Lyndoch Lavender Farm

I had intended to go to the Lavender Farm south of Brisbane earlier, but ran out of time, so when I heard there was a Lavendar Farm at Lyndoch, just north of Adelaide, I set out to see it.  It is much smaller than the one in Queensland, but interesting.






It is of course summer so everything is dry here in South Australia and you can see the dry golden grasses midst the gardens.  The lavender does have irrigation, but everywhere you look (other than the many vineyards and the lavender plants) it is dry and gold.

There is a small shop with a variety of products made with Lavender and other products (e.g. rose) - one pays $2 per person to wander through the Lavender fields and have a cup of coffee or cup of tea, and there is a cafe with a small range of items for lunch.

A number of bus companies take tourists to this place as well as other spots around the area.

Lyndoch is a small town, with lovely arts and crafts shops, and a huge bakery and cafe.  There are plenty of wineries around the area of course, and it is recommended to stay in one of the many hotels, B & B's, Caravan Parks etc.

Vineyards and golden hills.
