City dwellers escape here for its refreshing cool-climate wines, picturesque natural environment and diverse array of wildlife.
Whichever season you visit, the region is filled with many photo-worthy opportunities. In spring, pear and apple orchards are in full blossom. In autumn, be treated to stunning displays of red and yellow at the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden.
The area’s natural bushland is the habitat of many Australian wildlife, so don’t forget to say hi to a koala or kangaroo you spot out and about.
The charming small towns of Stirling, Mount Barker, Hahndorf and Aldgate are also worth popping by and within an hour’s drive from Adelaide.
