Driving Adventures

It’s a pleasure to drive in the Adelaide Hills, with closely spaced townships, quiet roads and ever-changing scenery. The South Eastern Freeway will have you there in a flash but consider a more scenic route from Adelaide such as North East Road, Gorge Road, Norton Summit Road, Old Norton Summit Road or Greenhill Road.
