The Barossa Bushgardens is a community initiative on 7.5ha that showcases and supplies regional native flora and promotes sustainable Natural Resource use.
The Barossa Bushgardens were established in 2001 by dedicated volunteers wishing to preserve native plants from the Barossa region. The Barossa Bushgardens has grown to become an established community enterprise, education resource, venue, tourist destination and recreation area.
The Barossa Bushgardens is a Natural Resource Centre situated adjacent to the North Para River on 7 hectares next to Nuriootpa. The site includes a Botanic Garden, Seed Orchard, Native Plant Nursery, and Community Centre. Showcased are 100 of the Barossa’s 400 native plant species. Volunteers have tirelessly worked on developing display gardens, pathways and signage. Largely cared for by volunteers, the Bushgardens are funded by the Barossa Council and the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Natural Resource Management Board with the generous support of local sponsors. We are a reference point for anyone wishing to learn more about regional native plants, natural resource management issues and sustainability. Plants can be ordered or purchased direct from the Nursery.
