Best things to do in the Barossa (especially for non-wine drinkers)

Heading out to one of South Australia’s beautiful wine regions like the Barossa can sound a little boring if you aren’t that into wine or if you are travelling with kids.  But we would like to introduce you to just a few spectacular spots in the Barossa that are sure to tickle everyone’s fancy, even the non-wine drinkers.

Steins Taphouse – Located in Nuriootpa, this taphouse has it all for those who prefer beer and cider over wine, with 14 continuously rotating Australian craft beer and cider taps, or grab yourself some spirits or wine along with their all day American style menu. Enjoy a smorgasbord of goodies on the deck, listening to the music and taking in the beauty of the Barossa.

Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop – This Barossa icon is somewhere everyone can enjoy – from the generous free samples of Maggie Beer products, to Maggie’s own ice-cream, to home-style cafe food plus a huge pond full of turtles! Take the kids on a nature walk around the gorgeous emerald green pond, followed by homemade cake or ice cream, and you won’t hear too many complaints about their day out in the Barossa!

The Barossa Valley Cheese Co. – Located in Angaston on the Main Street, drop in and explore the wonderful array of cheeses, condiments and complimentary artisan products. If you are feeling a little peckish, grab yourself a delicious cheese platter that’s available for purchase.

Vintners Bar & Grill – Located just down the road from Saltram Winery, this restaurant is nestled amongst vineyards with alfresco or formal dining options (dependent on weather). They specialise in giving a modern twist to new and traditional ingredients from across South Australia. Vintner’s have also won many awards, including Best Regional Restaurant so you really can be certain that you are going to enjoy an amazing meal.

This is just a selection of the wonderful places we visit on our Barossa Valley Day tour – come join us for a memorable day out with your friends and family!
