Adelaide Hills

The Adelaide Hills is a rugged area east of Adelaide in South Australia. Known for its cool-climate wines, it centres on the mountain and busy city of Mount Barker. Former German settlements include leafy Hahndorf, with its pubs and galleries, and Lobethal, famed for its handicrafts and Christmas lights. Kangaroos and koalas roam the Cleland Wildlife Park, while Gumeracha town is home to the Big Rocking Horse.
