Flanked by the wheat-coloured Willunga Scarp and striated with vines, McLaren Vale is just 40 minutes south of Adelaide. Servicing the famed McLaren Vale Wine Region, it's a businesslike, utilitarian town strung along an endless main street – but it has some terrific cafes and eateries, both centrally and in the back-blocks, and a few handy places to stay. But more critically, the town offers easy access to some truly excellent winery cellar doors.
