Rise and Shine


Begin your 24 hours in Adelaide, a stone's throw from Hallett Cove Beach, with a hearty breakfast at the Boatshed Hallett Cove. Sip a hot coffee while listening to the waves and enjoy some smashed avo on toast or one of the classic brekky items from their mouth-watering menu.

Explore Hallett Cove


After breakfast, head to Hallett Cove Conservation Park, a trove of geological finds. Get your walking shoes on and pack the essentials to explore the park.

Walk the Coast Park Path Boardwalk, a scenic walk following the cliffs through the park. Or discover the Glacier Hike, which features Black Cliff Lookout, Sugarloaf, and other significant geological points of interest. Hallett Cove Conservation Park has no shortage of picture-worthy locations to snap and incredible sights to see.



Come lunchtime, you're sure to have walked up an appetite. Take the scenic drive through the Adelaide Hills to reach your lunch destination.

Patch Kitchen & Garden is located inside the old post office, which has since been refurbished.

It offers a warm, inviting atmosphere and a delectable menu that changes to highlight seasonal produce.

Another terrific lunch option is Fourth Hill. Set against a charming backdrop featuring a beautiful garden space is an airy restaurant serving freshly made bread, pasta, and sweet treats that showcase local produce.

Visit a Winery


The Adelaide Hills area has an abundance of stunning wineries and cellar doors to visit while driving through.

A few to consider stopping by are Tapanappa Wines, their cellar door features a large deck where you can sit back, look out to the rolling hills, and sip a beautiful glass of your choice.

Another wonderful winery is the Ashton Hills Vineyard, known for its Pinot Noir and exceptional Riesling.

Finally, Shaw + Smith is set on beautiful land and produces award-winning wines worth trying.
