Lobethal  South Australia

    •   Show me: a map of Lobethal

Lobethal, on the western slopes of the Mount Lofty Ranges, might be small, but it packs quite a tourist punch.

A short, scenic drive east from Adelaide, Lobethal was first settled in 1841 when Pastor Gotthard Fritzsche led 18 families fleeing persecution in their native Prussia to the promised land in the "Valley of Praise".

The past is faithfully preserved in the Archives and Historical Museum collection which is framed round the old Lobethal College, built in 1845. And if you are in search of family enchantment look no further than the Fairyland Village whose 14 separate chalets each depict a different fairytale or nursery rhyme. Crusty loaf lovers will be delighted to learn that the Lobethal Bakery has an enviable reputation for producing the best German-style bread in Australia.

Sweet-tooths must take the short drive to nearby Woodside and Melba’s Chocolate Factory where you can watch your favourites crafted in the old fashioned way and then, of course, taste. Woodside also boasts an emporium with 10 rooms of antiques and collectibles.
