Famous for its picturesque countryside, quaint villages and world-class vineyards, the Barossa Valley is not only one of South Australia's most popular tourist draw-cards but also a favourite with local people wanting to escape the city rat-race. With dozens of routes that day-trippers can potentially take, it can be a bit bewildering to know which one to choose if you're not familiar with the area.
In your opinion, what is the best one-day road trip in the Barossa Valley? Which roads do you take and what places are there to visit along the way? Is it good for international visitors, and are there places along the way to keep children occupied?
Whispering Wall for the kids, stop at the Barossa Farmers Markets & Anguston Cheese Shop (both Angaston) - Maybe lunch at Vinters Bar and Grill while there then organise a tour of Cirillo Estate - needs to be organised before hand though (http://www.weekendnotes.com/cirillo-estate-wines/)
A road trip this 600-plue kilometer at the top of the list would have to be Wilpena Pound.
On this route are the impressive Wadlata Outback Centre in Port Augusta, the view from the ridgetop at Arkaroola, and the Aboriginal rock art at places like Parachilna and Chambers Gorge.
