AGRICULTURAL GROUP TOUR - 2 day 1 night
The primary industries of agriculture, forestry and fishing have played a lead role in South Australia‟s economic development since European settlement, and continue to be a major source of wealth creation and export earnings for the state.
The agricultural sector directly contributes about 4% of gross state product (GSP) in South Australia, with the major components being wheat and barley, and wool production, while the fisheries and forestry industries also are important income generating activities.
Although much of the state is arid, the southern areas receive suitable levels of rainfall for a wide array of agricultural-based activities, including wine and dairy production, growing of fruit and vegetable, cut flowers and poultry.
