Welcome to The Paddocks

Luxury Self-Contained Barossa Valley Accommodation

Welcome to The Paddocks, formerly known as Whistler Farm Bed and Breakfast. Located in the heart of the world-renowned wine region of South Australia and set 42 acres, the 100-year-old homestead is equipped with guest lounge and two beautifully appointed, self-contained luxury suites.

To get the best out of your Barossa experience, we suggest you allow a minimum of 3-4 nights. There is just so much to enjoy, taste and experience in the Barossa.

At the end of a busy day exploring, why not relax with a cozy night in, or head out to any of the fantastic restaurants, just minutes away. Both suites have their own courtyards, outdoor settings, shade umbrellas and BBQ’s. Relax with a chilled Riesling or Rose and if it’s a little chilly outside, a big Barossa red and your complimentary cheese platter. Each Suite has a lovely vista over the gardens and beyond. The Vineyard Suite features a wood fired heater for those cold winter nights.

We look forward to hosting you soon at The Paddocks.
