Barossa Valley - South Australia
The Barossa Valley is one of Australia's major destinations, being known all over the world for its quality wines. A home to many major wine producers this area produces over half of the countries wine. To the east flows the Murray River which is one of the largest river systems in the world.

Irrigation introduced in 1887 transformed the northern section into lush paradise with a wide variety of attractions, from watersports to wildlife and of course delicious fruits and wine.
The Barossa Valley was first settled by European Immigrants more than 165 years ago, and is now a thriving, world renowned wine community.

With around 500 grape growing families, much sixth generation, many continue today to supply nearly 60,000 tonnes of grapes to about 50 winemakers - including popular household names like Seppelt, Penfolds and Lehmann it's no surprise the Barossa is one of the world's leading wine regions.

The Barossa is the wine capital of Australia, a tranquil friendly place, where you can share a drink with the people who actually make the region's world class wines. The Barossa has a typical Mediterranean climate with dry summers and mild winters making it an idyllic place to enjoy a relaxing holiday in Australia’s own wine region.
