The Barossa Trail

About the Walking Trail

Explore the Barossa’s premium food, wine and rich heritage with this high quality sealed walking and cycling trails that extend 40 kilometres from Angaston to Gawler via the three main townships of Nuriootpa, Tanunda and Lyndoch.

The path is ideal for intimately exploring the natural beauty of this magnificent region at your own pace. Travel as little or as much of the path as you like in either direction, enjoying stunning views, attractions and generous Barossa hospitality every step of the way.

Walk a shorter section and take in some wineries along the way. The section between Tanunda and Nuriootpa is good for wineries visits. This flatter section would be wheelchair friendly. The whole trail would be pram/pusher friendly.
