General Information about the Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is a major wine-producing region and tourist destination of South Australia, located 60km northeast of Adelaide. The wine industry plays a major role in the Barossa, being the main source of employment for many residents. The many hectares of vineyard are the most distinctive feature of the area, especially when viewed from the Mengler Hill lookout positioned on the range of hills that form one side of the valley itself.

With 150 wineries and more than 70 cellar doors, there is certainly a lot to see, sip and taste in the Barossa Valley. Half of the cellar doors are open to the public, but most of the others happily open their doors on appointment.

The magic of the Barossa region lies in its diversity of growing conditions. The Eden Valley produces distinctive cool-climate wine varieties, while the region's flagship shiraz is grown in the warmer, low-lying Barossa Valley. Add abundant seasonal produce, artisan food producers and award-winning restaurants and you can see why the Barossa is a gourmand's dream destination.
