Overview
There are few better ways to experience the best of Australia than on a self-drive tour and this Secret South Australia trip is perfect for anyone wanting to make the most out of this fascinating region. Beginning and ending in Adelaide, you travel to Mt Gambier, Robe, Victor Harbor and the wine region of McLaren Vale and throughout the trip you stay at good and varied accommodation where you can meet the friendly locals.
Day 1
Adelaide to Mt Gambier
Your adventure begins when you pick up your hire vehicle and drive to the south-east of Adelaide to the slopes of an extinct volcano. Mt. Gambier has two famous attractions, the Blue Lake and the Cave in the centre of the city. As a consequence it is known as "Blue Lake City" or the "City Around a Cave". The lake is famous for its colour change from winter grey to intense blue in November. It remains blue until late March, and beside its beauty, is the source of domestic water. Overnight at The Barn

Day 2
Mt Gambier to Robe
This morning you leave Mt Gambier and drive to Robe on a road that passes Lake George, St Clair and Eliza. The Port of Robe was founded in 1847 and gradually grew, exporting wool and horses. Tourist Information is located in the Robe Historical Centre in the Library Building where you can find out about the museums and historic buildings. They will also have information on the tours in nearby Little Dip Conservation Park, a few miles to the south. Spend the next two nights at Salty Joe's Cottage

Day 3
Robe
A full day to discover the delights of Robe and the surrounding area. The town's distinctive combination of historical buildings, ocean, fishing fleets, lakes and dense bush makes it a great place to visit and good base to stay. Robe lies on the southern shore of Guichen Bay, just off the Princes Highway, and places worth visiting include Long Beach, Little Dip Conservation Park and Nature Reserve and the Obelisk on the coast

Day 4
Robe to Victor Harbor
Leave Robe today and drive to a delightful coastal resort, and the largest of the towns on Horseshoe Bay. Victor Harbor was an old whaling base and much of its early history is preserved at Whalers Haven Colony Museum. An old horse tram runs out to Granite Island, which has colonies of wallabies and fairy penguins. One of the best known landmarks on the south coast is Rosetta Bluff, with its natural rock formation, which dominates the skyline just west of the town. Overnight at Cheri on Sea Retreat
