Anchorage at Victor Harbor is nothing short of superb seaside dining
If all the action in this fourth stage of the race has you working up an appetite, Anchorage at Victor Harbor may have the perfect way to end the day’s race. Located close to the finish line, it is a must for mouthwatering meals made with the freshest local produce and served up with a variety of local wines. Everything from chargrilled seafood and steaks to wood-fired pizza is on offer at dinner. This is a feast any cyclist could eat to replenish all that lost energy from days on end of furious racing.

Penguins a plenty at Granite Island Recreation and Nature Park
If you find the cyclists have strayed and ventured off the beaten path, you may want to hurry over to Granite Island Recreation and Nature Park to see what all the excitement is about. This island is connected to the mainland by a single causeway and has a steep history that approximately 150 little penguins like to call home. You can take the horse-drawn tram along the causeway and discover the island’s wildlife and history, or perhaps you’d prefer to go along at dusk to join the guided penguin walk. This way, you can say hello to these cute little critters as they come ashore after a day of fishing. Just remember if you’re a cyclist, the penguins have right of way on this island, so do mind their space!

Celebrate food, wine, cycling and everything in between at the Unley Gourmet Gala
If you’re wondering why the Tour Down Under makes its way through the City of Unley, then you’ll have to go to the Gourmet Gala to find out. For one night only and as a precursor to Stage Four, King William Road will come alive in celebration of all things food and wine, complete with fashion parades, live music and cycling antics. You can expect to see art-pop duo The Twoks take their violin and drums to the stage, Chef Marion Grasby demonstrate her culinary prowess, and many other scintillating sounds and sounds besides. There’s only one question that begs to be asked: with all the tempting food and festivities, how will the teams ever make it to the starting line the next day?!
