Barossa Family Holidays
Not just for grown-ups!
The Barossa Reservoir is held back by the Whispering Wall at Williamstown. This local landmark got its name due to its amazing acoustics. A whisper from one end is clearly heard at the other more than 100 metres away. Try it yourself!
Fossick for gold, opal, garnet, diamonds and other gems at the Mount Crawford Forest Reserve. A little different to other conservation parks, this one is in the heart of a historic mining area. You never know what you might find!
It’s a gem
Even if your search for sparkles comes up empty-handed, the park is fabulous for bushwalking, cycling and horse riding. It has some fantastic spots for picnicking or camping. Look out for those old mine shafts!
Walk through nature in the Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park near Tanunda. It's been voted as one of the ten best things to do in the Barossa. There are breathtaking views from the top of the Barossa Ranges. The park is full of native birds, animals and plant life. Explore the region on foot and stay overnight in Rossiter's Hut.
In good taste
For some refreshments, head to Tanunda's Ice Creamery, opposite the Tanunda Hotel. Try the delicious Shiraz, Cabernet or quince flavours.
You can take in a bird’s-eye view of the whole Barossa with a helicopter tour!
Hire a bike and cycle along the Barossa Bike Path or the Mawson Trail.
