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.
