Barossa wine train tour

by coloradopair

My wife and I will be in Adelaide Oct 12-14 and are thinking of taking the Barossa Wine Train trip (1/2 day or full.) Has anyone ever done this?
We know we could tour wine area via tour bus but we're kind of train buffs and enjoy train travel. Any advice would be most appreciated.

I don,t think that tour is in operation anymore, I live in the Barossa Valley and have not seen the train for a long time. If you decide to do the bus tour I can recommend doing the one that visits Chateau Yaldara, this was built by a German guy, Hermann Thumm, and houses antiques and the largest collection of Meissen porcelain in the world. The winery is still conducted in traditional ways.

Can't help on the Barossa, but as you're "train people" it may be worth a trip to the Pichi Richi Railway http://www.prr.org.au/cms/index.php

No, the wine train is not operating any more.

VT members in Adelaide have done a wine tour. Type an email to Adelaidean (VT member) and she will tell you which one they have done. I know they had a great time.

My husband and I took a Prime Mini Bus tour (http://www.primeminitours.com/tours.htm) which we only booked after arriving in Adelaide. For $70 you got a nice drive with some commentary, lunch, and stops at four wineries (Wolf Blass being the large one, but the three smaller ones were much nicer). I liked that there were only about 16 people on the tour and that you could sample as many wines as you would like and not worry about the driving!

Travel Tips for Adelaide

Glenelg

by AussieKitten

Visit Glenelg, a beachside suburb with a large beach, amusement park, and nice dining and shopping venues. Magic Mountain in Glenelg... I was 7 years old, and so the amusement park left a fond memory for me.

Tipping

by andrew_trav

Only a fool would tip in Australia. It is not required and not expected. Perhaps people in the tourist industry would act as though it is expected...but wages here are not calculated to take account of tipping as they would be in some countries.

Lovely cathedral: St.Francis Xavier Cathedral

by xuessium

St.Francis Xavier Cathedral:

Located at 39 Wakefield Street, Adelaide, this impressive building is the centre for Roman Catholic worship in Adelaide. It was built progressively between 1856 and 1926.

Really beautiful architecture, stately and inspire awe. Walked past the cathedral everyday as I made my way between City Centre and my apartment which was on the outskirts.

Mass times:
Saturday Vigil 1800
Sunday 0700, 0900, 1100 (Solemn Mass), 1800
Monday to Friday 0800, 1210, 1745
Confession times:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 1100 - 1145 and 1700 - 1730
Saturday 1200 - 1300 and 1630 - 1730

Brown Hill

by Diceman_

This hill was used as a "trig point" by Colonel William Light when surveying the original Adelaide plan. It is located in the suburb of Brown Hill Creek, and the hill can be ascended from Brownhill Creek Caravan park (not recommended) or from McElligotts Reserve on Carrick Hill Road. The start of the Carrick Hill Rd path looks like a private driveway as someone has built a house adjacent to it and has placed their letterbox (and bin) at the bottom.

I first walked up Brown hill at night and found it fairly mild, not too strenuous as far as hill climbs go. I walked the next day and found it a lot psychologically tougher because the path looked very steep and long in front of me, and there were scores of flies constantly buzzing around my face. Walking during the cooler months is recommended. Also due to its location it might be busier than elsewhere, there were about 30 people coming the other way when I descended on some sort of hiking group. They were dressed in identical garb to me (hat, backpack, stick) and some (who didn't see me descend from the top) were looking at me like I was part of their group but had packed it in halfway up.

Live Music: The Exeter

by Helium_Teapot about The Exeter (rundle st)

This is a lively and often crowded pub with bands playing in the rear beer garden.

Music styles vary but is generally beer fuelled rock'n'roll. It's often hard to get into the beer garden on a friday or saturday due to the crowds.

Sound is normally pretty average.

Free entry.
more pub than venue. casual
