Want a retreat from the hustle of Adelaide? Head to the hills, Stirling to be precise

Want a retreat from the hustle of Adelaide? Head to the hills, Stirling to be precise

Life In My Hood - Stirling, South Australia

by Dave Stephenson

Stirling is an historic village in the Adelaide Hills, about 15 kilometres from the city centre. So if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Adelaide but would prefer the peace and quiet of a village in the hills, Stirling is the place for you.

Dave Stephenson, Stirling born and bred, shows us around his home town, with the help of his friend Rani. Dave says “Stirling is a retreat from the hustle of Adelaide. Yet this village in Adelaide’s hinterland is just minutes from the city.”

Dave’s video guide to Stirling is part of the travel video blog series, Life In My Hood, which gives visitors a local’s perspective on cool neighbourhoods around Australia.

COFFEE IN MY HOOD

For the best coffee in Stirling, Dave says head to
Konditorei Coffee Lounge, 37-39 Mt Barker Rd
“The ‘Kondi’ is a popular Adelaide Hills café in the busy Stirling Arcade
Its coffee reflects the area’s German heritage”

GROCERIES IN MY HOOD

Dave says the best place to buy groceries in the Adelaide Hills is
the Stirling Fruit Mart, 39 Mt Barker Rd
“We in Stirling really take this place for granted for our fresh produce
Great local greengrocer for the hills

HANGING IN MY HOOD

Dave says the best thing to do in Stirling is to use it as a base camp for Bush walks

Take the high road to Mount Lofty or the low to Woorabinda Lake”
