Did the Victoria loop. Very interesting and we were stopping every 10 metres to read the historical signs. The bushland was a pleasure to meet kangaroos and to see the old miners hut. And discover the ruins of a small community all with informative signage....More

Gold mining history of the Barossa area on a dusty track. We got part way through the shortest trail (1.4km Victoria Hill Circuit). Worth a visit if you're looking for a hike in the Aussie bush

Hi Sorry for delay. Didn't see alert. Yes dogs can be walked on leash. You can do circuits or walk a long circuit into Parra Wirra -?the Neck. Valley walk takes you past interesting historical sites.
