Spring has sprung at Bellwether – the garden is amazing, full of familiar aromas that remind me of past Springs and tell me that the world is still turning, the trees and plants and insects don’t see our anxiety of a global pandemic – they just get on with their job, and it brings such joy and comfort to see that. With Spring comes more visitors and glamping bookings – so if you are planning a visit – BOOK AHEAD!
Great news to see most of the states can now visit Coonawarra (don’t all come at once!). We are hoping, with all our fingers and toes crossed, for the borders to be open again soon for our Victorian friends and family, and look forward to spending meaningful times together again...and not on a screen! Being halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide we are excited to again host the wonderful reunions here under the gum trees. I feel like we might need to have a big party….. but maybe smaller catch ups in a thoughtfully spaced campground is more kosher. We are well positioned for those gettogether's and have already seen our SA friends come and stay, booking personal dinners to take the time to reconnect. You can book the whole campground for $1200/night. Please call or email us to check availability.

We have Glamping Bell tents or powered and unpowered sites if you have your own camp gear with wonderful campground facilities (See above - Top: Camp Kitchen, Middle: Camp Bathrooms & Bell Tent, Bottom: Camp Grounds & Produce Garden). If your situation changes we are happy to reschedule or refund any bookings as required.
Our campground is really well spaced with campsites at least 100m apart (over 2,000m2 per camper). We have six beautiful Bell tents to sleep up to 12 people (2 in each tent) and 6 camp sites with your own gear. Our bathrooms and camp kitchen are clean with hand sanitiser and washing stations.
Surrounded by 500+ year old red gums and central communal campfires to keep you warm with a glass of red in the cooler months.
While staying at our winery, see the wine being made during vintage, even join in if you want to do the vintage experience. Cook using fresh herbs and produce from the garden including fresh eggs. We have an exclusive hour of wine tasting from 4-5pm....just for our guests. Book online HERE
The World heritage listed Naracoorte Caves are 20 mins up the road or take a drive over ancient coastlines to the seaside fishing towns of Robe and Beachport.
Glamp in a luxurious Bell Tent. Wake to a symphony of birds, sleep in a bed with fresh linen and creature comforts, a short walk from our unique cellar door. Pure Coonawarra heaven!
Did we mention our posh loos? We have a beautiful amenities building with 7 showers, 6 toilets and a claw foot bath. This includes a disabled shower and toilet.
