Our Hahndorf Getaway!


Last week we stayed in Hahndorf, Australia's oldest surviving German settlement. Hahndorf is a quaint, little town in the Adelaide Hills, known for its numerous eateries and cute little shops, all along the one street. I'd actually won a competition earlier in the year, so our little holiday was part of my prize! Pretty much all of our meals were free, as four $100 vouchers for The Haus were included, plus breakfast daily. We also got free family entry into The Hahndorf Farm Barn, which I highly recommend, especially if you have kids. It was so much fun to get up close and interact with the animals! My personal favourite places to check out if you're in Hahndorf are....

~ The German Arms (Tuesday nights they have a Magician/Balloon Artist for the kids)
~ Hahndorf Farm Barn
~ Udder Delights Cheese Cellar (oh hi, Triple Cream Brie!)
~ Beerenberg Family Farm (you can go strawberry picking November - April!)
~ Chocolate @ No. 5
~ The Haus
~ Menz FruChoc Shop
~ Hahndorf Sweets
~ Fairies In Your Garden (I left with a gorgeous Unicorn mug!)
~ Hahndorf Puppet Shop
~ Hahndorf Candlemaker (I bought an amazing Rainforest candle)
~ Otto's Bakery

The Old Mill and Hahndorf Inn are also amazing and Melba's Chocolate Factory (yes, a CHOCOLATE FACTORY) is 15 minutes drive away in Woodside, but we didn't remember to go. Aargh! Here are the photos....

Hahndorf Puppet Shop. It's wall-to-wall puppets inside this tiny shop!

  11. We love Handorf and have been several times to the Farm Barn. You have to watch that camel and the alpaca always spits at my husband! The kids always remember that. We love the fruit and veggie market too and can recommend a lazy afternoon in the Harndorf Inn with a cheese platter and a few wines :)

  12. I love Hahndorf too! We have been there twice when visiting family. The food, chocolate and general atmosphere is lovely. It's kind of similar to Maleny in QLD in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
