Things to do in the Barossa

Things to do in the Barossa

There are many great things to do and see in the Barossa; it’s hard to know where to begin. We thought we’d help you out with some trusted tips and recommendations from members of our team who live and breathe the region. Whether you’re a foodie or an activity seeker, add these places to your itinerary along with any of our Yalumba experiences for an immersive Barossa getaway!


To complement a full day of wine tasting and sightseeing, the food you eat should be just as delicious as the wine you are tasting. We have some friends nearby who love good quality produce as much as we do. Here’s a list of some of our favourites!

Vintners Bar and Grill

A Yalumba family favourite for many years, Vintners is one of the Barossa’s longest operating restaurants. Nestled amongst vineyards, the award-winning venue has multiple dining options to suit every season, including a beautiful alfresco setting with charming views of the vineyards. A favourite amongst staff, you might spot some familiar faces on your visit!

The Barossa Valley Cheese Company

A one-stop shop for all things cheese and charcuterie, and a short five-minute drive from Yalumba, in the main street of Angaston. You can find all of the delicious cheeses that we serve on our Yalumba Cooper’s Platters, so take note of what you like when you’re here and grab some for the trip home. You can even linger in the store over a cheese plate and a glass of wine.

Hive Barossa

With a focus on fresh produce from local growers, there’s no surprise that this is a firm favourite of our team here at Yalumba. A more casual dining experience, Hive is a great spot to grab lunch or a coffee before a big day of sightseeing. If you can’t decide from their extensive menu, we recommend the halloumi burger!

Casa Carboni

Another Yalumba favourite, Matteo and Fiona Carboni serve up authentic Italian food made with fresh local produce. The pair moved to the Barossa in 2012 from Parma in Northern Italy and opened their restaurant in Angaston. If you want the whole experience, sign up for one of their incredible cooking classes which Matteo hosts at the restaurant or, sit back and enjoy the gastronomic experience. Matteo’s legendary Torrone Morbido (soft nougat) is a must!

Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park Walking Trails

For those that like to get up close and personal with nature, there are two great walks in the conservation park worth trialling, with beautiful views, perfect for increasing endorphins and taking in some fresh air. For a moderate trek, there is the 2.7km circuit called the Stringybark Hike, which will take you about an hour to complete. The second walk is the Wallowa Hike, which runs along the Heysen Trail and is 10.5km, estimating 2 hours to complete. If you want to include some exercise into your trip to the Barossa, this is a perfect way to do it.
