In October 2012 we embarked on a project to timelapse Australia. Nearly 5 months have gone by, with over 300,000 photos taken and 21TB of WD hard drives full.
Please visit facebook.com/timelapsetheworld to follow the journey, as there is still another month of travel to do here in Australia, before we leave for New Zealand.
This timelapse video features four wine regions of South Australia – the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley and Coonawarra.
It’s a wonderful experience travelling around the vineyards and wineries – they are a must-see in South Australia. There are more than 200 cellar doors on Adelaide’s doorstep.
Five hotels/motels generously donated accommodation, one from each of the four wine regions plus Adelaide. The standard of accommodation was superb and their welcome was especially friendly. Please support them when you travel to South Australia.
Special thanks to:
Lyndoch Hill, BAROSSA VALLEY
McLaren Vale Motel & Apartments, McLAREN VALE
Clare Valley Motel, CLARE VALLEY
Chardonnay Lodge, COONAWARRA
iStay Precinct, ADELAIDE
You’ll also notice some great footage of the wine bottling process. Special thanks to Vinpac International for allowing us access to this impressive process.
