Barossa Cycle Short Break Trip highlights

  • Enjoy the independence of self-guided cycling with all logistics taken care of for you
  • Cycle the Barossa east to west then return along the full length of the Barossa Rail Trail

The Barossa Valley is one of Australia’s most celebrated wine regions, yet its appeal extends far beyond the cellar door. Explore the Barossa Valley by bike on this short but rewarding trip. Cycle through many notable towns such as Lyndoch, Tanunda, Nuriootpa and Angaston, as well as the iconic Barossa Rail Trail. You'll also have the chance to taste some of the delicious wines this beautiful region produces, plus you'll get to witness the fabulous old architecture and rich history this region of South Australia has to offer. With your luggage transferred, logistics sorted and accommodation booked, all you need to do is pedal your bike and enjoy.



Today you'll be transferred from your Adelaide CBD location to the township of Lyndoch to begin your Barossa Valley cycle. Lyndoch in the southern Barossa is one of the oldest towns in South Australia and located amongst rolling vineyards with the Barossa ranges rising to the east. You'll start your journey from here and pass through the renowned Barossa townships of Tanunda and Nuriootpa arriving in Angaston to the east. Along the way there is an almost limitless array of wineries, funky cafes, fine restaurants and places of interest to punctuate your day. Passing through Tanunda a visit to iconic Chateau Tanunda, Australia's largest and oldest Château is well worth a detour. The building is renown for its remarkable period architecture and is built from bluestone quarried at nearby Bethany. A visit to celebrity chief Maggie Beer’s Farm just to the north is also recommended or perhaps discover a unique blend of wine at one of many small boutique wineries dotted throughout the Barossa. Overnight in Angaston. Ascent: 303m Descent: 172m

Meals:  Nil

An outstanding day today as you traverse this acclaimed wine region from east to west cycling the full length of the Barossa Trail from Angaston to Gawler just to the north of Adelaide. The trail follows sections of the old Gawler Angaston Rail line as well as purpose built cycle trails. The traditional owners of the Barossa Valley are the Indigenous Peramangk people and more recently German Lutheran settlers arriving in the Barossa Valley in 1842, settling at Bethany. In early Australian European history some Barossa towns had up to 25 German-speaking inhabitants to every English-speaking person. Much of the Germanic history survives today in the food and winemaking skills of the region. It is a region where immigrants came looking for a better life than the one they left behind and in the harsh South Australian environment created a wine industry of world standing. During your cycle journey through Barossa townships with buildings hewn from stone you get a sense of a unique history and community that is part of the fabric of a multi layered Australian society built by immigrants. You'll be exploring the region by bicycle but there is plenty of opportunity to take a gastronomic journey. From Gawler you will be transferred back to your preferred Adelaide CBD location. Ascent: 196m Descent: 451m
