CLELAND WILDLIFE PARK
Everyone loves those cute and cuddly creatures, and you can get up close and personal with them at Cleland Wildlife Park. Listen to a keeper talk, get a close encounter with a koala, or take a night time guided walk on the sprawling surrounds of the sanctuary.
MORIALTA CONSERVATION PARK
Get outdoors and marvel at the rugged ridges, stunning waterfalls and gullies that make up Morialta Conservation Park. Morialta is perfect for if you’re a bird watcher or a wildlife enthusiast, with an array of birdlife, reptiles, frogs and more.
VISIT THE CEDARS
The Cedars is a heritage listed property once home to one of Australia’s most iconic landscape artists, Sir Hans Heysen. The homestead sits on 60 hectares, and you can stroll the rambling cottage garden, take a tour, browse the shop, or visit the studio where Heyson himself painted his masterpieces.
BEERENBERG STRAWBERRY FARM
There’s nothing better than a day out in the sun, picking your own produce. At Beerenberg Strawberry Farm, you can do just that. Take a punnet or two home, they’re even better than from the supermarket because you harvested them yourself with love!
VISIT QUAINT HAHNDORF
Hahndorf is Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement, and you’ll adore the quaint cottages, tree-lined streets and vibrant retail on offer in the small town. It’s a beautiful spot for a picnic in spring or summer, to cosy up with a hot chocolate in a café during winter, or to admire the autumn colours.
DO A WINE TOUR
The Adelaide Hills are famous for their wines, so why not indulge in a few wine tastings? You can visit Hahndorf Hill Winery or Howard Vineyard, and get a few bottles to take home as souvenirs for your loved ones, or just yourself!
All of these attractions are within an hour’s drive of your accommodation at Mount Lofty House.
