Barossa Valley Lions Club
LOCATION - BAROSSA VALLEY
The Barossa Valley begins some 50 kilometres east of Adelaide at Gawler and stretches for 40 kilometres towards Stockwell and Truro, further east. It encompasses the Towns of Nurioopta, Tanunda, Angaston, Lyndoch and Gawler, and a few smaller towns set in the rolling valleys of the northern reaches of the Adelaide Hills.
The Barossa, which encompasses Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, has a thousand faces, each of them charming. Lutheran churches in landscapes of natural beauty lovingly reshaped by six generations of the descendants of the English and German settlers who came here in 1839.
It was the foresight of these early German settlers who recognized the suitability of the climate and soil to the production of wine grapes. Today the Barossa Valley is one of the world's major producers of fine table wines and there are dozens of wineries creating varied products for you to sample. The Barossa, is a marvellous place to visit, an intimate place of charming old towns, with the vineyards spreading across undulating hills in well tended, precise rows.
The Barossa climate is broadly Mediterranean with cool to mild winters and warm to hot summers. Spring and autumn are delightfully mild and some winter days can be quite crisp.

As an extension to the Turkish Lions' contribution, the Brisbane Ekibin Lions Club of MD 201 Q1 (Australia) offer assistance to Lions Clubs who want to take advantage of the Turkish Lions offer, but are not familiar with web publishing. They've already set up many sites for Lions Clubs world-wide, using Lionwap.
If your club wants to be on the internet, and would like some help, leave a message in the Ekibin Guest Map/Book by clicking on the image above. This is a FREE SERVICE, so you don't spend a cent for their work. As Lionwap is also FREE, this means you get a web site that you NEVER have to pay for. - Is that a deal or what?
All your Club has to do it have some-one update and maintain your page, which needs not take more than a few minutes each month. The Ekibin Lions will even give you some tips on that!
