The Barossa Valley is a stunning part of Australia famed for its winemaking heritage, incredible scenery, and delicious foodie delights. Throughout sprawling patchwork hills, there are charming Bavarian-inspired towns, beautiful vineyards, and a hearty dose of history that you can get under the skin of on our Barossa tours for $99.
This old German settlement boasts a rich history, inspired by Bavarian design and culture. Here, you can tuck into authentic German dishes, sip beer in classic pubs that hark back to the early days, and stroll through the cobbled streets dipping in and out of cute little craft shops and sipping on hot drinks outside picturesque cafes.
Dry Creek Salt Crystallization Pans
After we cruise through the plush homesteads of North Adelaide, we reach the Dry Creek Salt Crystallization Pans, where you can marvel at the sprawling landscape and eclectic selection of wildlife, keeping your eyes peeled for some of Australia’s native critters.
Our first Barossa wine encounter will take place at the Seppeltsfield Estate, where you can sample some local ports and enjoy the beautiful backdrop.
We’ll also visit one of the world’s best-known wineries, Jacobs Creek. You’ll get to take a guided tour of the visitor centre, where you’ll learn all about the history of winemaking here and take a tutored wine tasting session.
We’ll refuel at lunchtime with an Aussie feast at Barossa Chateau, after which we’ll take a quick tour of the Hermann Thumm collection in the private museum on-site.
When you’ve browsed the fascinating collection, we’ll take a stroll through the rose garden at the chateau as our lunch goes down, soaking up the peaceful atmosphere and the stunning sights.
After stopping off in Hahndorf for some shopping and coffee sipping, we’ll head back to Adelaide via the Adelaide Hills, passing through charming villages Crafers, Stirling, Aldgate, and Bridgewater.
We’ll finish up in Adelaide where your day of wine tasting, perusing quaint towns, and digging deep into the cultural history of the Barossa Valley unfortunately comes to an end.
By this point, you’ll have experienced the delicious flavours the region is known for, have learned more about the winemaking history that is so important to Barossa, and have picked up a souvenir or two in one of the cute Bavarian-inspired villages that nestle in the rolling hills of the Valley.
