Welcome to Willunga
A one-horse town with three pubs (a winning combo!), arty Willunga took off in 1840 when high-quality slate was discovered nearby and exported across Australia (used for everything from flagstones to billiard tables). Today, the town's early buildings along sloping High St are occupied by some excellent eateries, B&B accommodation and galleries. The Kidman Trail (www.kidmantrail.org.au) kicks off here, winding north to beyond the Barossa Valley. There's also a terrific farmers market here, plus a couple of craft-beer breweries doing good things.
