The Bend Motorsport Park is one of the most significant developments in Australian motorsport history. A state of the art, world-class motorsport facility, The Bend delivers an exhilarating experience regardless of any event taking place or not! You will be treated to commentary about the site, and have the opportunity to see a static display of timeless cars from around the globe (if you haven’t visited already!).

The Big Olive Company is Australia's premier olive operation. It boasts the largest manufacturing plant and showroom under the one roof for olives and olive oil in the southern hemisphere.  Here we visit the showroom and factory to sample some of the finest olive products.

Wellington Courthouse Cafe, * currently closed * built in 1841 is a South Australian National Trust riverfront site with loads of surprises waiting for you. Wellington is one of the oldest towns on the River Murray, and was the site of the first river crossing ferry (there are now 12 in South Australia). The Old Courthouse and Police Station provide wonderful examples of early living and local history, artefacts, such as a telephone exchange system, kitchen and cooking utensils, and pictorial examples of the building and area back in the 1800’s. The Courthouse boasts beautiful surrounds with an open courtyard to enjoy Devonshire Tea included in the tour.  Note: alternatively, this tour may visit 'The Hall', a modern rustic cafe just across the river at Wellington East.

Raukkan Aboriginal Heritage awaits at the stunning location where Lakes Alexandrina and Albert meet.  It’s the birthplace of famous Aboriginal author and inventor, David Unaipon whose image, along with the mission church of Raukkan, appears on the Australian $50 note. Built in 1869 the restored church is still in use today.  Raukkan has recently been visited by internationally renowned artist Guido van Helten where he painted a mural in the town, and is a great introduction to his artistic feature at the Coonalpyn silos later in your tour.

Coorong Wild Seafood showcase their famous Coorong Yelloweye Mullet with a filleting demonstration and informative behind the scenes factory tour by the people who catch the fish themselves.  Your experience is topped off with a mouth-watering seafood lunch (alternatives available if you don’t like seafood). This Coorong seafood is supplied to some of the best restaurants in Australia and is a highlight of your tour.
