Cape Jervis – Explore the Barossa Valley

This morning cruise back to Cape Jervis and enjoy a drive to the famous Barossa Valley. En-route, you can stop at the Lutheran settlement of Hahndorf, the oldest surviving German village in Australia.

Continue to the Barossa Valley where you will spend the day visiting some of the best cellar doors in Australia or alternatively visit Maggie Beer’s Farm shop, the Whispering Wall or even take a hot air balloon over the verdant and pristine rolling landscape of the region.

The Barossa Valley is one of Australia’s best and most famous wine-producing regions, now regarded as one of finest in the world, and is home to Australia’s most expensive wine, Penfolds Grange. Direct driving 172km (2.5 hours).

The Whispering Wall in Williamstown in the Barossa Valley is a unique phenomenon allowing you to “throw” your voice over 100 metres. The unintentional phenomena are created due to the wall’s curved shape which leads to voices being carried from one side of its arch to the other, even when whispered, hence its name.

For visitors looking to take in the gourmet side of South Australia, a visit to Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop is a must. Maggie Beer is a renowned figure on the Australian food scene and the Farm Shop has been enthralling visitors since the 1970’s. The shop is a celebration of the diversity of produce of the region and visitors can try an array of jams, oils, pates and ice creams or even enjoy a meal at the restaurant on the lovely lakeside property. Guests can even enjoy cooking demonstrations or a walk around the farm itself and take in the birdlife of the area such as peacocks, quails and pheasants.

There is truly something for everyone in the Barossa Valley!
