Drovers Run



The iconic property featured as Drovers Run on the popular Australian outback drama series McLeod's Daughters has opened as premium accommodation after undergoing a dramatic redevelopment. Situated on the edge of the Barossa in South Australia, Kingsford homestead boasts six unique suites, each named after a previous owner of the historic property, as well as the private Stonemason's Cottage.
 
The 225-acre property is steeped fascinating history and provides stunning views across the valley, with a cobbled creek running through its centre and patches of scrubland sprinkled between grazing paddocks. Kingsford also offers two particularly unique luxuries - an underground cellar, perfect for private dinners and wine tastings, and an outdoor bush bath among the gum trees. All meals are prepared using seasonal Barossa produce by world renowned chef Stuart Oldfield, who has drawn inspiration from regional dishes served at the time the homestead was built in 1856.
 

Visitors are invited to take part in a range of tailored experiences on offer including walking trails, private wine tours, picnics, billy tea and damper, hot-air ballooning, gliding, sheep dog demonstrations and spa treatments. Further additions are planned for the near future including an all weather pool house, spa treatment room and a redevelopment of the property's shearing shed, transforming it into a function room perfect for private or corporate events. www.kingsfordhomestead.com.au
