Get­ting to the Ade­laide Hills

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Special Feature -

By Car The Ade­laide Hills is eas­ily ac­cessed from Ade­laide city, whether head­ing south-east, east or north-east. Travel time by car to re­gional gate­way town­ships such as Crafers, Sum­mer­town and Nor­ton Sum­mit is less than 30 min­utes from Ade­laide and around 40 min­utes from Ade­laide Air­port. If you are driv­ing from the city cen­tre, the Ade­laide Hills can be ac­cessed via the sixlane South East­ern Free­way, which links Ade­laide to Mel­bourne. Ex­its to ma­jor desti­na­tions, in­clud­ing Mount Lofty (Crafers), Stir­ling, Bridge­wa­ter, Hah­n­dorf, Bird­wood, Lo­bethal and Mount Barker are well sign­posted along the free­way. The Hills can also be ac­cessed via the Tor­rens Val­ley Scenic Route which com­mences on North East Road at Tea Tree Gully. The route winds its way through the Chain of Ponds reser­voirs to Gumer­acha and Bird­wood.

By Taxi Taxis are an­other vi­able trans­port op­tion if you don't want to drive or catch a bus. Catch­ing a taxi from Ade­laide CBD to Stir­ling – the near­est ma­jor town in the Ade­laide Hills – will cost ap­prox­i­mately AUD$50 one way, and trav­el­ling from the city to Hah­n­dorf will cost ap­prox­i­mately AUD$70 one way.

Drive on Left in Aus­tralia Take care when driv­ing on Aus­tralian roads. Be sure to drive on the left-hand side of two-way roads. Obey the road signs and re­mem­ber that speed lim­its are strictly en­forced in Aus­tralia. You must not drive if your blood al­co­hol level is 0.05 per­cent or higher, nor are you per­mit­ted to use a hand­held mo­bile phone when driv­ing.
