Our Top 5 Summer activities on the Bethany to Angaston Trail

Are you looking for some inspiration to get you through the last week of summer holidays? Whether it's cooling down, burning off some energy, or treating the little ones with an ice cream sundae while the grown-ups enjoy a treat of their own ( you know we're talking about wine!) - the Bethany to Angaston Trail has something to keep everyone happy.


Bethany Reserve

The Bethany Reserve is a great spot to spend a few hours. Well equipped with a shelter, bbqs, toilets and picnic tables, you can enjoy a picnic lunch and let the kids burn off some energy. There’s a playground and plenty of room to kick a ball, or the more adventurous could explore the creek area (keep an eye out for wildlife).

Local’s Tip - Our picnic would include some local specialties from Steiny’s Traditional Mettwurst (F6) and the Barossa Cheese Company (F1), and perhaps a bottle of multi-award winning Grenache from nearby Bethany Wines (W3).
