Kooringal is an aboriginal word meaning “home near the water” which aptly describes this secluded retreat. This 4 star Australian style homestead features wide verandahs and is set on 13 acres of scenic bush gardens. There are magnificent views over the Barossa Ranges and the Barossa Reservoir, home of the famous ‘Whispering Wall’. At sunset guests may catch glimpses of the abundant birds and wildlife.
There are four guest suites in total, with a combination of self-contained suites, self-catering facilities such as guest kitchen and dining room and outdoor recreation cooking facilities. An informal lounge provides television and games. Evaporative air conditioning makes light of any warm weather.
Our dining room can be adapted to suit the needs of groups or couples. Breakfast is cooked in the guest kitchen adjacent to the dining room and is served at a time convenient to the guest.
Guests may choose from continental or full English breakfast.
