What You Can Expect

Barossa Valley with Hahndorf Tour from Adelaide

The German Village of Hahndorf

After boarding your coach with your knowledgeable guide, your Barossa Valley day trip from Adelaide starts with the drive out of the city, following a scenic route that takes you along the River Torrens and through Torrens Gorge.

When you’ve been on the road for about an hour, make a stop at Seppeltsfield Winery, which dates back to 1851 and is home to 250 acres (100 hectares) of vineyards covered with Barossa Valley’s traditional grapes, grenache and shiraz. Then make your way to Jacob’s Creek, one of Australia’s best-known wineries, dating back to 1847 when a Bavarian immigrant planted the valley’s first commercial vineyard. Enjoy a walking tour through the display vineyard to learn about the winery’s 14 varietals of grapes before your guided wine tasting.

Continue your tour to Menglers Hill Lookout for a view of farms and vineyard-covered hills across the valley, and check out the Barossa Sculpture Park to see statues made out of local granite and marble. Then make your way to Barossa Chateau, known for its 22 acres (9 hectares) of rose gardens that are home to more than 30,000 roses. Go inside to admire the chateau’s ballroom and its collection of art and antiquities from the 1700s and 1800s, such as porcelain from high-end producers like Stinton, Meissen, Worchester and Chelsea.

Next, walk over to the restaurant for your 2-course lunch (wine is not included but may be purchased), and enjoy another wine tasting at Creed Wines, also located on the property. Then say goodbye to the Barossa Valley as you return to your coach for the drive to Hahndorf, a quaint town in the Adelaide Hills and the oldest surviving German settlement in the country. Hop off the coach to walk around, taking in the century-old elm trees, charming cottages, shops and tea rooms.

Your tour ends with the return drive to Adelaide, traveling through the lush hills and villages like Stirling and Bridgewater before you arrive back in the city in the evening.

Wonderful! A small group tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide. Both wineries were fantastic. The highlight of Hahndorf was the local museum with all the old artifacts and history of the town.

We enjoyed the wine tasting at Speltfield and Jacob's Creek. The latter was very educational in respect of what to look for when wine tasting. The organised Lunch was very good at the Chateau we stopped at. The tour had 17 participants which was a nice size for all the events.

Hahndorf was a throw back to the past.
