GRAPES FOR GOOD TRAIL – LANGHORNE CREEK
When Kimbolton Wines Director Nicole Clark was looking for a way to support Monarto Safari Park, she started Grapes for Good and created Kimbolton’s ‘The Cheetah’ wine — a 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, which raises funds for vital cheetah conservation.
Since then, Nicole has worked to bring five other winery partners into the mix, including Bleasdale, Bremerton, Lake Breeze, The Winehouse and Vineyard Road. Each winery has put forward a limited edition bottle, with part proceeds donated back to animal conservation.

SEA WIRRINA TOUR
See the sea from the sea! The Big Duck is now taking tours from Wirrina Cove Marina before cruising south along the coastline so you can view the stunning headlands, cliffs, bays and pristine turquoise waters of St Vincent Gulf. Keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife as you potter past the fur seal colony, with pods of dolphins and white-bellied sea eagles circling above.
We spend our days lost in to-do lists, so why not make the effort to find some time just for you? The Lost Retreats are designed to provide you with a magical short-term stay in an off-grid, sustainable and self- contained little house. Lose yourself in nature, take a hot bath surrounded by gum trees, soak in the silence and explore the unexpected. Ahh, bliss! @lostretreats
