Known as the Garden of Gums and Grapes, Eden Valley is one of the Barossa’s most picturesque townships. Stands of magnificent red gums have contributed to its reputation, along with fine crisp Eden Valley Riesling, one of Australia’s most sought after regional wines. It also has a growing reputation for its Shiraz, Merlot and Viognier.
Popular stops in the town are the Eden Valley Hotel, which offers tastings of local wines in addition to is normal pub fare, and the beautiful stone St Petri Lutheran Church. On a curve of the road at the high end of town, the church and its spore are a well-known Barossa landmark. The historic institute building is the centre of this active community and holds two major annual events. The town’s market each June raises funds for local facilities and features market bargains and premium wines. And Eden Valley’s Australia Day Breakfast on 26 January is one of the most popular in the region.
