There is no better way to explore the Barossa's premium food, wine and rich heritage than by bike.
Council's high-quality sealed cycling and walking network extends 40km from Angaston to Gawler through the three main townships of Nuriootpa, Tanunda and Lyndoch.
The Barossa region has a range of cycling options, with the Barossa network extending to surrounding towns leading travellers on a journey of discovery. Rural landscapes, hidden attractions and expansive views.
The Barossa Council officially opened the Angaston to Nuriootpa bike path in 2010 with original railway sleepers recycled and used in interpretive signage. The Tanunda to Gawler section opened in 2013, completing Council’s 40km continuous shared-use path across the Valley floor. 2022 has seen the completion of the extension of the 40km Barossa Trail connecting to the Town of Gawler's Stuart O'Grady bike path, making a significant and continuous cycling route for active communities and tourists.

The Barossa Trail (40km)
4 Hours – Cycling
Gawler to Tanunda (27km)
This fully sealed trail has recently been extended to run from the Stuart O'Grady bike path on Sunnydale Avenue, Gawler East connecting to to Anne Milroy Lane, Kalbeeba and through to the arch at the entrance to Tanunda.
For the most part, it’s a dedicated shared-use trail for pedestrians and cyclists with some short linking sections on minor roads including Cockatoo Lane, near Sandy Creek and a section of St Hallett Rd, south of Tanunda.
Tanunda to Angaston (13km)
Begins just north of Tanunda at the corner of Barossa Valley Way and Buring Road, where the main road crosses the railway line.
The trail follows the old rail alignment, climbing gradually from Nuriootpa all the way through to Angaston. This is a real deal rail trail with seats along the way, interpretive signs and a quality bitumen surface.
