We’re now planted in Australia’s most famous wine region!
BIG4 guests to South Australia, it’s time to get excited. Two new parks have just joined the BIG4 family, and one is entrenched in the nation’s most celebrated wine region.
Let’s not muck about. On Adelaide’s doorstep is a wine region that is simply world class.
The Barossa is an Australian icon, and if you’re a wine lover it’s a region you must visit at least once in your lifetime.
Consider these numbers: a 175-year history of winemaking, upwards of 500 wineries, and 80-plus cellar doors. Many are among Australia’s most recognisable names; plenty have been in the same family for generations.

Better yet, the area incorporates both the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. This gives the Barossa the rare distinction of having both warm and cool-climate growing conditions that sit side by side.
Whether you wish to sip on the signature Barossa shiraz or Eden Valley riesling – or any of the other red and white varieties that this region produces exceptionally well – it’s all done with the greatest of ease.
And we’re proud to introduce one of the newest parks to our network, which enjoys prime position in the Barossa.
BIG4 Barossa Tourist Park
A leisurely 70km-drive from the Adelaide CBD, BIG4 Barossa is at the heart of this idyllic region in the pleasant township of Nuriootpa.
However, settle into this tranquil park and you’ll soon forget just how central you are to all the cellar-door action. Spacious, shady, and surrounded by natural beauty, BIG4 Barossa emits an instantly gratifying vibe of relaxation.
On site is a large swimming pool that’s perfect for a refreshing dip, while the inviting barbecue area is perfect for mingling with friends old and new.
And if you’re keen on a leisurely stroll or bike ride, Coulthard Reserve is on BIG4 Barossa’s doorstep.
It’s all backed by excellent accommodation: a wide variety of cabins to suit most budgets, caravan sites with many that are drive through, and camping facilities.
So put your feet up, relax, settle into your accommodation, and sip on some of the best wine you’ll ever taste.
Nearby: ‘Nuri’ is home to some of the region’s most prized cellar doors, including Penfolds and Wolf Blass, and shops of all shapes and sizes.
What if I don’t like wine? The Barossa has a wonderful collection of galleries and museums, cycling trails are abundant, and the region is a hot-air ballooning hotspot, too. Close by is Barossa Sculpture Park where impressive views are on offer. And if you’d prefer beer over wine, there is a couple of microbreweries worth checking out.
While you’re in SA…
We welcome another park to the BIG4 network: BIG4 Port Broughton Tourist Park.
Port Broughton is found at the top of the Yorke Peninsula, just beyond a two-hour drive north of Adelaide.
The Yorke Peninsula is famous for its outstanding coastline and beaches – many of which are crowd dodgers – and water leisure abounds. Surfing, diving, and fishing are all first class along the peninsula. As the cherry on top, you can pair all this with a bounty of delicious, fresh seafood.
Away from water, a fascinating, varied history explodes throughout the region. From copper mining to aviation heroes, it’s an absorbing past.
And BIG4 Port Broughton Tourist Park is the perfect base to explore it all, enjoying a central position in town. Its varied accommodation range is supported by facilities galore, including a swimming pool, jumping pillow, playground, and tennis court. Better still, it’s just a short stroll to the jetty.
