Sensational spring in the Barossa
to spend more time outdoors, soaking up the sunshine and filling your lungs with fresh Barossa air.
Yes, there’s countless reasons to visit the Barossa and spring is the perfect time to head outdoors and explore the Barossa at your own pace.
The Barossa is best by bike. With a 40km high-quality sealed cycling and walking network that extends from Angaston to Gawler taking you past numerous cellar doors, cafes and restaurants it really is a great way to see the Barossa. There’s also a number of gravel road rides throughout the region for those who are looking for more of an off-road cycling adventure.
Or if running is your thing, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to experience the best new desitation on the running calendar with the Runaway Barossa Marathon on 21 October. The region’s rolling hills, scenic vineyard landscapes and undulating event course, offers a various mix of running terrain with a combination of running on-road, bike trails and through vineyards.
Choose from the full marathon, the half marathon, 10km run or 2km kids run and then kick back and enjoy the post marathon celebrations at the finish line at Peter Lehmann Wines, Tanunda.
Perhaps you’re wanting to explore the region at a much slower pace? Discover the myriad of picturesque walking trails dotted throughout the region including Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park, Mount Crawford Forest, Warren Conservation Park, Barossa Goldfields and the famous Whispering Wall.
Or why not indulge and treat yourself to a more relaxing Barossa experience, complete with quality food and wine. Our Butcher, Baker, Winemaker trail is a self-drive meander of discovery through the Barossa’s famous food and wine producers and it allows you to explore the region at your own pace.
