You will fall in love with the Barossa Valley, just as much as we have over the years of visiting. Now, which Barossa Valley accommodation will you choose for your next Barossa Valley getaway?
How many days should you allow to visit the Barossa Valley?
At least a minimum of 4 days, ideally a week, you could also include a night or two in Adelaide at the beginning and the end of your trip.
We have visited many wine regions throughout the world and in Australia and have stayed in various accommodations in nearby towns and in the wineries themselves.
Our preference these days is to choose accommodation within a winery for the views and the ability to be able to taste wine without the hassle of driving. If there is a restaurant attached, that is definitely a bonus!
Did you know that the Barossa Valley is made up of two regions – the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley? Barossa Valley is well-known for its Shiraz and Eden Valley is well-known for its Riesling.
