Bowden's Cottage Open Days
As part of History Month visit the historic Bowden’s Cottage, a restored settler’s cottage in the heart of the Barossa Goldfields where gold was first discovered in 1868. Discover the Barossa’s gold mining history and explore gold mining displays.
After visiting Bowden’s Cottage, venture out on the Victoria Hill Circuit (1.5 km) or one of the other hikes in the park from the Barossa Goldfields trailhead.
Bookings: This event is FREE and for further information visit Barossa Goldfields Society.
