The main cities of the valley: Tanunda, Angaston and Naroutpa, and the culture of each varies quite significantly due to different ethnic composition. The town of Tanunda, for example, was built by German immigrants in the 1840s. German life and traditions have been preserved in the city today, and since the Germans came mainly from the province of Silesia in Prussia, then they sometimes call the valley "New Silesia". Naroutpa was built by English and German immigrants and is the economic center of the region. The impetus for the development of Angaston was given by English miners from Cornwall, as well as other British, so it is considered the city of the British.

Almost the entire population of the Barossa Valley is engaged in winemaking. Vineyards here stretch for many kilometers. The best view of the valley opens from Mount Mengler Hill, with which you can see all the vineyards. Every year there are wine festivals that attract tourists from all over the world. During the holiday, you can try wines from manufacturers such as Grant Burge, Peter Lehmann, Torbreck, Orlando Wines, Yalumba, Kaesler, Saltram, Penfolds, Rockford, Wolf Blass, Elderton, Glaetzer and Seppelts. In February, Adelaide hosts the Wine Cellar festival, and in April, the Wine Month takes place". In August, local residents and guests of the region walk on the "Gastronomic Weekend in Barosse".
