Rolling Hills, Vineyards & Fresh Produce
Thanks to its wine, the Barossa is a region that’s firmly entrenched on the map. This historical grape-growing area is home to some of the best winemakers on the planet. Yet while world famous for its grapes, there’s much more to the Barossa than reds and whites, as you’ll soon discover.

Parks in the The Barossa area
A little more than an hour’s drive northeast of the Adelaide CBD will put you in the heart of the Barossa. And here it’s a feast for the senses.
Rolling hills and vineyards cloak the beautiful surrounds, and those famous cellar doors demand serious attention. If you have even just a remote interest in wine, this is the place to indulge. Of the 80 or so cellar doors you can visit, the names include big guns Penfolds (Grange), Henschke Cellars, Jacob’s Creek, and Wolf Blass. And you can’t miss striking Château Tanunda.
But this region is not just about delicious wine. Its produce is every bit as satisfying. Sample the many goodies at prized bakeries, farmers’ markets, or from leading restaurants. Or stock up at the legendary Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop in Nuriootpa.
Away from the indulgence of food and wine, the Barossa pours on appeal. Art and history abound: The Greenock Aviation Museum is an excellent find, while the Barossa Regional Gallery in Tanunda is a compelling attraction.
Head outdoors and soak up the scenery along designated walking, cycling, and driving trails, or admire it all from high above on a hot-air balloon ride. Whatever your interest, there is so much to see and do in the Barossa.
