Several boutique cellar-doors are based in the area where you can taste and purchase a huge range of wines from across the region. Or if you prefer the full experience, Hahndorf is just a short drive from some of the best wineries in the region including The Lane Vineyard, Nepenthe Wines and Shaw & Smith. Away from the main village, you can pick your own strawberries at Beerenberg Farm, take the children to the Hahndorf Farm Barn or get involved in local sport – basketball, netball, cricket, football and bowls are all popular.

Despite being in the heart of the Adelaide Hills, the town is well-serviced by public buses and is a smooth 25-minute commute to the CBD via the South Eastern Freeway. It’s a picturesque suburb in all seasons but autumn brings with it a special romance, with a beautiful show of colourful foliage lining the streets.
