The Barossa Valley is one of Australia’s premier wine-growing regions. Located just 50 minutes from Adelaide the towns of Tanunda, Angaston and Nuriootpa are historic towns of the region and should be included on your Staycation Barossa Valley itinerary. Apart from 6 stunning winery accommodations, we will share with you some of the best tours available from wine tastings, lunches and even a hot air balloon flight over the vineyards with breakfast. You will fall in love with the Barossa, just as much as we have over the years of visiting.
How many days should you allow to visit the region? At least a minimum of 4 days, ideally a week.
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.
