  • Red Duck Brewery and Kilderkin Distillery
    At 2:00 pm head to Red Duck Brewery and Kilderkin Distillery for brewery/ distillery tour and tasting. Opened in 2005 by Scott and wife Vanessa after they left Melbourne for a change of pace, and named after the Shelducks that inhabit Lake Purrumbete close to the original brewery, Red Duck was for a while the only brewery between Geelong and Adelaide. Using a self-designed system that has been steadily expanded, the focus outside the core range is on small batch brewing: many releases are only produced in 500 litre batches; many of the barrel aged beers are scarcer still.
