The Barossa features numerous playgrounds and parks for the family to stretch their legs, including a skate park at Coulthard Reserve, the Barossa Bushgardens and the Angaston Childrens Park in Murray Street.
A visit to the world-famous Whispering Wall in its natural bushland setting is also a must for the family. The massive curved retaining wall of the Barossa reservoir is a 140 metre long, acoustic marvel (you can speak in a normal voice and people on the other side can clearly hear you).
