Flanking Parafield Airport in Adelaide’s northern suburbs, Para Hills is a springboard for excursions into the Barossa and Eden valleys, one of Australia’s best known and most significant viticultural and winemaking regions.
It is an area in which a rich European heritage and the fresh vitality and inventiveness of Australia have come together to produce a unique community and landscape.
Here you can taste premium wines in settings that might have been plucked from central Europe, browse on fine food that mirrors the cultural mix, reflect on the meaning of life in solid old Lutheran churches, tap the foot to traditional folk music and glory in the panorama of seemingly endless vines criss-crossing the gently rolling hills. And it is all within 30 minutes driving distance of the Para Hills suburbia.
Para Hills is within comfortable driving distance of Para Wirra Park, one of the major recreational reserves in the north Adelaide metropolitan area. Set in the northern Mt Lofty Ranges, Wirra embraces an extensive network of picnic grounds and shelters, walking trails, gas barbecues and sporting facilities.
