The Clarendon Wine District includes wineries near the towns of Clarendon and Chandlers Hill, in the eastern part of Adelaide Hills Wine Region, east of Adelaide. The town of Clarendon, is a beautiful village located on the Onkaparinga River. It began as the location of a ford connecting the coach routes from McLaren Vale to Adelaide and from Meadows to Strathalbyn. The town has many fine examples of historic towns. The centrepiece is the Old Clarendon Inn that has been restored to its former glory and offers local wines in a pleasant setting with panoramic views. Clarendon has many cafes and restaurants, delightful craft shops and the local communities of Angel Gully, Cherry Gardens and Dorset Vale have extra shops to browse through. The nearby Onkaparinga River National Park offers a variety of nature trails and bushwalking trails through the gorge wetlands.
