Why not combine all your passions next month when the South Australian Living Artists Festival takes up residence around the state from 1-31 August? Clare Valley is just one of the regions celebrating this annual festival and while it can make an easy day trip, why not extend your stay a few days?

The full SALA program is available online and the handy map allows you to look up what’s on show in your neighbourhood or plan to travel further afield. If you are looking for an excuse to visit one of SA’s iconic wine regions, this is it.

Burra Regional Art Gallery

Reward yourself with a short break so you can take time to savour the exhibitions … and the local food and wine on offer. Accommodation options range from local caravan parks, to B&B/Farmstays such as Wuthering Heights and the luxury villas at Neagles Retreat.

Wuthering Heights

For wining and dining advice, and so much more, visit the Clare Valley Wine Food and Tourism Centre where you will find more information on this diverse region that stretches beyond the Barossa to the Flinders Ranges.
