Late Winter in the Barossa Valley, South Australia

Seppeltsfield and Marananga are home to one of the regionís most scenic drives. The huge date palms lining the road were planted to provide work for local families during the depression and now provide a stunning landscape popular with photographers. The Seppelt Family Mausoleum, built on the highest hill overlooking the Seppeltsfi eld Valley, was completed in 1927 by the employees of B Seppelt & Sons. It is now the repository for a majority of the Seppelt Family descendants. You can learn the fascinating story of the family by taking one of the tours at nearby Seppelt Winery. Another landmark, Gnadenfrei Lutheran Church has been servicing the community of Marananga for 130 years and visitors are welcome to Sunday morning services and community events. This part of the Barossa is home to Maggie Beerís Farm Shop where you can sample and buy the locally made produce and books of this well-known Australian food identity. If you get there in the afternoon, donít miss the cooking demonstration at 2pm Ė thereís one on everyday. For lovers of events, Shakespeare in the Vines has become an annual midsummer performing arts treat on the Barossa calendar each January at the Seppelt Winery. And equally as popular are the Australia Day (January 26) celebrations at multi-award winning Whistler Wines. An earlier gallery (featuring the Herbig Tree) of mine can be found here
