Tour of the Week: Barossa Valley & Hahndorf Wine Tour $99


The Barossa Valley is by far one of the most spectacular wine regions in the whole of Australia. Boasting a landscape of lush wineries, picturesque villages, and swathes of glorious greenery, it is the perfect place to relax and soak up the charm of Australia.

Our Barossa Valley tours give you the chance to explore all of this and more, taking you back to the 19th century via the stone cottages and Lutheran churches that are still standing from the arrival of the German settlers – an important part of the region’s rich history.

The Whispering Wall
On the first stop outside of Adelaide, we’ll check out the Whispering Wall, a 9-story high dam that plays out surreal acoustics with the help of the water.

Chateau Yaldera



Next, we’ll head on to our first winery. You may well recognise this chateau, as it is one of the most photographed buildings in Southern Australia. We’ll stop here so you can take some of your own snapshots before sampling some of the local wine and marvelling at the incredible views.

Jacobs Creek

Though it is known for its wine, Jacobs Creek is also a beautiful creek that snakes its way through the heart of the valley. Alongside it, we’ll stop off at Tanunda, a cute township with a handful of artisan shops and stylish cafes.

Local Produce Lunch

A trip to the Barossa Valley wouldn’t be complete without a local produce lunch. We’ll head to the Peter Lehmann Winery, where you can tuck into a hearty array of meats, cheeses, and freshly baked bread.

Langmeil

Once refuelled, we’ll move on to the oldest Shiraz winery in the world, where you can sample the rich flavours and check out the views at the Mengler’s Hill Lookout. From here,
you can soak up the sweeping views of the valley before we make our way to the iconic Seppeltsfield Winery where you’ll have the chance to try the local flavours.

Murray Street Vineyards

The day comes to and end at Murray Street Vineyards where, once again, you can sample some of the local tipple and grill Andrew Seppelt, a celebrity in the winemaking world in Australia, about the winemaking process.

Filled with wine and good food, we’ll head back through the stunning countryside of the valley back to Adelaide, where the day of touring and tasting unfortunately comes to an end.
