Barossa Valley, South Australia Holidays

The Barossa Valley is a renowned wine-producing region northeast of Adelaide, in South Australia. The area encompasses towns such as Tanunda, Angaston and Nuriootpa, and an array of high-profile wineries offering tours and cellar-door tastings. Shiraz grapes are the local speciality. The stone cottages and Lutheran churches throughout the region are testament to a 19th-century wave of German settlers.

Barossa Valley Holidays

The Barossa is home to the biggest names in Australian wine, including world-renowned Penfolds, Henschke Cellars, Wolf Blass and Jacob's Creek; along with a host of emerging boutique and artisan winemakers producing the next generation of Australian wines. One of the country's oldest, Seppeltsfield, is the only winery in the world to release a 100-year-old single vintage wine each year: the Para 100 Year Old Vintage Tawny. The Taste Your Birth Year tour allows you to sip a fortified wine made the year you were born. You can also taste wine made during important moments in history. Sample more than 20 small producers at the Barossa Small Winemakers Centre at Château Tanunda.
While the Barossa is world-famous for its amazing wines, it's also renowned for its seasonal produce, artisan food producers and award-winning restaurants. The Butcher, Baker, Winemaker Trail is perfect for a day of exploring by car or bike. Pick up a map and picnic hamper at the Barossa Visitor Information Centre and add to your basket with gourmet food stops along the trail. Find freshly baked bread at Apex Bakery, handmade cheese from the Barossa Valley Cheese Company, traditionally smoked sausages from Schulz Butchers and a relish or two from Zimmy’s Barossa Valley Produce. Top it off with a bottle of wine from one of the wineries on the trail, which include Penfolds, Jacob's Creek and Seppeltsfield.
Once you’ve had your fill of fine food and wine, it might be time to walk it off in one of the national parks surrounding the Barossa Valley. Hale Conservation Park, Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park and Sandy Creek Conservation Park all offer bushwalking trails and the chance to spot native Australian animals. In the Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park, there are two great walks: the one-hour, two-kilometre (1.25-mile) Stringybark loop through the forest; and the more challenging Wallowa hike for experienced bushwalkers, a 9.4-kilometre (5.8-miles) four-hour return walk. The reward is spectacular views over the Barossa Valley, sightings of western grey kangaroos and the sounds of native birds such as honeyeaters, rosellas and lorikeets.
