The Barossa Valley SA

After getting my awning replaced in Port Wakefield we headed up to the Barossa Valley for a couple of days. Drove up through Gawler and past Cockatoo Valley to Jacobs Creek Winery. This was the only winery we did a wine tasting at. I’m not a wine drinker but had a taste. A couple of wines were palatable and we brought one bottle that is only available through their cellar door. We then headed into Tanunda for lunch and a look around and to get some supplies. Enroute to our overnight stop at Greenock we drove past the vast fields of grapevines that make up the Seppeltsfield holdings. On part of their property is a family Mausoleum high on a hill. It was sort of an eerie place, even in the daylight.

Greenock was a lovely little town and had RV Camping at the sports ground . Great facility for $5 per night. The town was Quaint with a couple of wineries and a brewery as well as a couple of cafes.

Next day we drove through Nuriootpa to Angaston where we spent the morning looking around this beautiful town. A bustling business area full of eateries and art and craft type shops. We did a shop here for fruit and vegetables only to have to surrender them at the Quarantine Station west of Blanchtown.

We could have spent longer in this area but with a hot weekend, in fact the first taste of summer this year forecast, we headed up through Truro and Blanchtown before following the Murray River down to Walker Flat.
