Or make the journey during the day with views stretching out to the Adelaide Hills on one side and the coast on the other. Night climbs are also available, where you can sit back and admire the sparkling city lights twinkling beneath the night sky.

Hennessy Rooftop Bar

Hennessy Rooftop Bar

At level 13, the Mayfair Hotel’s Hennessy Rooftop Bar represents the height of city chic, with beautifully appointed and stylish interior spaces leading out to a glass-topped alfresco terrace and balcony. Whether it’s the view looking down Adelaide’s Rundle Mall spanning out to the Adelaide Hills, or simply the unique and sophisticated venue itself, you’ll want to snap up a gram as you sip away on their specialty ‘Honey Trap’ cocktail served in only the best crystal glassware.


Atop a heritage building, 2KW offers a refined rooftop restaurant and bar boasting uninterrupted city to sea views. Wine or dine as you admire views of the Torrens Riverbank Precinct, Festival Theatre, Adelaide Oval and Government House.

Mount Lofty Botanic Garden

Lofty Botanic Gardens

Put on your walking shoes, pack your camera and get ready to explore a botanical adventure in the Adelaide Hills. Mount Lofty Botanic Garden sprawls across 97 colourful and diverse hectares, of which we guarantee there’s something new to discover around every corner. The best time of year to visit the Garden is during Autumn when the warm hues of red, orange and yellow line the tree tops.

Carrick Hill

Carrick Hill is a significant South Australian cultural tourism attraction. It compromises a major heritage building housing internationally significant art collections and original subsidiary buildings such as stables situated approximately 40 hectares of land. The property is located close to the city of Adelaide in the Adelaide foothills with superb views stretching to Gulf St Vincent. Take in views from the top of Carrick Hill or explore the Formal Gardens, an elegant take on of the English country park with a variety of roses, manicured hedges, lawn terracing and stone paving.

A popular addition to the grounds is the Children’s Storybook Trail which comprises a series of landscaped scenes taken from various classic children’s stories that families can discover and enjoy.



Hahndorf is Adelaide’s oldest surviving German settlement and is a drawcard for the young and old to come and enjoy the town’s charm and hospitality. Just short 30-minute drive from Adelaide via the South Eastern Freeway, explore architecturally fascinating buildings, appreciate rich ancestry and unearth ancient folklore – indigenous dreamtime and migrant artistry.

Brighton Beach

A local hot spot for sunset shots encompassing the iconic Brighton Jetty. Brighton Beach is Adelaide’s favourite seaside town boasting a relaxed vibe and charming appeal. Mostly popular in the summer months but don’t let that stop you from enjoying a wintry morning stroll or photo op at dusk along Brighton Beach.
