Barossa Valley (Australia)

Barossa Valley Travel Guide and Trip Resources


Kyle Taylor

Australia's premier wine region

Barossa Valley is Australia's most famous wine region
North-east of Adelaide
150 wineries, many of which are open for tastings

Head north-east from Adelaide and you drive into the Barossa Valley.

This is one of the world's and certainly Australia's prime wine region, most renowned for its Shiraz wines and also of Jacob's Creek fame (yours truly has lived in both Europe and Asia and has rarely seen a supermarket that didn't sell a bottle).

The area was first settled in the mid 19th century by German immigrants, so in the small towns around you find sober looking Lutheran churches and other historic buildings; a kind of old-world charm you don't easily find elsewhere near here. Besides tasting wine and eating fresh produce just off the fields, you will spend your time here driving, hiking or cycling around the wine trails. [Review by travelindicator]
