Uraidla  South Australia

The small Adelaide Hills village of Uraidla is central to this delightful area to which State Governors and the Adelaide social set once retired to escape the summer heat of the city below.

But those annual, vice-regal retreats ended in January 1955 when the then Governor, Sir Robert George and his family had to shelter behind a protective bank while the Marble Hill mansion which had served so many of his predecessors since 1879 was razed by a bush fire.

There are plans to restore what is left of the Governor’s summer mansion, but, in the meantime, there is plenty on offer in the Hills to keep the visitor occupied and entertained.

The Hills are alive to the pageantry of history, of multicultural festivals. They are also graced with an extraordinary network of bush trails on which walkers brush shoulders with all manner of native flora and fauna.

Uraidla, which hosts a traditional Agricultural Show in February, lies just to the north-east of the Cleland Conservation Park, which offers a variety of experiences for the visitor. Set in a stately eucalypt forest, Cleland gives the visitor the chance to meet native animals in the wildlife park, to relax on a range of bush trails and to enjoy some stunning views.
