This article is about the mountain range. For other uses, see Barossa (disambiguation).

The Barossa Ranges are located in the state of South Australia in Australia. They are a part of the southern Mount Lofty Ranges and primarily run along the eastern side of the Barossa Valley. The range was named by Colonel William Light in 1837 after the Barrosa Range in Spain, to which he found similarities. The Barossa Ranges is the source for the North Para River and its tributary Jacob's Creek. It is also home to some of the many wineries in the region, including those in Eden Valley. The Heysen Walking Trail and the Mawson Cycling Trail both traverse the range. The highest point of the range is Mount Kaiser Stuhl and forms part of the Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park.
