The 12th AFF Annual Gathering was decided to be held in Adelaide, over the weekend of the 19th to 21st October. The average temperature range for October is 11.5ºC to 22.1ºC, with a relative humidity of 45%. The average rainfall is 42mm with 10 rainy days. It is Australia's fifth largest city (as of 2015). Activities for the weekend will include social drinks, dinners and social activities to local sights.
At this stage we are in the very early stages of planning the event, but more details will be released here as they come to hand. Last updated April 1st with Sunday Activity details.
Departing at 8:30am from outside the Adelaide Convention Centre, we head to Chateau Yaldara for a tour and premium tasting at 10:00am. At 11:30am we head to Saltram for another premium tasting and sit down lunch. This should take us to around 2:00pm. Assuming that all goes to schedule, we will take a trip up to Menglers Hill for a spectacular view over the valley. As long as we depart by 3:30pm, we will get to the airport by 5:30pm, then the usual drop-offs at the Hilton and starting point.
This wine tour has been curated by AFF member Buzzard, who will be joining the tour.

While not an exhaustive list, here are some of the chain properties available in Adelaide. The list does of course go on, and doesn't include many popular choices such as Rydges, Stamfords or Art Series Hotels. Unfortunately, the two new Marriott (née Starwood) properties will not be open until 2019.
