The Barossa Valley is known as the wine capital of Australia, a place where you can get a real taste for the finer things in life. Situated one-hour drive north of Adelaide, this area is a richly textured, cultural icon based on years of tradition, creative energy and community pride.
The Barossa Valley is a relaxed and friendly place, where you can share a drink with the people who actually make the region's world class wines. You might meet them at the Barossa's wineries and cellar doors, or you might run into them at restaurants, or on a golf course.
Of course, there's more to the Barossa Valley than just wine. You can browse the local art stores for something special to take home, sit in a friendly cafe and enjoy a brilliant cup of coffee, or get out into the countryside and stretch your legs with a walk in a national park. Take the Living Heritage Trail. Wander through historic chateaus. Drive past ancient vines.
Some of the best Barossa holiday experiences happen when you've got a local leading the way. This famed wine region offers you helicopter tours, balloon rides, cycle tours, private guided tours and more. They're just some of the many ways to discover the cellar doors, gourmet retreats, scenery and history of the Barossa.
