How to Spend 1 Day in the Barossa Valley

How to Spend 1 Day in the Barossa Valley

South Australia’s most prestigious wine region is a popular day trip from Adelaide. If you’ve only got one day in Barossa Valley, it’s likely wine tasting is your priority, so hire a private driver or join a guided tour to maximize your time. Here’s the best way to spend one day in Barossa Valley. 

Morning: Admire the Scenery

The lush countryside and rolling vineyards of the Barossa Valley are hailed as some of  South Australia’s most scenic landscapes. That being said, the best views are undoubtedly from above, so start the day with a sunrise hot-air balloon or helicopter ride over the vineyards.

After landing, tuck into a breakfast inspired by regional specialties and accompanied by sparkling wine—the perfect introduction to the region’s gastronomic delights. 

Afternoon: A Taste of the Barossa Valley

A guided tour is the best way to sample the Barossa Valley wines; it leaves you free to indulge in wine tastings without having to worry about driving. Seppeltsfield, Wolf Blass, Penfolds, and Jacob’s Creek are among the biggest names in the region, and most tours visit at least one of the top wineries, alongside two or three smaller wineries, to give you a comprehensive overview of Barossa’s wines. 

Exact itineraries vary but most tours stop to take in the views from Mengler Hill and sample local produce at the Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop or the Barossa Valley Cheese Company, and include a walk through a vineyard.  

Night: Wine and Dine

Barossa Valley isn’t just famous for its wines—it’s also home to some of South Australia’s best restaurants. Booking a table in advance is essential at the region’s most popular spots, and it’s worth organizing hotel transfers to ensure you can fully enjoy the wine menu.

For the ultimate experience, reserve a table at the Chef's Table at St. Hugo Winery and watch as chefs prepare an 8-course degustation menu. Each gourmet dish is paired with fine wines and you’ll enjoy a guided tour of the wine estate before you sit down to eat.
