Hahndorf & Mount Barker
Hahndorf and Mount Barker are located just 7 kilometers apart, yet offer the visitor a world of difference in choice.
Hahndorf has come a long way since Captain Dirk Hahn helped to settle our first European inhabitants’ way back in 1839. Today’s Hahndorf is a State listed Heritage Town, and has retained it’s strong German heritage and feel. It boasts a myriad of experiences to suit every visitor and is a place not to be missed.
Hahndorf is a feast for the senses, with its German architecture featuring many Fachwerk buildings, quaint shopping experiences, along with a new mix of fine dining, exciting and chic businesses and a broad range of accommodation choices, all blended between the 100 year old elm and plane trees which line the main street. Add to that a passionate artistic and cultural community, centered around The Cedars (Sir Hans Heysen’s home) and the Hahndorf Academy, the sounds, colour, charm, character and feel of this town has to be experienced - and all this just 20 minutes from Adelaide!
Just a short ten minute drive from Hahndorf lays Mount Barker, a thriving residential, commercial and service centre of excellence for the Adelaide Hills. Here you will find a state of the art cinema complex, a good caravan park, linear trails, recreation parks, sporting complexes, swimming pool, restaurants, cafes, coffee houses, and all the services that you may need while on tour.
The Mount Barker Summit and National Award winning Laratinga Wetlands are a must to any visitor. More information on both can be found under the attractions section of this website.
