The next day's adventure gives the opportunity to experience a taste of the real Australia on a 6,000-acre grazing property on the eastern slopes of the Mount Lofty Ranges. We travel through the Adelaide Hills to arrive at Portee Station; on the edge of the River Murray. We have a morning tea in the shearers' quarters, followed by introduction to the stud merino sheep and possibly a sheep shearing demonstration. After an adventurous 4 WD vehicle tour through steep rugged hills we arrive at the tranquil spot by a natural spring to enjoy a BBQ lunch of damper, billy tea and homegrown chops! Walk through the timeless towering gums, rocky outcrops and babbling creeks and see native flora, and an abundance of kangaroos and bird life. We may take a boat ride along the Murray River. This unspoilt, peaceful area offers the opportunity to cruise the river and relax whilst taking in the river sights of the soaring red cliffs, ancient gums and lagoons teeming with bird life.
