Barossa Bushgardens is situated on a seven hectare site in Nuriootpa. Established in 2001, this regional native flora centre is a community project and the result of the work of passionate locals who work to conserve, promote and supply the Barossa region’s unique indigenous native plants. A visit to the Barossa Bushgardens is informative and educational, as well as a beautiful place for an afternoon stroll.
You can see a large range of these Barossa indigenous plants growing in our native planting areas around our property. Evan has a passion for native re-vegetation and native Barossa plants. We have planted more than 3000 plants since 2014 and they are thriving along the lake banks at Stonewell Cottages, with more future plantings planned.
Barossa Bushgardens has seven display gardens, including the CFS Fire-wise Garden, the Truly Australian Front Garden, the Sensory Garden, the Sanctuary Garden and The Old Gum Tree restoration project. Walking trails wind their way through the different sections of the gardens and plants are labelled for easy identification, with self-guided tour flyers are available at the entrance. Over 100 native plants are propagated onsite and can be purchased from the Bushgardens Nursery.
