We have American friends who continually ask us why we visit the Barossa Valley so often. We even have Aussie friends who ask the same question.
The first photo below tells you most of what you need to know — the Barossa is a long way from anywhere. If that’s not enough, I think the following photos thoroughly explain why we keep coming back.
350 square miles checkerboarded with fields of wheat and sprawling vineyards. Only 20,000 people live here and half of them live in two neighboring villages. Angaston, the village we call home, has just 1900 people.
It’s not unusual to see a mob of kangaroos hopping down a country road or through a vineyard. We’ve even seen them hopping down the main street of Angaston on a quiet Sunday morning.
