You might have explored the Barossa by car, but what about pedalling around on two wheels instead? The Barossa Trail
provides you with the opportunity to do exactly that.
Your cycling adventure will unfold against a picturesque backdrop all the way from Gawler to Angaston. You'll pass through the townships of Lyndoch, Tanunda and Nuriootpa along this 40-kilometre trail. Its sealed path is of a good quality and suitable for most fitness levels.
In Gawler, the trail runs from the Stuart O'Grady bike path on Sunnydale Avenue. This extension was only completed in 2022. Wine lovers might want to check out the section between Tanunda and Nuriootpa as there are quite a number of wineries to visit.
Although climbing gradually, the Nuriootpa-Angaston section would be the most scenic (in my opinion anyway). It follows the old rail alignment and has interpretive signage made of original railway sleepers. Sculptural artwork can also be found at both ends.
You can either travel the whole path or just do a section at a time. Feel free to choose which direction to go too. For those without a bike, you could perhaps consider walking the trail instead. More information is available on their website
