The Coonawarra Wineries Walking Trail is an easy walk through the vineyards and between the wineries giving you a behind the scenes glimpse of viticulture and winemaking practices in Coonawarra. It includes 6 wineries and is just under 5 kilometres in length.
If you allow 20 minutes at each winery, the trail should take approximately 3 hours to complete. You may wish to factor in more time and allow for a lunch stop at Fodder or a pre-ordered picnic basket from the Coonawarra Store to enjoy at one of the wineries.
The six wineries on the trail are all open seven days a week (except some public holidays) and the eateries as advertised. You will be warmly welcomed at all of them for tastings or refreshments.
Coonawarra is located approximately 440kms west of Melbourne via Ballarat & Hamilton and 560kms via the Great Ocean Road and 375kms South of Adelaide. It’s also close to other great tourism regions such as The Grampians & Robe.

Love the concept of the walking trail, it took the hassle out of planning our day in Coonawarra. Every Cellar Door we visited were very welcoming, we loved their wines and as a bonus we got some exercise out of it!
What a fabulous afternoon I had with a small group friends experiencing the Coonawarra Walking Trail! Strolling through the vineyards and enjoying the different views of the wineries and cellar doors was just as fun as visiting the wineries themselves. Highly recommend!
