Food and Wine

Rich in history and bursting with the nation’s most renowned names in wine, the Barossa region produces richly textured and generous styles, like the world-famous Shiraz. Barossan cuisine can be found around every corner and a local favourite is Hentley Farm for a unique wine and food experience! Every Saturday morning, locals turn out to source the very best from local producers at the Barossa Farmers market. Beer lovers will also find unique flavours to savour. The Barossa Brewing Company and Barossa Valley Brewing are two micro-breweries that produce fantastic local beers and offer brewery tours.

 


Stunning Scenery

The rolling hills of the Barossa Ranges overlook a colourful patchwork of vineyards and picture book villages, with historic churches, stone buildings and cottages to explore. Trails, reserves and the famous Seppeltsfield palm avenue make the Barossa a perfect romantic escape. The leafy hills and valleys have inspired many local artists and galleries are sprinkled throughout the region.

 

Homesteads and Gardens

The Barossa’s towns and villages are full of heritage charm and characters with stories to tell. Make the baroque style Chateau Barrosa your first stop. Located at Lyndoch, the chateau offers daily tastings of their unique grape nectars, syrups, and very popular grape liqueurs. The antiques museum is full of paintings, furniture and porcelain and the whole property is surrounded by a 30 acre rose garden. Follow the flocks of birds and butterflies to the Lyndoch Lavender Farm, a working farm with more than 2.5 hectares of blossoms to enjoy. Collingrove Homestead offers guest accommodation set on 14 acres of manicured gardens and paddocks.
