Where the wind goes

Once you take off, you never know where you might land. Michael and Barbara Ludlow are glad their journey has carried them to the Barossa.

Building the canvas so people can create

As the sun sets on the driest part of the country, a new light emerges from the red sand.
Beams of every colour dance across the desert floor and into the night sky for Parrtjima Festival, an Indigenous celebration of light and culture in the heart of Australia.

Making a difference where it matters

For most Barossa families, a trip to the park is one of the easiest weekend outings to execute.
Whilst catching up at our picnic bench though, Seppeltsfield resident, Abbey Underwood, sees past the sunshine and scenery of the area and towards the difficulties of accessing the space for those with a disability.

Turning craft into conversation

You know morning cuppa’s over at the Tinkers Shed when Keith Pfeiffer goes back to work.
“You’ve got two minutes to go,” Keith calls over his shoulder as he returns to the shed floor, to a chorus of laughter.
Good natured banter flows easily between these Tinkers, who come from all walks of life.

Market value

Her heritage is as deeply rooted as the vines of Seppeltsfield, but it’s community that has helped re-affirm to Anna Hayes the true worth of being Barossan.

Family Bonds

For the footy-loving Schiller family, the adrenalin rush of finishing a hectic vintage isn’t too different from playing a Grand Final. Robert and his sons, Tom and Ben have each donned the boots for Tanunda over the years and whilst they are fiercely proud of their long association with the Magpies; off-field, it’s the land their ancestors developed through the generations that deeply connects this trio.

Each ‘sitter’ suggests the next person to be photographed in this series, and thus ensues
an interesting and unknown trail of Barossa
identities to come.

Veal Osso Bucco

A cold winters night screams comfort food to me and what better way to warm your insides than a delicious meal that’s slow cooked and full of flavour.

Smoke Taint

Combining the smoke from the chipotles with the herbaceous notes of the Savoury Allsorts gin and sage leaves from the garden, your palate is embraced in a rich warmth, with a spice that doesn’t leave you sweating in winter frost. Finished with lime to freshen and restore balance to your glass, this is one to revisit.

Local Beer

Craze for glaze!

There are few things better than the signs of spring and warm weather. After a long dreary winter, spring is time to bring the colour back into your home.

Gardening terminology explained…

For a novice gardener, horticultural terms, practices and scientific plant names can feel like another language (which it basically is! Generally Latin) and seem a little intimidating.

Your guide to winter fashion

The farewell to warmer days is tough, however a new wardrobe awaits! The switch of the season also signals a few months of cosiness and comfort ahead, and you can look forward to changing up your wardrobe for something a little more layered, textured and fun.

Sheep or goats are the new pets

Pet ownership in Australia is common, and while we generally think of a gorgeous tabby cat or a bouncing Labrador, here in the Barossa and Mid North we are seeing a new kind of pet.
