Location - Where Is It?
The Barossa Valley is a major wine-producing region and tourist destination of South Australia, located 60 km north-east of Adelaide in the valley formed by the North Para River. The area is approximately 13 km long by 14 km wide. The Barossa Valley Way is the main road through the valley, connecting the three main tourist towns of Nuriootpa, Tanunda and Angaston, with Nuriootpa being the largest and the centre for commerce in the region. Smaller towns surround them, and ones with attractions to visitors are Rowland Flat and Lyndoch. Incorporated into the Barossa is the Eden Valley, famous for its white wines and located in the south-west of this conglomerated region.
