From local hand-made cheese and truffles to world-class wines, walking trails to famous waterfall hikes and cute eateries, there’s something for every one of your guests to enjoy in the Adelaide Hills.

Whether you’re planning a one-day or weekend event, there’s plenty of options to entertain your guests.

The Adelaide Hills is known in Australia (and around the world) for its mix of good food and wine, stunning landscapes, and wildlife.

If you’re looking for a location for your conference, wedding, birthday, engagement party or other special event, here’s why the charming Adelaide Hills is the perfect backdrop for all.


The Food & Wine

While Adelaide undoubtedly has some of the best wine in Australia, the Hills is one of the regions that strengthens this title. Hahndorf is peppered with wineries on the outskirts of town, and dozens more in nearby towns.

And with every good wine, there’s food. Whether you like pub food, shared platters at wineries, taste testing at craft breweries and cider houses, wandering farmer’s markets or wining and dining five-star restaurants, the Hills has something for every taste.
We use locally-sourced ingredients and produce to create the dishes for your event.


The Beauty

Whether you’re marrying the love of your life, gazing out to endless rolling hills or celebrating a product launch with your company (and potential customers), this region is the perfect setting.

The pace of life in the Hills is just right. It has that country retreat feel to it that’s rich in culture and heritage. Get up close and personal with wildlife, flora and fauna – the type that you won’t find in the city.


The Seasons

Every season has its own unique personality. It’s the perfect ‘excuse’ to visit every season. The summer vibe. The maroon and yellow autumn leaves. The cosy winter feel (rustic cellar doors). The spring blooms.


The Connectivity

Accessibility for guests is a huge factor for any event, whether it’s a conference, wedding or special event, and that’s what makes the Adelaide Hills so attractive. It’s hard to imagine that in a 20-minute drive from Adelaide, you’re in what feels like another land. As your guests stroll through charming townships or take a wine tour visiting all the amazing wineries in the region. Being so close to the city, yet so distanced from the hustle and bustle of city-life makes Hahndorf the ideal location to host your event.


The Facilities

The Hills have that laid-back, country feel going for it, but with award-winning facilities and entertainment options. You can have your event in the Hills, and stay there for the day (or weekend) with the long list of attractions and activities to do close by.

Try local cuisine, watch live music at a pub, go strawberry picking, browse shops and markets, go hiking and bike riding, and bird and flower spotting. It’s all here, in the Adelaide Hills.

The Adelaide Hills: the perfect ‘just out of the city’ escape.
