Sydney, a city devoted to the ocean. From hip Bondi Beach south of the city to the cliffs of Whale Beach to the north, Sydney offers a genuine oceanside way of living with all kinds of fun activities every day: sailing on the harbour, surfing, walking, kite-surfing etc. Sydney, the grand harbour city, is the starting point on a route that crosses 1,200km (about 2 hours by air) to the festival and artists city of Adelaide on the south coast of Australia. To the northeast of Adelaide, we discover the amazing Eden and Barossa valleys which are wholly devoted to wine growing. These outstanding Syrah vineyards (the local name for this variety is Shiraz) give wines that are rich with good strength. Some are so good they are worth the trip alone...

Restaurant in a vineyard. A dirt track wends its way through the heart of the vineyard to the old farm outbuildings. The restaurant occupies elegantly restored stables overlooking the wine cellar.
