Touring the Famous Barossa Valley

Plan your visit to Australia’s most respected and awarded wine producing area, with a rich cultural history, glorious seasonal landscapes and food traditions all its own.

This is the must-see destination for lovers of Australian wine. 

It’s our most famous wine producing area and thanks to the early European settlers, it boasts some of the oldest vineyards in the world.

The Barossa Valley is best known for its ripe, rich red wines produced at over 100 wineries dotted amongst a picturesque canvas of rolling hills, fertile vineyards and historic villages.  It also has a strong and continuing religious and cultural legacy of Lutheran churches, brass bands, choirs and community festivals. 

Traditional German sausages, artisan bread, tasty cheeses, olives and orchard fruits provide the perfect ingredients for a picnic lunch, or you can enjoy the best of the Barossa Valley’s food heritage at one of its many delightful restaurants and cellar doors.
