Beautiful autumn trees in the Adelaide Hills.

Adelaide Hills

South Australia

The Adelaide Hills is one of the oldest wine-growing areas in Australia producing Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon and Pinot Noir.

The Adelaide Hills are part of the Mount Lofty Ranges, east of the city of Adelaide in the state of South Australia. Stretching from the Barossa Valley in the north, to Kuitpo Forest in the south, and barely 30 minutes from Adelaide’s city centre and 45 minutes from the airport, you can experience a change of pace in the Adelaide Hills.

Visitors to Adelaide should ensure they take the time to enjoy the beautiful Adelaide Hills. World-class mountain bike trails are dotted throughout the Adelaide Hills. Enjoy the Adelaide Hills’ walking, bike riding, horse riding or even by rock climbing. The Adelaide Hills changes dramatically with every season, with blooms in the spring, colours of autumn and the lush greenery of winter.

Enjoy one of Australia’s best traditional and contemporary Aboriginal art collections at Ancient Earth Art Gallery in Hahndorf. Grab a rare chance to see dances of the region’s Permangk people. The Yurridla Trail unlocks 40,000 years of stories from the Permangk people, the region’s original inhabitants.

On the city fringe, the 54 km long Yurrebilla Trail is a cultural and environmental discovery walk, linking Belair National Park to Black Hill Conservation Park.
