Angaston - Cities, Towns and Localities

Angaston from Menglers Lookout - Barossa Valley

Originally known as German Pass, then named Angas Town after George Fife Angas, the town was registered in August, 1857 by George Fife Angas as Angaston.

Heavily investing in what was then a young colony, George Angas sponsored British and German migrants to settle in the region, by leasing and selling land to them. Whilst many of the German migrants were Lutherans, when the first church was completed in 1844, with money donated by Angas, it was to be used by all different religions. Today the Union Chapel is one of the oldest churches in South Australia.

Today, this historic village is a perfect place to base yourself, being located in the Barossa Valley, home to some of the oldest wine producing grape vines in the world.

A region with a rich European heritage and Australian history, many small settlements, and vineyards producing some internationally celebrated and awarded wines.
