Welcome to the Barossa Bushgardens
The Barossa Bushgardens is a regional native flora centre, displaying, promoting and supplying the Barossa region’s local native plants. Idyllically situated on a seven hectare site in Nuriootpa on the floodplain of the North Para River, this community inspired initiative is open for anyone to learn more about the region’s local native plants, habitats, natural resource management and ecologically sustainable practices.
The Bushgardens is a recreational space utilised by children’s play groups, nature play festivals, school groups and TAFE students. On the northern edge of the site is the Barossa Labyrinth, a beautiful concrete artwork that takes about 20 minutes to walk, a mindfulness activity for health and well-being. The Dementia Friendly Community Garden is another quiet beautiful space with seating and shelter. Some of the other display gardens include the “CFS Fire-Wise Garden”, the “Sensory Garden”, the “Eremophila Garden”, the “Sanctuary Garden” and “The Old Gum Tree” tree restoration project.
Many of the paths are wheel-chair accessible and include interpretive signage making a leisurely outing to the gardens a relaxing enjoyable experience.
