Adelaide Hills

Wind your way down leafy lanes, stopping at villages dappled in light. The towns of Aldgate, Stirling, Oakbank, Woodside, Birdwood, Crafers, Mount Barker and Hahndorf are all within an hour’s drive of Adelaide. You’ll find cafes turning out fresh brews and pastries, thriving artisan cheesemakers, restaurants serving South Australia’s best produce and welcoming cellar doors. Boutique spirits and craft beer are flourishing too. Orchards and vineyards abound: this cool-climate haven nurtures a wide range of fruit and vegetables. Harvest your own or stop by a roadside stall to take your pick.  

Fancy a tipple? Call past Ambleside Distillers to sample a range of innovative hand-crafted spirits. Wineries including Golding, Shaw + Smith and The Lane offer tastings and delicious food, with great meals also on offer at local pubs (those in Uraidla, Crafers, Stirling and Norton Summit are particularly popular).
