The circular side of Adelaide's southern regions

See how South Australian businesses are thriving in the circular economy, and taste what this beautiful part of the world has to offer at our unique industry tour of the southern regions of Adelaide.
Our tour takes in the Murray River and the renowned McLaren Vale wine region. The tour will be hosted by Adelaide circular economy practitioner, Uma Preston and Ngarrindjeri cultural ambassador, Sean Weetra-Newchurch.
Let us guide you on an information-packed yet relaxing journey that takes in:

  • Peats Soils and Garden Supplies' organics recycling facility, that transforms organic waste from industry and kerbside collection into high value products for Adelaide’s food and wine industry through composting and anaerobic digestion
  • Two iconic McLaren Vale wineries offering guided tastings of their award winning wines and a gourmet lunch. Gemtree and Kay Brothers will show you how circular approaches to managing their wastes, water and energy drive productivity and quality in their operations – and how they are regenerating biodiversity to create value
  • A gourmet lunch by one of South Australia’s finest restaurants the Salopian Inn, featuring local and sustainably sourced ingredients
  • The mighty Murray River and its significance in Ngarrindjeri land and resource management
  • A chance to also see an example of Australian made recycled plastic products and a circular economy business model that connects these to growers and their recycling efforts

Connect with other Powering the change participants and South Australian innovators among a backdrop of vines, indigenous heritage and collaboration.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to tap into the pulse of the people of the south, the landscapes in which they live and work, their motivations and collaborations to protect and restore the environment; and of course to savour their world-renowned wines and produce.
