You’ll find a plethora of country pubs that serve up authentic Australian dishes like the Pie Floater and homemade bread and jams. 

2. Drink

Adelaide Hills is recognized the world over for its quality wine production. The regions cooler climate means it can produce wines that other areas of Australia are unable to. Expect well-rounded Pinot-Noirs, fruity Chardonnays and crisp Sauvignon Blancs. There is no shortage of wineries to visit in the area with some notable ones being Bird In Hand winery and Hahndorf Hill Winery.

There is so much to explore in Adelaide Hills for all walks of life. Whether you prefer quiet walks through the wilderness or indulging in delectable foods and wines, there are options for you. There are many historic villages in the area to explore, including Hahndorf, Aldgate, Stirling, Woodside and Crafers.
