A small hamlet in the rolling hills east of the Barossa Range, Springton is renowned for two very different beverages - milk and wine. The high rainfall produces green pastures and dairy farming has been the backbone of the region's economy since the 1850s. Herds of Holstein-Fresian cows are still run on the land today.

Explore local wineries and the Friedenberg school and church, built in 1861 and now a school museum. Visit the Herbig Family Tree, a hollow gum tree that was the first home of the Herbig family in the 1850s. See the historic Friedensberg Church with its fascinating pioneer cemetery.
