Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is located 60 kilometres north east of the Adelaide city centre and is notable as a major wine producing region and tourist destination. It has cool summers and rainy winters which makes it perfectly suited for red wine production, particularly Shiraz and richly flavoured Cabernet.

Located 60 kilometres northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is a major wine producing region and tourist destination. Its cool summers and rainy winters are perfectly suited for red wine production, particularly Shiraz and richly flavoured Cabernet. You will leave the train in Two Wells to embark on your journey of the senses. Travel past flat farm lands before arriving at the picturesque rolling hills of the Barossa Ranges which overlook a colourful patchwork of vineyards, dotted with historic churches, stone buildings and cottages beckoning you to explore.

The hospitality of the local community is memorable from the warm welcome of a cellar door, to the friendly hello and the many stories to be told by the locals, the Barossa Valley will welcome you. Gold Guests visit Seppeltsfield Wines where you will delight in a wine and food tasting experience in their charming Vintage Cellar. After your private tasting, enjoy a short stroll along the Elm Walk across the bridge into the Main Cellar. Here you can enjoy further wine tastings or take time to see the Jam Factory, a contemporary craft and design studio that incorporates both beautiful displays and visual galleries.

Venture on to Yalumba Winery where you will enjoy pre dinner drinks with a Yalumba Wine Ambassador who will take you through the cooperage process. Enjoy a sumptuous dinner served in the enchanting Signature Cellar, where you can sit back, relax and enjoy a glass or two with new friends you have made. Travel back to Adelaide by coach to re-join the Indian Pacific to continue your journey to Perth.
