Rowland Flat

Population: 362

For a small town of 362 people, Rowland Flat certainly offers a wide range of exceptional experiences to its guests. Visitors will be rewarded for pulling off the main highway and spending some time in this historic precinct.

Rowland Flat is inextricably linked with the history of winemaking in the Barossa. It began in 1847 when William Jacob planted the first commercial vineyard on the banks of an unnamed creek that would one day bear his name and become recongised the world over. Today, the Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre is a wonderful introduction to the Barossa with a range of tours, behind-the-scenes walks, cooking classes and sensory experiences to explore. Their restaurant boasts spectacular views, abundant local produce and, as you would expect, an expansive winelist.

Also offering a range of food and wine experiences is Lou Miranda Estate, where Lou’s generous Italian hospitality is on full display. Liebichwein and Jenke Vineyards are both small, family owned cellar doors steeped in history and offer a range of unique blends.

For those who fall under the enchantment of Rowland Flat, the Novotel Barossa Valley Resort offers a range of accommodation options as well as the indulgence of an Endota Spa. And the Tanunda Pines Golf Course means you can work off a little indulgence with a round or two.
