B is for Barossa

In nearly seven weeks, we’re going on a girly family holiday (kids included, of course) to South Australia. It’s the first time that Mum, Kim and I will have taken a holiday together, the first time the kids will brave a plane flight, and the first time visiting our beautiful southern cousins for a wedding in the iconic Barossa Valley.

We’ve been talking about what we can do when we’re there – and first on the list (aside from spending lots of time with our family), is a visit to Maggie Beer’s Farm shop in the Barossa Valley. I’m already mentally writing a long list of purchases, including fig and spiced pear paste, some amazing ice cream (burnt fig, caramel and honeycomb!), and some delish pheasant pate. I can’t wait to bring them home to share!

But we’re looking for suggestions – what else should we check out while we’re there? Is there anything, aside from all the lovely wineries, that is too deliciously good to pass up?

Are you spending any time in Adelaide too? We've just come back from a 3 week road trip (ex locals) and I highly recommend a visit to the Adelaide Central Markets (nothing I have found in Queensland compares. Also Coles are now stocking a large range of Maggie's stuff to save you lugging it all home (I even noticed some of her Fig ice cream while there yesterday. Have fun and can't wait to read all about it xx
