Barossa Bushgardens

The Barossa Bushgardens is idyllically situated on a seven hectare site on Research Road Nuriootpa. It is a community project which provides a reference point for anyone wishing to learn more about and access regional local native plants, other natural resource management issues and sustainability. The Barossa Bushgardens were established in 2001 by dedicated volunteers wishing to preserve locally found native Barossa plants. The Barossa Bushgardens has grown to become a well-established community enterprise, environmental educational resource, tourist destination and recreation area. Showcased on site are 100 of the Barossa's 400 native plant species. Over the past 14 years, volunteers have tirelessly worked on developing display gardens, walking trails and interpretive signage, plant nursery and volunteer centre which increase the experience of the Gardens for the community. Garden displays: • Barossa Species Garden • Eremophila Display Garden • Country Fire Service Fire-wise Garden • Sensory Garden • The Old Gum Tree Our Natural Resource Centre is located inside the volunteer building. It provides a range of environmental information and services to the public. Local native plants are propagated onsite and can be purchased from the Bushgardens Nursery Tuesday’s and Thursday’s between 9am and 2pm.
