Greenock, SA

The heart of western Barossa, Greenock is a peaceful village sometimes referred to as a “little Scotland in the Barossa”. The town’s oval, with its magnificent restored grandstand, hosts some of the region’s most competitive cricket and soccer matches and the shady recreation park is a popular spot for picnics and gatherings.


Its origins were in copper mining, however the fertile land surrounding it soon saw Greenock develop as a service centre for the grain trade and the local farming community. Most commerce was based around the Greenock Arms Hotel, a relay station for district mail coaches and teamsters hauling primary produce from the Barossa and copper from the Kapunda Mines.

The silo, mill and wheat store are still there, and Greenock still has a comfortable village feel. The local Tavern remains the hub of the town, a meeting place for locals and the new contemporary Murray Street Vineyards cellar door encourages visitors to linger longer.
