Hotels in Gawler: At Kingsford Homestead rise to dawn light filtering through summer dusts and the smell of dew on the stubble. Hustle up your better half, grab an Akubra hat and take a walk into a warm, wide horizon. Sit under the veranda of your 1856 Kingsford Homestead to enjoy trophy food and wines handmade in the Barossa. Take a picnic on the river. Take a balloon flight over the vines. Take your time. Then gather beside a roaring fire and raise a ruby Shiraz to a diamond night sky. Kingsford Homestead is on a private 225-acre property and is an authentic sheep station, so chances are you'll get a little dirty as you unearth its histories and secrets. But relax, because this is country South Australia.
