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 extend 40km from Angaston to Gawler via the three main townships of Nuriootpa, Tanunda and Lyndoch.
The Barossa Council officially opened the Angaston to Nuriootpa Bike Path in 2010; original railway sleepers were 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.
The Barossa region has a range of cycling options, this network extends to surrounding towns leading travellers on a journey of discovery. Rural landscapes, hidden attractions and expansive views.
The Barossa Trail (40km)
4 Hours – Cycling
Gawler to Tanunda (27km)
This fully sealed trail runs from the corner of Railway Tce and Ann Milroy Lane, just east of Gawler, through to the arch at the entrance to Tanunda. For the most part, it’s a dedicated shared-use trail (pedestrians and cyclists), with some short linking sections on minor roads (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.
