Barossa Idyll is ready and waiting when you are ready to travel!

With the Barossa region now no longer a COVID-19 high risk area and the positive announcements of the South Australian roadmap to recovery; restrictions are lifting as of May 11. Intrastate travel is now possible.

 With the advent of the new normal brought on by the COVID pandemic we would like to reassure you of our attention to your safety and comfort. Your health and your experience at Barossa Idyll are important to us. In the environment we now face with COVID-19; we would like to update you of our protocols for keeping Barossa Idyll a safe and welcoming environment for you. 


We have always valued and maintained high standards of cleanliness for our guests. With the advent of COVID-19 we have reviewed these and ensured our protocols are best practise recommendations for our cleaning team, in order to protect you and our staff. 

We have a rigid sanitation protocol for all cleaning procedures. After cleaning, all surfaces and floors are sanitised prior to each new stay. Our beds are triple- sheeted; which means that there are no quilt covers and all linen is therefore freshly laundered for each stay.  All linen and all towelling is laundered at 60 degrees C prior to use.

The home of Barossa Idyll is large and spacious with lots of living space and large bedrooms, allowing guests to spread out and have good social distance should they need. Barossa Idyll whilst in the township of Tanunda, is in a location surrounded by space. With vineyards to the back of the property, lots of fresh air and no immediate contact with neighbours allows a healthy environment for guests.

While the Barossa is a reasonably isolated community away from the city environs, there is certainly a great awareness of the COVID-19 situation and measures are being put in place in businesses to protect everyone.
