Plan your Barossa escape this winter with our top picks

While we may be halfway through the Winter season, there is still time to come out and explore all the Barossa has to offer – even through the cooler months!


While the cooler weather tends to detract some people, the Barossa Valley is a spectacular winter destination – think seasonal produce, crisp fresh air, and adventure waiting to happen.


Explore the local art and culture or sit by the fire with a glass of Shiraz. Your options are endless in the Barossa

Here are our top picks to try this winter in the Barossa.


Cellar door hopping

Have you really been to the Barossa if you didn’t go wine tasting? The Barossa is famed for producing Shiraz, which we think is the perfect drop to drink in front of the campfire. Cellar doors in the Barossa are buzzing this time of year, with new release vintages making many tasting menus. Why not choose a cellar door and cosy up with a cheese platter and glass of red?


Our go-to locations include Artisans of the Barossa – where you can sample wines from eight winemakers under one roof, Whistler Wines, or you can enjoy an exclusive three-hour tasting experience at Tscharke.


Explore arts and culture

The Barossa Valley has a rich history in visual arts, performing arts and crafts. If you want to explore local exhibitions featuring local artists, look no further than The Barossa Regional Gallery, located just off the main street in Tanunda. For fans of contemporary design, we recommend JamFactory in Seppeltsfield, which provides a unique retail experience housed in Seppeltsfield estate’s iconic horse stables.


Shop up a storm

The Barossa Valley is filled with bespoke retail shops featuring beautifully curated goods sourced locally and further afield. Barossa Central Shopping Centre is a short drive from our accommodation services and includes cafes, speciality and gift shops, and groceries. If you are up for a drive, we suggest exploring Tanunda, which features retail outlets with homewares, clothing, antiques, gifts and locally made goods.


Eat the seasons

Indulge your tastebuds with a morning visit to the Barossa Farmers Market. Every Saturday morning in Angaston, this market showcases the best seasonal, fresh, and artisan produce from the Barossa surrounds. After you have explored the markets, we suggest walking up to Vintners Bar & Grill to enjoy locally sourced dishes with a curated wine list – there is a reason why Vintners win awards year after year. Our other top foodie destinations include Linke’s Bakehouse, Fleur Social (especially for those needing a good caffeine hit!), Otherness, Musque, FermentAsian and Ember Pizza.


Explore tranquil scenery

The Barossa is surrounded by tranquil scenery – and the local heritage walks, and trails are the perfect opportunities to experience the beauty and heritage of this region. Some of our top trails include Tanunda Heysen Trail Loop and Barossa Bushgardens.



Once you have finished exploring all that is on offer in the Barossa, we suggest starting the fire back at our campsite, uncorking a bottle of shiraz and taking in the day that was had. We look forward to welcoming you to our region soon.
