Some may call them weird and wacky, while others call them works of art!

Either way come March, scarecrows begin appearing like magic across the region, captivating the community and visitors.
Over time, scarecrows have become an integral part of the Barossa Vintage Festival celebration. Now synonymous with the Festival, the initiative is an opportunity for the community to showcase their creative flair and create inspiring and captivating works of art to adorn their vineyard, school, business, cellar door and garden.

They’re the imagination of the community and carefully created with love, care and thought … each scarecrow, unique with its own identity, story and connection to the region.

From March, the Barossa Scarecrow trail will come to life, with scarecrows appearing like magic. Jump in the car with the family, hop on a bike, follow the trail and witness the creative invasion for yourself.
