At 361 metres above sea level, the picturesque town of Angaston is set on the highest point of the Barossa Valley
The town shares an English and German heritage and takes its name from George Fife Angas, who settled in the area in the 1830s. Collingrove Homestead, the Angas family home on the outskirts of town is protected by the National Trust and is open for public viewing. It combines distinctively Australian function with a unique Englishness.
The Dandy and The Quiet Stockman of We of the Never Never immortality, lie at rest in the Angaston cemetery. You can absorb some of the history of Angaston and the development of the Barossa Valley vineyards by taking the Heritage Walk.
Ten minutes out of town, a bush trail leads you through the Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park which includes part of the state-wide Heysen Trail.
Several of the Barossa Valley's wineries are within easy reach from Angaston. The Angas Park Fruit Co. is worth a visit for local produce, especially dried fruit.
