Barossa for Families

As tantalizing as cellar door hopping all day is, you do have to keep the kids busy (not boozy). There are quite a few activities that will appeal to all members of the family, so take a look at our suggestions below.

If you’re not the planning type, then we recommend just taking the kids to the Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park near Tanunda. Nestled amongst the Barossa Ranges, the Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park has been voted as one of the ten best things to do in the Barossa. The area can be explored on foot to give you the best experience of interacting with the native birds, animals and plant life which the region is full of.

Dusk and early mornings are the best time to observe the park’s wildlife. But if getting the kids up is a struggle, be on the look out for kangaroos feeding on the open grasslands in the late afternoon, while the occasional echidna or possum may be seen foraging for food at dusk.

Day 1: The Whispering Wall, Performance by Norm's Coolies and the Barossa Farmers Market

The Whispering Wall has acoustic effects that allow you to whisper at one end, and have a friend hear your whisper more than 100 metres away – kids will love testing its abilities.

Watch a cute and clever sheepdog performance by Norm’s Coolies – see the love between Norm and his faithful companions as they win the hearts of the audience.

Each Saturday the Barossa Farmers market is a family friendly place for a stroll and to sample local produce.

Day 2: Angaston's Lego Man, Menglers Hill Lookout, Mawson Trail

Visit The Lego Man in Angaston and see Tom Lucieer’s remarkable collection of Lego models.

Take in the view from Menglers Hill Lookout and Sculpture Park.

Hire some bikes and hit the high roads on the famous Mawson Trail, or pedal alongside vineyards on the Barossa Bike Path between Tanunda and Nuriootpa.

Day 3: Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park, Tanunda, Gomersal Wines, Lyndoch Lavender Farm

Come face to face with kangaroos in Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park.

Sample fun flavoured ice-cream including Shiraz, Cabernet and quince at Tanunda’s Ice Creamery, opposite Tanunda Hotel.

Visit Gomersal Wines and spend time with the kids in their fun adventure playground.

Visit the perfumed acres, gift shop and café of the award-winning Lyndoch Lavender Farm.

Day 4: Departure
