We have you covered. Here are the things, places and sights we recommend paying some attention to the next time you’re in the Barossa.
Eden Valley Lookout

Hot Air Ballooning
Getting up in the dark at the crack of dawn may sound like the furthest thing from fun. However, when you witness the sun rising over vineyards in a hot air balloon, the early start is worth it!

Barossa Farmers Markets
Open 7:30-11:30am every Saturday, you won’t find fresher produce in the region! Enjoy a coffee while meandering around stalls full of fresh veggies, fruit, cheeses, breads, meats... and the list goes on! Not to be missed.
Barossa Valley Chocolate Company
I mean, it really speaks for itself. But, if you needed any more convincing, it even has a cellar door – because what’s better than a pairing a glass of delicious wine with your favourite choccies?
You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to cellar doors. With a new winery on every corner, there is a drop for every kind of wine lover. Some of our personal favourites are Kellermeister Wines, Hentley Farm, Seppeltsfield Winery and who could go past the ol’ faithful Rockford Wines and Jacobs Creek.
