Experience Bethany

Visiting Bethany

Visit Bethany, the Barossa's oldest village and explore the history of our amazing wine region.

28 families from from Silesia (now Poland) settled in Bethany in 1842.

It's still a close-knit community centerd around the church, which was built in 1883 with bluestone from the quarry.

Many of the locals grow grapes and make wine, and trace their family history back to the first settlers. There are 22 locations of interest along a 5km return walk. 

Bethany is on the Barossa Heritage Trail, a great way to learn more about the region's history and traditions.

Barossa Cheese and Wine Trail

This trail begins with the collection of a cheese hamper from the Barossa Valley Cheese Company in Angaston. You can then roam the beautiful Barossa, discovering a new taste experience at each winery.

Follow a trail... or go your own way!

Bethany to Angaston Trail

The Bethany to Angaston trail takes you from our little community in Bethany to the hills of Angaston.

Discover where the locals go for amazing Shiraz, a cheeky little Riesling, or fabulous produce straight from the farm.

It's where we take our own visitors when they come to town.
