Most of all, you’ll come to appreciate the rich history and heritage of Kingsford the Barossa. Built in the mid-1800s, the sandstone home was built in the Georgian style from stones that are rumoured to have travelled from Edinburgh as ship’s ballast. In fact, it was aboard a ship named Orleana that Stephen King from Lincolnshire first came to a land the natives called Mincalta. King ran 3,250 sheep on a section of land north of the Para river. After finding some success, King commissioned the two-storey house, but a drought in the 1860s forced King to sell the property to John Howard Angas. From there, the property changed hands a number of times, until it came into possession of Kerry Packer in 2000. The home was used to film 224 episodes of Drovers Run, and is now owned by the Ahrens family, who have opened the estate for all to enjoy.
