Walking the Riesling Trail, Clare

Along the Riesling Trail near Clare, South Australia

Over recent days I’ve been featuring photos taken along the Riesling Trail in the Clare Valley, South Australia. This part of my home state features many beautiful scenes, most of them highlighting either the many vineyards or the iconic red gum trees, like those shown above.

During Easter this year my family and I walked along this trail, tackling it in easy stages. I had a hard time concentrating on the walking; everywhere I looked I saw another photographic opportunity. I’ll be sharing more of these shots in coming days.

The Riesling Trail follows the old railway line through the valley. The rails and sleepers were removed some years ago and replaced with compacted gravel making walking and cycling a wonderful delight. An added bonus for wine lovers are the many wineries within a few minutes walk of the trail.
