Life in the Adelaide Hills
We’re just sharing a few of our current favourites, on what is a very long list of things that make life in the hills pretty sensational.
Strawberries in summer, apples in winter, scrumptious cheeses, farmers markets and delicious wines, beers and ciders – the hills has a pretty decent local off er. Our current favourites include: a long pub lunch at the refurbished Uraidla Hotel, the Espressocello from Applewood Distillery and the creamy ash coated goats cheese from Woodside Cheese.
Walking in the Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens, exploring the Laratinga Wetlands, horse-riding, mountain biking, nature playgrounds – there is no need to be indoors all the time. Our current favourites include: Saturday morning parkrun at Laratinga Wetlands, bushwalking around the Woorabinda Bushland Reserve and visiting Warrawong Sanctuary.
The town centre of Mount Barker has everything – supermarkets, specialty shops, cafes, restaurants, banks, cinemas, homemaker centres, parks, doctors and hospitals and civic services. The freeway connects Mount Barker easily to Adelaide in just over half an hour too.
Schools and community
People who live in the hills are much more likely to volunteer and contribute to their local community. There are community gardens, a huge range of sporting clubs and a vibrant artistic community. There are also a number of private and state primary and secondary schools established in the area.
