One of the Adelaide Hill’s most famous towns, Hahndorf is Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement.

Hahndorf has plenty of souvenir shops, craft outlets and galleries to explore, including the Hahndorf Academy. There’s still a strong German flavour in the town, most evident in the smallgood outlets and German bakeries that line the main street.

Visitors can pick their own strawberries at Beerenberg Strawberry Farm or visit the former home and studio of Sir Hans Heysen, The Cedars. There are several good winery cellar doors in the area and the Hahndorf Farm Barn is an enjoyable stop for families.

Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
