Tanunda ©
One of the cities of the Barossa Valley wine-producing region, Tanunda has an easygoing atmosphere stemming from its close connection with agriculture and viniculture.
Let the collections at Greenock Aviation Museum and Jam Factory, Seppeltsfield, Barossa Valley Australia capture your imagination. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Rockford Winery and Murray Street Vineyards. And it doesn't end there: learn about winemaking at Chateau Tanunda, get to know the fascinating history of Town Walk of Tanunda, and look for all kinds of wild species at Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park.

Plan my trip to Tanunda with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Vancouver, Canada to Tanunda is an approximately 23-hour flight. You'll lose 17 hours traveling from Vancouver to Tanunda due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Vancouver in March, you will find days in Tanunda are much warmer (32°C), and nights are a bit warmer (17°C). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) early enough to travel to Broome.
