Tanunda is the chief centre of the Barossa - it is surrounded by vineyards and wineries. Located 70 km from Adelaide, Tanunda is the focal point of the Barossa Valley. It is a large rural settlement with leafy streets and is totally circumscribed by vineyards. No matter which way you look there is one at the end of the street. In the immediate area there are no fewer than eight wineries - Basedow Wines and Stanley Brothers Winery in Murray Street, Richmond Grove, Peter Lehmann Wines, Old Barn Wines and Langmeil Winery in Para Road, Chateau Dorrien on Seppeltsfield Road and Glaetz. Today the town continues to have a distinctly German feel with sausage shops, German bread shops, German-style restaurants and lots of wine.
Tanunda also has a variety of accommodation to suit all travellers to the region.
