Penwortham sits within a picturesque valley and is an early settlement of the Clare Valley, one of South Australia’s prominent wine regions.

It’s the perfect place to take a cosy holiday and recharge the batteries. Stay in a charming local cabin or cottage, and venture out to the welcoming wineries and cellar doors scattered throughout the area. Famous local wine labels include Stringy Brae, Skillogalee and, of course, Penwortham.

Young explorer John Ainsworth Horrocks established his family property at Penwortham in 1840. His orginial cottage, Green’s Cottage, is administered by the Mount Horrocks Historical Society. Today a cairn in Horrocks’s honour marks the gateway into the secluded bushland of Penwortham cemetery where a number of those early settlers, including the explorer, are buried.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
