famous for, the Riesling Trail travels past many
cellar doors and other visitor attractions, making it ideal for those wanting a leisurely walk with a distraction or two!
