Would you like to immerse yourself in the heart of German Lutheran country - and help others at the same time?

Then Walk My Way Barossa is for you!


What makes Walk My Way Barossa special?

  1. Start your day with a Big Barossa Brekkie at Redeemer Lutheran School.
  2. Walk through rolling landscapes, rows of vineyards, and stunning autumn colours.
  3. Enjoy a barbie at beautiful St Hallett winery - PLUS wine and cheese if you choose!
  4. Reflect on the lives of early German settlers as you pass old cemeteries. Will you see any names you recognise?
  5. Help refugee children in East Africa to go to school!

What does the day look like?

We’ve planned a 26km walking challenge from Redeemer Lutheran School in Nuriootpa to St Jakobi Lutheran Campus in Lyndoch.

After your Big Barossa Brekkie, and an opening ceremony, it's time to get walking!

You'll walk through beautiful countryside, townships, and past wineries. There'll be drink and toilet stops along the way.

After lunch at St Hallett winery, you'll continue on to St Jakobi for a finish line celebration!

There’ll be buses to take you to and from the start and finish, so you can leave your car at either end.

You can even bring a team of students and teachers from your school. What a great way to bring your school community together to help others! 

Lunch at a winery?! Can I enjoy a glass of red??

You sure can!

We'll provide a simple sausage sizzle for all Walkers. If you'd like something more, you can purchase a St Hallett platter or glass of wine. Simply call the cellar door on 08 8563 7070 to order, or buy on the day (NB: the vegetarian platter must be ordered in advance).

Platters on offer:

  • Cheese Platter, $35.00 - includes a selection of cheese, fruits and crackers
  • Vegetarian Platter, $35.00 - includes a selection of vegetarian dips, cheese, fruits and crackers (these must be ordered before the Walk day)
  • Barossa Platter, $50.00 - includes a selection of cheese, fruits, crackers, local produce/small goods
  • Chocolate and wine flight, $15.00 - includes 3 wines paired with 3 handmade artisan chocolates.

How much does it cost?

It's $50 for an Adult and $20 for a Child, which includes a Walk T-shirt, bag sewn by former refugees, breakfast, and sausage sizzle lunch.

PLUS, thanks to the generosity of the Lutheran Laypeople's League who are covering the registration costs, your fee is a donation that goes straight to those who need it most. Thank you, LLL!

What if I can't get to the Barossa?

There are also Walks in Melbourne, on the Gold Coast and in Albury (coming soon!)...

...or you can hold your own Walk!

If you want to do a Walk by yourself, click here to find out how.

Can I run instead of walk?

Yes, runners are very welcome; however, be aware that there will not be a truck to carry packs from your start location to the finish.

Run?? I can hardly walk!

If you can't walk 26km, you can walk 13kms from Redeemer to St Hallett Winery. Simply choose this when you register online.

Or, if you're a wheelchair or pram user, watch this space to find out how you can Wheel My Way from Redeemer to Linear Park or Chateau Dorien! (Details coming soon).

If you're not up to walking or wheeling at all, there are so many other ways to participate. Sponsor a walker, sponsor a team or simply donate.

We also need lots of volunteers. Please drop us a line to find out how you can help!

I'd like to know more about the timing on the day and what I should bring.

Sure! The Walkers' Information will be available at the bottom of this page by January 2020.

What time are the buses?

We will be offering a bus shuttle service between Redeemer Lutheran School, St Hallett Winery, and St Jakobi Lutheran Campus.

The bus schedule will be available in January 2020.

Is there a bus to take me home from St Jakobi at the end of the walk?

Sorry, no. If you have no one to collect you from St Jakobi, then you can leave your car there in the morning and take the bus to the start location.

What happens if the weather is bad?

If high temperature is forecast (35 Celsius or above) or if other extreme weather conditions are forecast (lightning, gale force winds), the Walk will be cancelled. You'll be informed at the start locations, via email, SMS and Facebook.

What happens if I or a person in my group injures themselves?

There will be a First Aid officer on duty at different points along the trail and at the end. There is an emergency contact number provided. Please refer to the Walkers' Information below (available January 2020) for what to do in an emergency.

I've got more questions...

Not a problem. Please have a look at:
