When Adelaide acquaintances invite you to head for the hills, they’re not dispatching you to the boondocks. On the contrary, they are inviting you to share in the Festival City’s crowning glory, the Adelaide Hills.
And when it comes to day or overnight tripping, the Hills literally have it all - ethnic arts and crafts, forests and ornamental gardens, songbird-studded bushwalks and spectacular views, historic inns and wildlife parks, fresh and gourmet food markets, the National Motor Museum and the largest rocking horse in the world, award-winning restaurants and utterly charming guest houses, wineries and old gold diggings.
And if you are all tuckered out by the time you return to your digs, recharge the energy banks with a tasting visit to Woodside Cheesewrights or Melba’s Chocolate and Confectionery Factory.
Woodside Horse and Trail Riding Centre guarantees to clear the cobwebs of city living with a range of riding trails that allow you to spend as little as one hour or an entire day in the saddle. The full day trail ride includes a break for a BBQ and beer lunch.
