The Barossa Valley is home to one of Australia's best wine regions, with it being renowned for its Shiraz grapes. It is the perfect place to discover Australia’s thriving food and wine scene, with many highly-awarded vineyards and cellar doors to sample wines from and delicious local produce. A great way to experience the Barossa Valley is on a cycling holiday.

Besides the food and wine, the Barossa Valley features many heritage villages, snug cafes, fascinating galleries and museums, and stunning views of iconic Australian landscapes. Throughout the Barossa Valley are towns reminiscent of Germany, due to an influx of German settlers in the 19th Century.

The Barossa Valley was formed by the North Para River and is situated about 60km northeast of Adelaide. There is a 40km network of sealed cycling paths between Angaston to Gawler. It’s these cyclist-friendly trails that allow for plenty of sightseeing stops while pedalling at a leisurely pace.
