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.
