The magnificent Adelaide Hills has long been a peaceful country retreat for the people of Adelaide. The variety of its landscapes, the quality of its food and wine, the abundance of its wildlife and the richness of its culture make for an engaging and memorable destination. We’ve scoured the region to bring you the very best experiences, from wineries and craft breweries to picking your own fruit, cuddling koalas and exploring towns and villages.
Let us introduce you to some of the experiences and places that will leave you wanting more. Whether you are planning your first-ever visit to the Adelaide Hills or seeking inspiration for a regular return visit, our experience and network of partners will prove invaluable.
Although you can be in the Adelaide Hills in just 20 minutes from Adelaide, it feels a world away. Come for the day and stay for the night, waking up in a cosy cottage, historic pub, luxury manor or private villa.
Tickle your palate and tempt your taste buds as you tour the wineries, craft breweries and cider houses. Sample the best local produce from the farm gate or farmers market or fine food from providores, restaurants and cafes.
Each distinct season brings new reasons to visit and changes the character of the region – bright and fresh in spring, lazy and long in summer, colourful and glorious in autumn, snug and warm in winter.
Have a lofty affair with artists, musicians, architects and dreamers who take inspiration from the landscape and flourish in the region. One visit to the Adelaide Hills and you’ll see why this area has fuelled the creative fires of so many artists. The picturesque farmlands, breathtaking vistas and charming villages of the Adelaide Hills look like they were meant to be painted.
