Visit one of South Australia’s iconic avenue
Seppeltsfield Road


Seppeltsfield Road located in the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's most spectacular driving avenues. On the western entrance to the road, one is greeted by an avenue of palm trees stretching as far as the eye can see. These beautiful Canary Island Date palms, over 2000 of them, were planted by the Seppeltsfield workers during the Great Depression. For those interested in photography, there is a small parking spot along the road for taking photographs.

Steep Road to the Mausoleum


Attractions along this iconic road include a mausoleum built in 1927 as a tribute to the Seppelts family who established one of Australia's oldest wine estates. The mausoleum stands atop a quartzite ridge and even though it is a steep walk to the top, you will be rewarded with a sweeping view of the Barossa Valley below.

The Seppeltsfield Estate

Picnic grounds


This 10-kilometre palm lined road leads to the iconic Seppeltsfield Estate with beautiful historic buildings and picturesque picnic area. The estate has gone through some transformation through the years and now includes a village for wine, food, art and craft, the latest addition being the Fino Restaurant and Bar.



On your next trip to the Barossa, do take a drive along Seppeltsfield Road and you will not be disappointed. More information on how to get there can be obtained on the Seppeltsfield Road website.

Nice article and photos Bev. It shows there is more to vineyards than just wine.
