Banrock Station, Kingston-on-Murray
A world leader in sustainable wine-making and tourism, Banrock Station Wine and Wetland Centre should be high on any ecotourist’s South Australian wish list. Sample the inexpensive wines at the centre, which is 40 per cent solar-powered, built with renewable materials on a former sheep farm, and was designed to have a minimal environmental footprint. Head out on one of the walking trails (up to 8 kilometres long) through the wetlands, where there are four bird hides, information huts and myriad birds, including regent parrots. Banrock Station’s extensive green credentials include donating over $5 million to environmental projects in Australia and overseas.
