PUBLIC TRANSPORT TO THE BAROSSA VALLEY
If you don't wish to do tours to the Barossa Valley, then you can come by Bus and stay a few nights in the area. There is lots to see and do, so it is a good idea.
You have to catch Barossa Valley Coaches from Gawler, as they have suspended the run to Adelaide.
This is ok, as reaching Gawler by bus or train is very easy.
Buses do connect with the train. You can view the time-table on the website listed below.

Adelaide International Airport (ADL)
Barossa is located just to the Northeast of Adelaide, so your best bet when coming here is to fly into Adelaide, and then drive up. It is always recommended that if you are going to partake of the wine tastings to consider an organized car hire from the airport.
South Australia's Capital City, Adelaide is serviced by one of the premier airports in Australia. Named as the Australian Capital City's Airport of the Year, ADL is no slouch on the airport circuit. Great facilities, plenty of direct and indirect connections, and a larger number of international carriers bless this tiny regional outpost's main air center. It is a shock to me that small Adelaide (in comparison to Sydney/Melbourne) could have similar or better flight schedules than their bigger brothers. Way to go politicians fighting for SA!
Domestically, ADL services Qantas, Virgin Blue, and Jetstar (the big three). Rurally, it has REX, National Jet, and O'connor for small hops. Internationally, Qantas, Cathay to HKG, Singapore, Malaysia to KL, and Air New Zealand if you are going to the "eastern states" of Australia, New Zealand.
