Silver Raven Festival

collage 500x200 header

Turkey Flat & Golden Arrow are thrilled to bring you Silver Raven Festival this April! An Americana tinged rock n roll extravaganza featuring some of the best names in the biz. Surrounded by the idyllic gardens and vines of our good friends, Turkey Flat Vineyards, this will be an epic day of world-class music, food and booze.

Bringing the good eats will be a tasty collaboration between The Happy Motel and The Vendor – with rumours of an infinity charcoal swirling, we know we’re in for some treats!

Headlined by none other than the Billboard Chart’s #1 Country/Folk/Rock artist of 2015, Jason Isbell, the line-up is jammed with amazing talent:

Jason Isbell
“Jason Isbell is arguably the most revered roots-rock singer-songwriter of his generation” – The Music
Jason Isbell, along with his stellar band The 400 Unit, will return to Australia to play Silver Raven Festival. Released in July, his incredible new album Something More Than Free, has simply reinforced what a formidable and respected songwriter Isbell is. It debuted at #1 on three Billboard charts – Top Rock Album, Country Album & Folk Albums – it has set airplay records around the globe and has critics raving. Rolling Stone Magazine being one: another: DzAlt-country? Americana? Whatever, he’s made another utterly towering record.”

Eilen Jewell
Honesty, confidence, and respect permeate Eilen Jewellǯs music, dating back to her self-released Boundary County album in 2006. Since then, the Boise native has recorded five studio albums for Signature Sounds with her road-tested touring band, and two more as a member of the Boston-based

The local garage rock n roll masters. A sound, which draws from the Australian underground of the late 70s and 80s, while also taking cues from US indie outsiders like The Replacements and Wipers. Mundane meets morbid; the humdrum meets the horror; nostalgia meets nightmare. Big dreams meet bad dreams.

Endless Boogie
The best-kept secret in New York’s rock scene. In a sea of derivative and freshly outfitted young bands, Endless Boogie — with a combined age of 169 and members who count Canned Heat as one of their influences — doesn’t have a big agenda. They just want to rock with you, preferably all night long. We try boogie sometimes, but boogie’s hard, says guitarist Jesper Eklow (aka DzThe Governordz) self-effacingly. Boogie takes skill and we haven’t honed those skills yet. The band’s sound is a meltdown of metal, psychedelic and classic rock with a heavy dose of riffage, a kick-ass beat and super-cryptic lyrics. It’s thunderous and mellow at once.

The Audreys
We are thrilled to have the bittersweet honour of hosting the Audreys’ final show before taking a break from touring and making records for a while.
The Audreys are songwriting duo Taasha Coates and Tristan Goodall. Formed in Adelaide in 2004, they have become one of Australia’s most respected folk rock acts & ARIA award winners. They like vintage clothes, vinyl records, drinking, touring and each other.

Koral and the Goodbye Horses
“…Adelaide’s Koral & The Goodbye Horses straddle a line between giants like PJ Harvey and more contemporary voices like Ainslie Wills and Anna Calvidz– Rip It Up SAM Award nominated noir alt-rockers Koral & The Goodbye Horses released their debut EP Nocturnes to critical acclaim in 2015.”

Hana & Jessie-Lee
Hana & Jessie-Lee are a honky-tonk, country and western whiskey drinkin’ duo that arose from the band The Sloe Ruin. After fronting as lead singer and lead twangin’ guitarist, the two decided to continue the boot stomping after the band ended in mid 2015. Singing songs of heart break, late nights at the bar and travelling the world with a hip-flask of single malt, the soulful vocal tones and punchy lead guitar licks will steal your attention in the first line. Having already played supports for Tex Perkins, The Kill Devil Hills, and American country singer
Sam Outlaw, the pair have some special shows coming up in the new year, as well as a brand new two track single to be released in early 2016.

Ollie English
“Ollie English is a singer-songwriter, guitarist from Adelaide, South Australia. The blues musician just released his new single I Know You’re Gonna Leave, surprisingly forceful yet emotive. With debut EP Cabin Thoughts expected for release in late October, this serves as a nice preview. A slow building and ominous track, it showcases Ollie’s raw vocals and composition skills. The subtle guitar melody develops into a stomping blues riff backed by a lazy bass-line and shuffling drums. I can’t wait to hear more of his dark, brooding sound” – (Melina Scarfo, Made Of Honey)

Return bus transfers ex Adelaide are available to make things even easier for you!

Tickets are via OzTix $79pp show only (bus transfer + $36pp).

See you there beautiful people!

Bethany Wines

Bethany logo with 150 years vineyard and cellar door



Positioned between Barossa and Eden Valleys, Bethany vines are planted to follow the gentle undulation of the surrounding alluvial hills. First planted in 1852 by the Schrapel family, today these old vines produce wines of intense concentrated fruit characters, wines that are a natural reflection of the unique terroir at Bethany.

The Schrapel family invites you to join them in celebrating the 30th anniversary of Bethany wines. We offer a full range of exceptional varietal, individual vineyard wines. Visit our cellar door and taste our award winning whites and reds whilst enjoying stunning views across the Barossa.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Turkey Flat Vineyards

Full page fax print A little bit about our history

We at Turkey Flat are the proud custodians of an unbroken line of commitment to Barossa viticulture and wine that stretches back five generations to the planting of the first ‘Ancestor’ vines in 1847.

The impetus for Christie Schulz to make the transition from grape growers to winemakers came in 1987 when she realised the historic property had to be saved from the Government’s well-meaning, but ultimately destructive vine-pull scheme. The identity of this now iconic winery also speaks of its ties to this place, known locally at settlement in the 1840s as ‘Turkey Flat’ after the large flocks of plains turkeys (Australian Bustards – also adopted as our mascot) gathered along its river banks.

Spring 2013

The old vines and family’s original 186s butcher shop (now Cellar Door) still play an integral role in life at Turkey Flat today. Here the winemaking team pays homage to this unique history by creating wines of integrity, elegance and refined power.

Our Cellar Door is open 7 days (except Good Friday, Christmas Day & Boxing Day) 11am-5pm.

What’s a shared glass of wine in a beautiful garden or by a roaring fire without a little something to eat?  We offer small bites to solve this very problem – simple, but tasty options to fill the gaps between lunch & dinner.


We’re a quaint, little Cellar Door, so we request that groups please contact us for a booking.
