Exploring the Barossa: Greenock Summer Loving

Summer may be over at the end of this month, but the warm weather will continue for weeks to come.

Greenock is known for its rich history, beautiful landscapes, and, most importantly, as a stunning wine-growing region. It’s a picturesque town just 8 kilometres from our Tourist Park, and for a small village, it’s jam-packed with things for the family to see and do while the sun is shining.

As locals in the region, we’ve got you covered with things to do, including dining, wine tasting, and family-friendly activities. Once you’ve explored every inch of Greenock, you can return to our Park for a swim or relax with a glass of Greenock wine while watching the kids play.


Where to Eat

Greenock Tavern is a historic and charming spot that offers a cozy dining experience with a menu featuring local produce. Known as The Greenock, it’s a great place to enjoy traditional Australian pub food with a modern twist.

El Estanco is a unique cafe that blends local ingredients with international culinary techniques, offering a diverse menu that caters to all palates. Their commitment to sustainability and locally sourced ingredients makes it a must-visit for foodies.


Taste Wine

Greenock is nestled in the heart of the Barossa Valley, a world-renowned wine-producing region. Here are a couple of standout wineries that we love to visit.

Murray Street Vineyards offers a stunning setting for wine tasting, with premium wines showcasing the region’s terroir. The staff provides informative tastings, making it a perfect stop for wine lovers and casual drinkers.

Kalleske Wines is famous for its organic and biodynamic practices. Kalleske Wines provides a unique tasting experience, and their wines reflect the Greenock terroir. The cellar door often hosts events and tastings that delve into the winemaking process.


Playgrounds and Family Activities

Besides being a great place to eat, The Greenock has a garden area out back that is a lovely spot for parents to relax and sip while children run around in a safe and fun environment. One piece of advice – bring your cricket set, as there is plenty of room to play!

Seppeltsfield Estate is on the outskirts of Greenock, and while primarily known for its wine, it is also a family-friendly destination with vast grounds to explore. They often have family-oriented events and activities, making it a good choice for a day out with children.

Greenock Centenary Park has sports facilities, BBQ facilities, play equipment and shelter, and it is an excellent place to settle in for the afternoon with your tribe and enjoy some outdoor fun. And don’t leave your furry friend at home – the oval is dog-friendly!
