Barossa Valley Holidays

The Barossa Valley is a major wine producing region located approximately 60 kilometres to the north-east of Adelaide. Taking its name from the Barossa Ranges, the three major towns are Tanunda; where heavily Germanic influences are still evident today, Angaston; predominantly home to Cornish miners and Nuriootpa; which today is the commercial hub of the Barossa Valley. Enjoy lunch at one of the regions flagship wineries, surrounded by the stunning scenery of rolling hills, taste the local produce of the world famous vineyards or tour the boutique breweries in the area.

Barrossa Valley wine tours are what this region is all about; famous for being one of the world’s greatest wine regions, it is well known among food and wine enthusiasts. Take a trip to drink in all the cultural experiences and ease yourself into the area’s laid back atmosphere.

Barossa Valley highlights

There are plenty of things to do in Barossa Valley, with wine events in abundance. The Adelaide Crush Festival in January is a celebration of summer with delicious regional cuisine and fine wines. Aussie Wine Month is great for enjoying the diversity of Australian wines and you can delight in the Yarra Valley’s best wineries at Reap And Relish. If you’re looking for an unforgettable gastronomic experience, Barossa hosts a gourmet weekend in the month of August that is hard to beat. Over 20 wineries proudly showcase their premium wines and this is your opportunity to sample some fantastic pairings of regional produce and celebrated restaurants, accompanied by some of the best live entertainment in South Australia. 

Barrossa Valley holidays are great for families too and there are plenty of family friendly activities surrounding the gourmet weekend, with free entry to the event. You just pay for the food and wine when you get there.  Less than one hour’s drive from Adelaide, it’s very accessible and a shuttle bus will transport you around all the participating wineries.

With around 150 wineries and cellar doors, you will be spoilt for choice in the Barossa Valley. We recommend exploring the area for its fresh seasonal produce and award-winning restaurants. Take to a car or bicycle to explore the numerous food and wine trails or perhaps even tour the region by motorbike, vintage car, hot air balloon or helicopter. When you fancy a change of pace, you can choose to relax and unwind in a spa for the day or play a round of golf on one of the championship courses.

Hop aboard a mini-bus for a Barossa Valley wine tour. You'll visit all the famous vineyards and get to enjoy the best views of this scenic area, and best of all, someone else will drive!
