Barossa Valley Journey
Kingsford Homestead is located on the edge of the breathtaking Barossa, a region of history and renowned for their unmatched food and wines.
Follow in the footsteps of the pastoral pioneers on an early morning walk. Try a little vintage wine-tasting in the slate-floored cellar. Explore the Barossa, mingle or journey inwards for self reflection.
Take an outdoor bath in nature, inhaling deeply whilst listening to the birds and sipping on Champagne. Letting go.
With a customised itinerary for guests, your journey could include unforgettable culinary or wine experiences, hot air ballooning over the picturesque landscape, family fun activities, spa treatments, yoga onthe luscious lawns, cooking classes and much more!
Itineraries are customised based on your desires and requirements from involced corporate retreat itineraries to relaxed ones designed for family stays. Talk to our Property Hosts about putting together a proposed itinerary just for you.
About the Barossa
The Barossa is one of the world’s finest wine-growing regions, and is arguably home to the oldest vines in the world.
Now at the heart of the Australian wine industry, the rolling valleys and fertile plains of the Barossa were first noted in the 1830s for their extraordinary potential. In 1842 communities of Prussian émigrés were brought into the region to establish a little of the ‘old world’ in the new. As was their tradition, a few began to grow vines…
Today, their influence, their culture and indeed their extraordinary wine-making skills can still be seen in the historic settlements of this beautiful region – in towns like Bethany, Tanunda and Angaston. Not unrelated, the region supports an exquisite food culture and artisan production.
