One of the first areas in South Australia to be settled by European settlers, the extensive Adelaide Hills, comprising part of the Mount Lofty ranges are almost as historic as they are stunning: with strong Germanic influences that date back to the area’s original Bavarian settlers.
Being in such a serene and idyllic location, it would be a crying shame if Adelaide Hills singles didn’t make the most of all this natural beauty when dating in the Adelaide Hills.
Our dreamy date suggestions:
1. A picnic at lookout point
It’s the kind of date that could have been plucked from the script of any 90’s teen movie, but it’s actually a charming and delightfully free dating idea. Wait for some beautiful mid-summer evening, pack up the car with a home-made picnic and wine and make your way up to The Mount Lofty area. Eat dinner under the stars while looking out at the town below. It’ bound to make an impression.
2. Strawberry picking in Beerenberg Farm
Professional singles may be tied down to evening dates but students, mature daters or shift workers might prefer a day time activity. ‘Pick your own strawberry’ season runs from Spring to Autumn each year and could provide the perfect, fun way of getting to know another during the summer months.
3. Visit Fairyland
It’s a theme park set deep within the beautiful Adelaide Hills, based on magical fairy stories, what more could you want from Adelaide Hills dating?
4. Hahndorf Farm Barn
It may have been devised with kids in mind, but there’s nothing stopping a couple of BIG KIDS from having their fair share of laughs here. You and your date can get up close and personal with ponies, alpacas, even kangaroos! If you’re worried about feeling too connected with your inner child you could always go for a sophisticated meal after the date; Udder Delights is close by, and is excellent.
5. Wine Tasting
All those valleys and sub-valleys have made this a premier wine region within Australia, so why not make the most of this and organise a wine tasting when dating in Adelaide Hills? McLaren Vale offer chauffeured winery tours and weekend breaks while others in the region, such as Pertaringa, allow you to take your own food and just relax on their decking enjoying their beautiful wines.
