Following on from my previous posts on South Australia (Glenelg, Fleurieu Peninsula & Victor Harbour), we made our way to the Barossa Valley from Victor Harbour with a drop off into Port Elliot along the way.
It was a pleasant drive, we stopped off in a few different places along the way reaching the Barossa mid afternoon. The Barossa Valley is made up of a few towns joined by the Barossa Valley Way, namely Nuriootpa, Tanunda, Lyndoch and Rowland Flat. It is 60kms north east of Adelaide. it is a major wine producing area of Australia.
I have put together a montage of the valley.
Another thing that struck me whilst there was all the signs to different wineries, old advertisements on buildings and other interesting places.
We stayed in Greenock which was just a few kilometres from the main areas. As they say in the Barossa “everything is just a few kilometres from anything”. I highly recommend staying in the B&B there – Greenock’s old telegraph station house. It was most comfortable with two bedrooms, a small kitchen, lounge area and large bathroom. A fantastic little place to come home to each night.
