Things To Do

Breakfast with the Kangaroos: The Barossa is home to a large conservation park abundant with native Australian flora and fauna. The Louise has developed a unique experience that offers guests access to one of the simple pleasures of visiting regional Australia, seeing kangaroos up close in their natural habitat.

Your guide arrives at dawn in a 4-wheel drive vehicle for the 20-minute ride to the nearby conservation park.  An easy 15-minute bushwalk into the park leads to a clearing where families of kangaroos are enjoying their breakfast and your gourmet breakfast will be laid out on a picnic blanket in this truly natural setting.

This is not a petting tour and is not for children, but is a memorable way to engage with Australia’s most unique living icons.  Breakfast with the Kangaroos affords a great photo opportunity and operates daily October through May with prior booking.

Wine making: In concert with a premium winery nearby The Louise, guests are welcomed into the winemaker’s laboratory for a two-hour hands-on tutorial on the art and science of blending grape varietals. As part of this, you will experiment with several trial blends of barrel sample shiraz, grenache and mourvedre before choosing a final blend that is bottled with your name and date.

Appellation has developed a memorable way to complete this experience. Allow the chefs to develop a custom crafted dish paired specifically to your wine and will be served as an additional course exclusively to your table at dinner that evening.

Other Wine Activities: Whether it be a one-on-one masterclass, a private lunch and tasting with an artisan winemaker or a vineyard walk followed by a chat in front of a fire in a winemaker’s barn, The Louise can make these authentic wine experiences happen for you.

The Barossa is home to over 80 cellar doors and over 50 small producers who are not open to the public.  Allow them to introduce you to these hidden gems, up-and-comings and uber-small garagistes. Whatever your interest, they can tailor make a day of touring to suit your palate.

A typical itinerary includes pickup after breakfast by a trusted local guide in a private car, stopping in the morning at two or three boutique winemakers. Lunch may be in the private home of an artisan winemaker, paired with multiple vintages of the producer’s pride-of-house wines.  The afternoon concludes with a visit to one or two additional specialist producers, whose properties are usually never open to the public, but who genuinely, welcome a guest couple or small group from The Louise into their passion-filled winery.  This special tour shares the essence of what is magic and special about the Barossa and is highly recommended.
