Built in 1856, Kingsford The Barossa is picturesque venue that has been lovingly restored to become one of Australia’s finest luxury retreats – a gem nestled amongst riverbanks and rolling hills, surrounded by beautiful gum trees and the native Australian landscape.
Tucked away and only 45 minutes from the bustling city centre, the iconic 225-acre property is set on the edge of the breathtaking wine country of South Australia. Once home to a wealthy nineteenth-century pastoralist, nothing rivals exclusive access to the 16-suite retreat which can host up to 32 people.
The property has recently re-opened after a two year, multi-million-dollar redevelopment by owners Leanne and Stefan Ahrens.
The homestead is now complemented by an impressive new lodge, designed to give guests a taste of the best the Barossa can offer, such as fine wine, artisan-grown produce and good times shared.
Modern, luxurious and overflowing with timeless character, the new expansion includes four new east-facing View Suites that ensure guests can enjoy uninterrupted views of rolling hills through floor-to-ceiling glass, with access to private courtyards. Another addition is the new expansive Conservatory, which is the perfect location for hosting special events at any time of day with the backdrop of idyllic pastoral views.
While our helpful host is always on site, Stefan and Leanne encourage all guests to treat the estate as their private home.
A menu of Kingsford experiences – including our famous bush bath – and Barossa touring options are provided upon request.
The Barossa is our next-door neighbour
Kingsford is set on the southern edge of South Australia's famous Barossa Valley wine region. It sits on the North Para River, surrounded by prime agricultural country and pockets of native Australian bush. It is a fifteen-minute drive to the Barossa and surrounding iconic wineries including Seppeltsfield, Yalumba, Henschke and Langmeil - home to what is considered the world's oldest surviving Shiraz vineyard.
Easy to Find
Adelaide International Airport is served by overseas and domestic carriers. Kingsford is an easy 50-minute drive from the airport via the Northern Expressway. The property has a helipad and is close to a number of small airfields (including Gawler).
