Barossa Valley Seasons: Summer days are long and sunny, with warm to hot daytime temperatures and slightly cooler evenings. The landscape is lined with green vineyards laden with ripening grapes, orchards are heavy with stone fruit and the patchwork of farmlands turns a light gold. The wine harvest begins late in the season.
Daytime temperatures range from 26-29°C in summer.

Autumn days are easy in the Barossa, with mild days and cooler evenings. The grape harvest continues and orchards yield crops of apples, pears, quinces and figs, and mushrooms spring up in forests making rewarding foraging. The annual Tanunda Agricultural Show is a season highlight for locals and visitors.
Daytime temperatures range from 17-26°C in autumn.

Winter is chilly in the Barossa, making it a perfect time to relax by a crackling open fire with a glass of the region’s signature shiraz. The landscape is wintry, with vines pruned and the many deciduous trees bare. It’s a wonderful season for brisk walks, wine tasting and long, decadent dining.
Daytime temperatures range from 12-16°C in winter.

Spring in the Barossa is fine, with warmer days signalling buds to burst on the vineyards, bright green leaves to spread along the wines and fruit trees to blossom in pinks, whites and reds. It’s a season to enjoy outdoor activities alongside wine tasting and long, al fresco lunches.
Daytime temperatures range from 17-24°C in spring.

Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia, is a vibrant and culturally rich destination with a huge variety of local travel options for you to explore. Here are a few suggestions for things to do and see in Adelaide:

  1. Take a stroll through the Adelaide Botanic Garden: This stunning garden is home to a diverse range of plants and flowers, as well as the Bicentennial Conservatory, which houses exotic plants from around the world.
  2. Visit the Adelaide Central Market: This bustling market is a great place to sample local produce and delicacies, and to find unique gifts and souvenirs.
  3. Visit the Art Gallery of South Australia: This gallery houses a wide range of artworks, including Australian and international paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts.
  4. Take a day trip to Kangaroo Island: This beautiful island is located off the coast of South Australia and is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including kangaroos, sea lions, and echidnas. It also offers visitors the opportunity to swim with dolphins and seals and visit a variety of beaches and lighthouses.
  5. Visit the historic village of Hahndorf: Located in the Adelaide Hills, this charming village is Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement and offers visitors a glimpse into the area’s rich history and culture.
  6. Visit the Adelaide Oval: This historic stadium is home to a variety of sports and events, including cricket and Australian Rules football, and offers visitors the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the facilities.
  7. Visit the National Wine Centre of Australia in central Adelaide: This facility is dedicated to promoting Australian wine and offers visitors the opportunity to taste a wide range of local wines and learn about the region’s winemaking history and culture.

Wine has been a way of life in Barossa Valley since 1842. Fast forward to today, and Barossa is home to more than 550 grape growing families, many with the sixth generation still working the same plot of land, supplying quality grapes to more than 170 wine companies.
The best Barossan wines sit comfortably alongside the great wines of the world. Barossa Shiraz and Eden Valley Riesling have led the way as regional heroes, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro, Grenache, Semillon and Fortified wines all contributing to Barossa’s standing as Australia’s global wine region.
Barossa incorporates both the Barossa Valley and Eden Valleys, making it one of the only wine regions in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions. With such a diversity of growing conditions and soil types across both valleys, and vineyards that have been tended by hand for many generations, you are bound to find a wine to call your own.

Hot air balloons are often seen gracefully gliding over the vineyards in the early morning light in the Barossa, making an unforgettable start to the day. The scenic flight takes in spectacular views over the Barossa Ranges that stretch across the landscape to capture glimpses of the sparkling ocean in the distance. Sparkling wine optional (or essential!).

Gin Tasting…The spirit of the Barossa and South Australia! Just up the road from The Louise, the Seppeltsfield Road Distillers have created a great range of small batch spirits, flavoured with local botanicals. The distillery is a must-visit for gin lovers, with tastings and grazing platters available for a light bite.

Cooking Classes Famous for its owner Maggie Beer, The Farm Eatery comprises a restaurant that showcases fresh local produce and a shop that features Maggie Beer’s extensive range of gourmet treats. An Experiences Centre is set up especially for cooking classes, run by Chef Tim Bourke, formerly chef at sister South Australian property Southern Ocean Lodge.
