Walking the Riesling Trail, Clare

Along the Riesling Trail near Clare, South Australia

Walking the Riesling Trail from Auburn to just north of Clare in the mid north of South Australia is a wonderful way to experience this beautiful part of our state. The Clare Valley is renowned for its excellent wineries and the walking track passes near to many of them.

The Riesling Trail follows the old railway line which was dismantled some years ago. The rails, sleepers and ballast were replaced with compacted gravel. Consequently it is both easy walking and great for cycling along. On the Easter weekend earlier this year my family traversed a good part of this wonderful part of the state. I’ll be showing more photos of the countryside there in the coming days.
