The Adelaide Hills, renowned for its wineries, gourmet produce, cultivated gardens and wildlife make an excellent two or three day tour from the capital.

The landscape is a mix of European farmland and Australian bush, with the hills rising magnificently above the coastal plains. There are historic villages, galleries, gardens, wildlife and lookouts offering wonderful views over this scenic area.

Take a gourmet tour through vineyards for wine tastings or sample German-style produce such as cheese and smallgoods at Hahndorf. Visit a strawberry farm at Netherhill and don't miss the Mount Barker gourmet outlets with breads and smoked seafood specialities.

Accommodation includes charming country cottages and guesthouses set in semi-rural beauty.

Festivals: Highland Gathering (February), Adelaide Hills Harvest Festival (March), Mount Lofty Spring Bulb Festival (April), Bay to Birdwood Run for Vintage Cars (September)

Things to do in the Adelaide Hills include:

  • Cleland Wildlife Park - a conservation park that features marsupials, aviary and nocturnal walk.
  • Big Rocking-Horse - the biggest rocking-horse in the world at The Toy Factory, Gumeracha. See our Travelmate Big Things Guide
