The Barossa Airshow is Back!

The Barossa Airshow will take off again on 16th April 2023.

It will be a day packed with amazing aerial action, exciting entertainment and family fun, in South Australia’s beautiful Barossa Valley.

The Barossa Airshow first took to the skies in 1998.  It has been held every two years until 2017, and it has become a nationally recognised aeronautical and community event.  

The Rotary Club of Barossa Valley is hosting the 2021 event and is proud to continue the legacy of the original hosts, St Jakobi Lutheran School of Lyndoch.

Patrons bring along their deck chairs and blankets to laze on, while the day and activities unfold around them. The event has a well earned reputation as a relaxed family day out in a picnic style atmosphere, charged with adrenaline.

The Thrill of an Airshow

Aircraft, high above, in the hands of skilled pilots, pushing the limits of aerobatic display, provide a thrilling spectacle and magnificent display.

People love to watch the planes dipping and soaring, spinning, and rolling, and defying the laws of gravity. 

The Barossa Airshow is such an event, and its setting against the backdrop of the beautiful Barossa Ranges is only one of the elements that make it truly unique.

Pilots from all walks of life, flying a wide variety of aircraft, will make their way to the Rowland Flat Airfield for a day of non-stop action and entertainment

In the air, pilots will demonstrate their flying skills and craft by performing various flying manoeuvres.

On the ground, visitors will be able to view the aircraft and chat to the pilots.

However, there are even more attractions to be enjoyed.  Visitors will be able to browse market stalls laden with local produce and goods.  They will also be able to view special display exhibits, and information stands hosted by range of aviation and other community groups.

Throughout the day they will be able to enjoy a delicious lunch, drink or snack from one of the many catering outlets, and enjoy a range of fair ground amusements.
