Bridgewater, SA


Nestled within the Adelaide Hills, Bridgewater provides a pleasant village retreat for visitors. Delight in the local European gardens and lines of deciduous trees along the creek. Visit the award winning St Githa’s Garden, best seen in spring and summer. This formal English garden features lawns, roses, perennials and outstanding floral displays.


Grab the brochure, “Two Walks in Bridgewater”, which covers most of the historic buildings in Bridgewater including the Millers Cottage (1860), the Bridgewater Mill, the Bridgewater Inn, the General Store (1877) and the Old Police Station. Both walks are ideal ways to experience the beauty of the area.

The elegant Bridgewater Mill Restaurant provides exquisite meals and fine wine at this restored flour mill, where the giant waterwheel still turns. The Bridgewater Mill also houses the cellar door for Petaluma’s famous wines, and the cellars where the company’s sparkling wines are made. Enjoy wine tasting, and sit outside to dine while overlooking the spectacular waterwheel, or inside the renovated historic building.
