Seppeltsfield Road Palm Avenue
How about a bit of exercise with plenty of wine and food stops along the way? With the start of the famous Seppeltsfield Road Palm Avenue only 1km from Stonewell Cottages and Vineyards, this 10 kilometre scenic tourist drive is the best place to start your Barossa discovery.
Currently under development is a 15 kilometre shared walking and cycling trail between the towns of Tanunda and Greenock. Completed so far is a two kilometre off-road stretch extending between Rolf Binder wines, and the Stonewell Road Visitor Information Bay. You can of course still ride along the rest of the road, which is undulating and scenic, while being mindful of road traffic.
Starting at Rolf Binder Wines Cellar Door, the path winds its way through natural scrub and alongside vineyard, leading its way to Whistler Wines cellar door. The path then continues on through Whistler’s Wines property, crossing over Seppeltsfield Road onto the northern side and runs alongside Turkey Flat vineyard down to the Stonewell Road/Seppeltsfield Road intersection and information bay. Here you can rest a while, take a look at the regional map and pick up a brochure to help you discover more along the road.
With 18 wine producers to stop in at along the way, you are sure to discover some outstanding western Barossa wines. All cellar doors deliver wine direct so you don’t have to worry about overloading your bike!. When you get hungry, or feel a bit wobbly on your bike after all that good wine tasting, there are plenty of good places to stop for a bite to eat; Fino, Hentley Farm, Appellation, The Eatery and Maggie Beer’s Farm shop, are all in close proximity along this scenic route.
