The winding road beckons you, each corner revealing a new delight and a promise of more to come.

With closely spaced townships and quite roads, the Adelaide Hills is an ideal place to explore by car. Take a back road and see where it leads you - getting off the beaten track is part of the fun. A road trip on our rising and falling, twisting and turning roads past sensational vistas, leafy trees, vineyards and quaint villages is a highlight of the region - classic or luxury sports vehicle desirable but not essential!

Navigational tip – don’t rely on your sense of direction to navigate the Adelaide Hills, bring a good map with you or pick one up at the Adelaide Hills Visitor Information Centre.
