I know you say you've done the Barossa before but have you tried the Cheese and Wine Tour around the area? You start off at the cheese shop in Angaston, where they supply you with a cool bag filled with cheese, crackers, a mini cheese board and cheese knife, plus extras if you like, and a map of all the participating wineries, with suggested routes, and tasting notes on which cheese to try with which wine. Then you head off and on arriving at the wineries, get your little bar-top picnic out as you sample their wares! We've done this twice now, and it is great fun, adds a little extra to a normal wine tasting, and sparks off some great conversations with other people you meet! I believe there are similar things you can do around McLaren Vale (start at the visitors centre).
Other than that, a trip down to Victor, stopping at Strathalbyn on the way for coffee and cakes and a listen to the amazing, german, didgeridoo player in the antique shop there is always fun!
I think we drove that way to Mannum once, is that where there are lots of strange rocks that someone has decorated with graffiti?

Just remember to wrap up very warm as it's freezing down there especially when whale spotting.
