Most people don’t explore South Australia’s McLaren Vale region on old horse tracks, fire breaks, cattle runs and disused roads.

But 4WD adventure company Off Piste takes the less travelled route to explore not only the Fleurieu Peninsula’s wineries but also its coastline and national parks. The tours visit local chefs, artisans and boutique wineries.

Off Piste, which has been operating since early this year,  now has half and full-day tours to Coorong and the Murray mouth as well.

The company was supported with funding from the South Australian Tourism Commission to help get on (and off) the road.
