Kingsford Homestead Will Bring a Touch of Luxury to the Australian Bush



Kingsford Homestead will open in the Barossa Valley Wine Region in South Australia, on July 1, 2012. The luxury hotel was transformed from a working sheep station into a seven-suite, all inclusive property, with panoramic views of Barossa Valley and the North Para River.

The Stonemason’s Cottage, located at the rear of the property, has a fireplace, double shower and spa bath, and private garden. Each suite is French-inspired, with L’Occitane en Provence products in the bathrooms and complementary wireless internet.

Nearby attractions also include sunrise hot-air balloon rides, golf at Jacob’s Creek Estate, and historic sheep sheds for exploring. While touring the property you might even come across a parrot or kangaroo.
