Watervale - Fast Facts

Small village in the heart of the Clare Valley
Located 118 km north of Adelaide at the southern end of the Clare Valley, Watervale is a pretty town surrounded by vineyards. The town was named because it was located on a tributary of the Wakefield River although it seems to have been a general joke, certainly through the 19th century, for travellers to complain that they arrived in Watervale and could find no water at all.
