  • It's a dam curved and exhibits some amazing acoustics. It is also good for a walk around the entire stretch of the dam and back. A must see for those who are interested in it. 
  • My partner and I thought we would check this place out ... After all how could there possibly be a wall that you could hear one another from one end to a few hundred meters away whispering ? Well ... ...  read more »

  • Solemn place with an eerie atmosphere. Was fascinated with the actual fact that the so called "Whispering wall" has live up to your expectation and stands up to its name! FASCINATING!
  • One of the few places that i will always stop over when visiting barossa valley is the whispering wall. This is a dam for the barossa reservoir. Due to its shape, it's always fun to bring your guest around around to experience its parabola effect, where someone speaking from one end, you can hear clearly them from the other end. Standing atop of the wall. On one side, you feel as thou you are on a bridge and the reservoir water is just below you, turn yourself around, and you now find yourself looking over more than 9 storey high of heights. Interesting change of views. The only thing going against multiple visits is that, this is afterall, just a dam. A wall. If you have been there, done that, revisiting the place in a couple of years time won't alter your experience. But as I mentioned again, if you've never been there before, it's worth 15 to 30 mins of your time, and detour to the place to check it out.
  • Always a nice quiet and pretty place to stretch your legs and enjoy natures beauty.
  • Beautiful place with eucalypt scrub surrounding.
  • Lovely place with spooky acoustics. Well worth a visit.
