Kulpara 5555 - Chateau Tanunda - Falls Creek Snow Dump
A big surprise at Kulpara Where the heck is Kulpara I hear you say! I came across this tiny town with the magnificent postcode of 5555. From what I could see, there is only a handful of abodes that make up this village.. That, plus the location which is home to one of the best coffee shop on tap. Mark and Vicki Lomman are mine hosts. Their business also supports a corner store (without the corner), once a school (or was it originally a church). Check them out. Also they offer the passing traffic laser and Etching services. Should you be travelling that way sometime in the future, telephone (08) 8827 3228. I just had to stop en route to the Yorke Peninsula to check out this unique coffee 'stop'.
It's not only wine here On my recent tour of the Barossa, I was able to fill in some of my holiday time playing croquet on the green at Chateau Tanunda. To book your spot on the green, telephone (08) 8563 3888. Or go visit Gibson Wines and show your form on the petanque court. For that one, call (08) 8562 4224. After all this sport, go grab a Hutton Vale lamb or a beef pie. Almost as famous as the Charles Melton's fine Barossa red wine.
Augurs well for skiing season My good friend Ian Talbot reports that as from July 8 there may be some difficulty in targeting accommodation on the mountain. If you are quick, there is currently a window of opportunity prior to the busy busy season. Should you just be interested a wee bit, make the call and 'chuck a snowie'.
