The Barossa is only an hour from Adelaide. It contains many historical buildings and winery areas and is home to Maggie Beer's famous 'farm store', where you can walk around the lake and see the beautiful birds in the aviary.
There are also some great hiking spots and the Heysen trail goes through the valley. The Germans settled in the valley in the colonial era. Great restaurants, great wine. Each little town has a unique character. Tanunda is great for the restaurants and it is central; Angastan is so picturesque; Lyndoch is closest to Adelaide and is a good commercial centre. There are many other beautiful towns in the valley.
Great area to visit if you enjoy wines. Plenty of wineries, not too distant from each other. All staff in the eight or so wineries we visited where extremely friendly and helpful in explaining their wines.
Thoroughly enjoyed out time in Barossa Valley, visited most neighbouring towns and sights, historical Seppeltsfield, Maggie Beers Shop and walked the streets, shopped and ate!!
So close to home but we forget how beautiful it is - you have to try a breakfast wrap, amazing - a cafe in Angaston Great little getaway, beautiful wineries, beautiful food
if your not a fan of wine this probably wont be the trip of a lifetime however if you do like wine you will be completely in your element
Excellent area to visit.Easy to get around.Easy travelling from the Adelaide airport.Beautiful scenery with plenty of vinyards to visit.
Every corner on every road has a winery to visit. A lot of the smaller towns have less people living in them but not less the history.
Every town has it's own history & for me that his was my ancestors.
Beautiful, relaxing, amazing food and wine. Would definitely recommend travellers to Adelaide make time to visit the Barossa.
The Barossa Valley was a lovely place to drive around and the countryside and old buildings at the Wineries were interesting.
Loved the area. It's beautiful, remote with good outdoor activities easily accessible and good wine readily available.
We loved the Barossa, your spoilt for beautiful wineries and great restaurants, and beautiful scenery
