The Barossa is obviously renowned for its wine, but there are also plenty of other things to do within the region besides wandering into cellar doors and tasting some of the world's best drops.

The township of Lyndoch has beautiful streets lined with trees and dotted with heritage buildings. Simply download a guide for the town walk from here before you head out. As per the guide, I would recommend starting at the Village Green.

Just six minutes drive from the town centre, you'll find yourself in a lavender farm. The purple fields put on a stunning display when the lavender is flowering. Visitors are welcome to stroll through the farm (at no cost), browse through a range of lavender products and savour some lavender ice cream or lavender scones ($8.50 each). But, do be mindful of the flies during the warmer months!

With over 30,000 roses, Lyndoch Hill is one of South Australia's top rose gardens, in my book. I particularly love the gazebo area where multi-coloured roses cascade down the garden beds. The nearby Queens Garden, opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 2002, is worth visiting too.

On the same estate sits the impressive Barossa Chateau which offers cultural experiences as well as an arts & antiques gallery tour. A high tea consisting of savoury and sweet delights is also available for just $49 per person.

Last but not least, you can take to the skies with Barossa Helicopters. Scenic flights are private and cover iconic places such as Whispering Wall, Jacob's Creek and so on. You'll surely have an epic view to remember for some time.

Lyndoch is a lovely place. My Great Grandparents lived there & Great Grandfather built some of the original buildings including the primary school (mentioned in walking brochure) & his own house. There is also a street named after him - Kauffmann Street, near the bakery I think. Love your articles, always interesting.
