Sightseeing in the Barossa Valley!
A beautiful drive through the small town of Seppeltsfield is something I do regularly. It is well known for its photos of looking up the hill at the mausoleum and the straight stretch of road with palm trees. Get a good stretch of your legs and climb up the hill to the Seppelt family mausoleum with a magnificent view over the valleys and vineyards of Seppeltsfield. Definitely a must see on your to see list in the Barossa.
Menglers Hill Lookout
Located near Bethany and east of Tanunda is the popular Menglers Hill Lookout and Barossa Sculpture Park. See some amazing views over the Barossa and vineyards as far as you can see! The lookout is very popular for sunsets and sunrises, be sure to catch one of those. You can also go for a stroll around the hill and find some odd but funky sculptures !
A peaceful spot to enjoy some walking trails and Australian wildlife located in Nuriootpa. The trails lead you around the North Para River and Barossa Bush Gardens. Along the way you will also come across a cute little bush chapel, a popular place for small outdoor weddings. There are picnic areas to have a quiet lunch and spaces for the kids to play, dogs are welcomed as well. I enjoy walks and bike riding through this park all the time when I am home!
The Whispering Wall
This is a cool place to explore for everyone! This massive 94 ft high concrete wall is located near Williamstown. It holds the large dam of the Barossa Reservoir. It's a very popular tourist attraction due to the fact that sounds and voices can travel along its curved edge and be heard on the other end, hence the name 'Whispering Wall'.
