We took a trip, from our base in Glenelg, up into the Adelaide Hills to check out Mount Lofty and the historic German village of Hahndorf with our travelling buddies Bob & Michelle (maplink). It was a great day checking out the sights.
From the Mount Lofty Visitors Centre you can see all the way to the coast as well as the Adelaide CBD and Glenelg where we were staying. The view is pretty spectacular to say the least.
We then spent a few hours in the village of Hahndorf. Very pretty place with lots of history. This was a couple of days before Remembrance Day and the locals were planting out hundreds of hand crocheted poppies in the ANZAC memorial park and it was looking great; the lady said they had about another 500 to go – great work.
We dropped into the German Village Shop for a browse. They have the most beautifully hand carved Cuckoo clocks and Pinocchio dolls
