Bethany is a tiny town within the Barossa wine region, home to the Schrapel Family Vineyards, with cellar door sales tucked away in an old bluestone quarry at the corner of Bethany and Light Pass Roads.

Steep yourself in the region’s history, beginning with the Bethany Pioneer Cemetery. Its significant features include a cast iron memorial to missionary Heinrich Meyer. There’s also the Herberge Christi Lutheran Church with schoolhouse and teacher’s residence. The rear of the church features a charming thatched roof and children’s playground.

Bethany is the site of the first German settlement in the Barossa. It is one of the few surviving examples of a ‘hufendorf’, a democratic form of Silesian village layout, where each family had its own long strip of land stretching from the main street in front of the cottage to a common pasture bordered by a creek. The street is still lined with many early cottages.

Towards the hills is Bethany Reserve. It provides a replica stock pavilion for picnic parties.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
