The Barossa is a region of indulgence. The local wines are award-winning and the local food and produce is gourmet.
Join the hustle and bustle of the Barossa Farmers Market, held in the Vintners Sheds near Angaston. There are more than 30 stalls to wander through and the freshest of local produce available.
Why not grab some direct from the producer? For a memorable Saturday breakfast, try the bacon and egg rolls; real eggs, real bacon and homemade sauce or chutney on freshly baked bread. It's a perfect start to the day!
Maggie Beer's Farm Shop
Explore Maggie Beer's Farm Shop. One of Australia's most loved cooks, Maggie and husband, Colin, have created a collection for all things culinary. Tastings are available, as well as limited edition produce and cooking demonstrations.
Butcher, Baker, Winemaker Trail
Follow the Butcher, Baker, Winemaker Trail and celebrate the distinctive culinary tradition of the Barossa. Tread the same paths as the mid-19th century pioneers, sample olive oil and dukkah, local cheeses, dried apricots and delicious smoked bier sticks. Try them all with a glass of wine.
For a real treat, try the VIP experience. As a VIP, you will receive a great hamper, extra discounts and bonuses along the trail.
Haven't quite found the drop you like? Why not make your own at Penfolds? Blend wine to your particular tastes, using Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre. You can even take a bottle home.
Get away from food and wine for just a moment, the Whispering Wall needs to be seen (or heard) to be believed. The retaining wall of the Barossa Reservoir is curved in just the right way, so if you whisper at one end you'll be heard clearly at the other, more than 100 metres away.
For a family tree with a difference, head to Springton. You'll find The Herbig Tree, a large, hollow red gum that was actually home to Johann Friedrich Herbig, his wife Caroline and the first two of their 16 children.
A little competition
The Barossa is home to the only 10-pin bowling centre that also features a beer garden. It also overlooks an 18-hole mini golf course. It's in Tanunda. There are bumpers for the bowling challenged.
Join the flocks of birds and butterflies and follow your nose to the Lyndoch Lavender Farm. It's a working farm with more than 2.5 hectares of blossoms and the occasional bearded dragon (lizard), who must love flowers.
