Enjoy a wonderful bird’s eye view at sunrise of the Barossa and the near-by Barossa Ranges.  On a clear day views of the Gulf are possible. From the landing site you will head to the nearest picnic spot for a gourmet breakfast (including sparkling wine) featuring a selection of the finest Barossa foods.  Please note departure is entirely weather dependant.

Barossa Helicopters
Hoffnungsthal Road Lyndoch, (08) 85244 830
What a great way to get an appreciation of the landscape that produces our fabulous ‘Big Red’.  You can choose from a cheap and cheerful 10 minute jaunt to a full day helicopter pub crawl!  Highly recommended.

Barossa Trikes
Nuriootpa.  Call Tony 0438 623 342
What a zippy way to see the valley.  There are a variety of tours from a couple of hours to a romantic sun set tour to a full day out.  Yes you will be suffering from helmet hair by the end of your trip, but who cares when you are having this much fun!!

Endota Spa (Novotel Barossa Valley Resort)
Rowland Flat (08) 85240071 or
International standard spa with all of what you would expect from massage to facials with plenty of signature treatments.  This is a perfect way to spend the afternoon if you are looking to dry out or ideal for couples for that special weekend away.

Farmers Market
Saturday Mornings: 7.30 to 11.30
Crn Nuriootpa and Stockwell Rds, halfway between Nuriootpa and Angaston
There is no doubt you will want to take advantage of our outdoor dining area in Summer or our cosy indoor facilities in Winter.   In any case a stop at the Farmers Market will provide you the ideal opportunity to stock up on the best produce that the season has to offer.  If you don’t feel like cooking yourself breakfast head down to the Farmers Market for bacon and eggs or my favourite coffee, and any of the vast variety of sweets and savouries by the dozens of local producers who have a stall at the market every week. You may even bump into Maggie Beer, Miguel Maestra, Pete Evans or another celebrity chef filming a new episode for their show!.

Lyndoch Lavender Farm
Cnr Hoffnungsthal and Tweedies Gully Roads, between Lyndoch and Williamstown (08) 8524 4538
A great place to stop for morning or afternoon tea in the outdoor café.  Tours are also available all year round or treat yourself to the picturesque sunset with a glass of bubbles.  If you ever though that lavender was just to make things smell nice then you will be surprised at the vast array of products available at the farm shop.

Penfolds Wine Lab
Nuriootpa (08) 8568 9408
Make Your Own Blend
After a tour of the winery and wine cellars, guests are invited to the Winemakers’ Laboratory, to try blending their own wine from Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre, like Penfolds’ own Bin 138. The wine is then presented to take home in a personalised bottle.

Seppeltsfield History Tours
Seppeltsfield Road, Seppeltsfield.  Bookings essential 08 8568 6217
Winery Tour – ‘how dull’ I hear you say, ‘not so’ I must respond! Seppeltsfield is a must see in the Barossa and where I would normally never recommend a ‘winery tour’ their range of short historic tours through to the centenary tour (including a tasting of the 100 year old para) are definitely worth while. Trust me!

Two Hands Master Class
Marananga (08) 8562 4566 or email

Tanunda Pines Golf Course
