Coonawarra March Long Weekend Guide

There is nothing like a long weekend to relax, recharge and explore.

With an extra day up our sleeves on the March Long weekend to get away, there’s every reason to go that bit further to discover Coonawarra and the wonders of the Limestone Coast.

Our famed Coonawarra Strip is lined with over 25 Cellar Doors with some of Australia’s most recognised wine brands and boutique and family-owned operations, scattered along one stretch of road.  So you’ll have plenty of options to fill your itinerary, and your glass!

Whilst Coonawarra is best known for its reds, there is a huge array of varieties and styles on offer, with Coonawarra’s producers crafting some of Australia’s finest cool climate wines.

Want to know who is pouring what wines, where you can grab a bite to eat or what cellar doors welcome dogs on the property? You can refine your search here

 Walk, ride or hit your stride along Coonawarra’s newest Tourism Trail-  The Coonawarra Rail Trail, or weave your way through the vines and enjoy the Coonawarra Wineries Walking Trail.

You can also download our Coonawarra Wine Region Map to help you navigate your way along the Coonawarra Strip.
