Enjoy the bountiful Adelaide Hills, nestled just half an hour away from downtown Adelaide. A cluster of quaint towns that include Stirling, Birdwood, Crafters, Mount Barker, Lobethal, and Australia’s oldest German settlement of Hahndorf, make for ideal bases to explore the picture-perfect countryside. The Mount Lofty summit affords the best view of Adelaide, while the Palmer Lookout offers a picturesque landscape littered with large granite rocks. The botanic gardens boast fern galleries and rhododendron blooms, and Cleland Wildlife Park offers sightings of local wildlife. Between picking strawberries at Beerenberg, and tasting cool-climate plus biodynamic wines at the many vineyards, explore weekly farmers’ markets, which showcase some of the region’s finest produce. Apart from artist studios and various galleries including The Cedars by Sir Hans Heysen, admire the Hills Sculpture Trail that delights with contemporary public art. Experience craft gins, knife makers, vibrant handicrafts, gourmet foods, live entertainment, forest trails, adventure sports, and a cable car ride all at Adelaide Hills!
