Barossa Bushgardens is situated on a 7-hectare site showcasing about 130 out of 400 local Barossa plant species.
The Bushgardens contain multiple display gardens, a children's nature play area, and a 13-metre labyrinth supporting mental health and wellbeing. It also houses a Natural Resource Centre helping to educate local community about sustainability and natural resource management (NRM).
The gardens, including the Dementia Friendly Garden, Fire-Wise Garden, and Eremophila Garden, offer several spaces to enjoy a relaxing day out. Come alone or with family and friends to stroll nature walks, sight beautiful flowers, watch out for native animals, feel and smell plants in the Sensory Garden, or just relax with a picnic.
Paths are wheelchair accessible and bike-friendly, and furry dog-friends on leads are more than welcome. A water fountain is located next to the Old Gum Tree for your thirsty pooch, and a toilet block and change table for babies are next to the Volunteer Centre.
Bushgardens site management
The site is managed by the Barossa Bushgardens Committee with the support of volunteers and staff members. The committee maintains a Strategic Plan and Urban Design Framework (Master Plan) ensuring a coordinated and planned approach for future works and development. We're always looking for enthusiastic people to join our team. Find out more about volunteering at Barossa Bushgardens.
