Napoleon has been credited with stating that an army marches on its stomach. If true then it is equally true that nourishment is a key ingredient in being able to undertake a 4 day walk.
However, rather than just providing food that merely sustains we pride ourselves on taking our guests on an epicurean journey in which they sample some of the wonderful foods that are locally grown. We have carefully chosen these foods and suppliers for 3 reasons.
Firstly, it gives a unique insight into many flavours of the Fleurieu Peninsula, most of which are not available in mainstream supermarkets. Second, it supports local small providores and finally and most importantly it minimizes food miles.
Similarly, our wines are not only paired with each dish to enhance those delicious flavours but have also been carefully selected from the plethora of award winning wineries of the renowned McLaren Vale region a short drive up the road. (Yes, the research was an arduous task for which there was no shortage of volunteers).
The lagers, ales and ciders we serve are also locally made and sourced from the growing number of micro-breweries that have emerged in recent years.
Altogether, this approach plays a key role in our desire to enable guests to develop a greater appreciation of our local environment as part of the ‘immersive travel’ concept. By undertaking the Southern Ocean Walk you will not only learn about the flora & fauna along the trail but also develop a greater appreciation of the wider region and its history.
If you have always wanted to participate in a wonderful experience like this why not join us on one of our walks in 2023. We still have some availability for our tours departing in June and July.
