In South Australia's Fleurieu Peninsula you can embark upon a 4WD tour that offers plenty of tasty flavours and bucketloads of adventure.

3 - Bundaberg Ginger Beer Factory 
The Bundaberg brand is a veritable Australasian favourite, so why not experience a taste of what it's about and where it all began? 

Head to the town of Bundaberg in Queensland and take the Bundaberg Barrel Tour, which takes you right back to the brand's origins in the early 1900s and walks you through its development right up until today.

5 - Little Creatures Fremantle 
Little Creatures, Fremantle's very own little brewery, packs a big punch when it comes to style and flavour. Head along and taste the acclaimed pale ale topped off by a delicious pizza, and take a brewery tour where you'll see how the magic is made up-close here in Western Australia.

6 - Yarra Valley microbreweries
Embark upon the Yarra Valley Cider and Ale Trail in the district to visit its many microbreweries. 

The trail winds its way through seven artisan cider and beer producers, which thrive in this South Australian region thanks to its verdant soil, great climate and passion for great flavours. Some of the highlights include the Coldstream Brewery and Hargreaves Hill Brewery. 

Make sure you come hungry, as there's plenty of fresh, local and seasonal produce to fill you up, too. 

7 - Ettamogah Pub 
Along the Bruce Highway in the Sunshine Coast is the Ettamogah Pub, an incredibly quirkily-shaped pub building. 

Its cartoonish style and appearance, including its bright red roof and 1930s Chevy truck sitting atop the building, draw in the crowds. 

Don’t miss out on the huge, delicious Australian-themed meals at the Bluey's Bar & Grill upstairs using local produce.
