When & Where
Seppeltsfield Road Business Alliance
The Barossa Valley - there is nothing else like it in Australia. A rich European heritage lives on amidst patchwork vineyards, historic churches and picturesque villages with stone buildings and cottages.
Seppeltsfield Road leads from Barossa Valley Way to the iconic Seppeltsfield Winery, founded by the Seppelt family in the early 1850s. The 10 kilometres of Seppeltsfield Road now boasts not only some of the Barossa’s most famous wineries and vineyards, but also gourmet destinations such as Appellation restaurant and Maggie Beer’s Farmshop.
Often identified by its distinctive palm trees (and affectionately named Avenue of Hopes and Dreams), Seppeltsfield Road is located in the western Barossa, only 60 minutes from the Adelaide CBD via a two lane highway.
No trip to the Barossa Valley is complete without visiting, staying or dining in our historic and hospitable precinct. It’s not just about buildings and vineyards either. The warmth and welcoming smiles of the people who live and work in this region makes the visitor experience exceptional – there is a sense of being privileged and proud to be able to promote and share the food, wine, culture, heritage and hospitality of the Barossa Valley.
Whether coming for the day or staying, Seppeltsfield Road has something for everyone. The 15 cellar door experiences include activities ranging from feeding kangaroos and picnic spots for families, to tasting an iconic 100 year old Seppeltsfield Vintage Tawny and winery tours.
Accommodation ranges from a national award winning vineyard B&B for just two people to The Louise, a 15 suite boutique Luxury Lodges of Australia boutique hotel, with everything in between for families, couples and groups of friends.
Unique experiences include scenic sunrise Balloon Flights and the music of the Marananga Brass Band which has been entertaining Barossans for over 80 years and welcomes visitors to band practice at 8pm every Tuesday night - music is an integral part of the Barossa’s culture. The beautiful Gnadenfrei St Michael’s Lutheran Church which has been a part of the Seppeltsfield Road community for over 150 years dominates one of the most strikingly beautiful vistas in the Barossa.
Located on Seppeltsfield Road is a new state of the art Information Bay for our visitors which details all the destinations and experiences we offer with comprehensive maps and brochures to help you enjoy your journey of discovery.
The Seppeltsfield Road Business Alliance (SRBA) is an organisation made up of businesses and people who are passionate about and live and work along the road. We invite you to come and see for yourself what a world class destination this is.
