Where to Stay

See the map below for locations of the 4 Aus3Days events. There are many accommodation options in Adelaide, Adelaide Hills and Murray Bridge that are within easy driving distance of all arenas, typically within 30 minutes to 1 hour.

  • Take the South-Eastern Freeway (M1) to Heathfield High School for the Prologue.
  • Pymton (Day 1) is north-east of Nairne near Rockleigh.
  • Ngaralta Country (Day 2), at the Hellenic Park, and Narrinyeri Hills (Day 3), at Kinchina Conservation Park, are both near Monarto Safari Park and Murray Bridge.

This opens the tourism regions of Adelaide Hills and Lower Murraylands for you to choose from, as well as the city.

Things to do

Monarto Safari Park

Monarto Safari Park is the big attraction in the area: it’s now the largest safari experience outside of Africa. Spanning more than 1,500 hectares and home to more than 50 species of exotic and native mammals, birds and reptiles, you can fit every major zoo in Australia inside the park and still have land left over. The park is 60 minutes (70 km) from Adelaide and home to some of Australia’s largest lion prides and giraffe herds.

Adelaide Hills & Murray Bridge

Here’s a list of the top things to do for people visiting the Adelaide Hills/Murrraylands regions:

Hahndorf: This historic German village, too kitsch for some, offers a good sausage and a relaxed tourism experience.

Cleland Wildlife Park: If you haven’t hade enough native Australian wildlife, including kangaroos, koalas, and emus. You can even hold a koala and learn about these fascinating creatures.

Hike to Mount Lofty: The highest point in the Adelaide Hills offers hiking trails of varying difficulties. The summit rewards you with panoramic views.

Wine Tasting: The Adelaide Hills is a renowned wine region, producing cool-climate wines so a visit to a cellar door won’t go amiss.

Mount Lofty Botanic Garden: For a leisurely walk, the garden showcases a diverse collection of plants, including rare and endangered species

Art and Culture: Explore the local art scene by visiting galleries and studios showcasing works from talented local artists.

Stirling Village:  For shopping, cafes, and Stirling Hotel, it’s definitely worth a look, as are Bridgewater and Aldgate.

Adelaide Hills Farmers’ Market: Open on the weekend, an opportunity to taste and purchase fresh, locally grown produce and artisanal products.

Historic Railway: Ride the heritage steam train, the SteamRanger.

Places to Eat

If you know where to go, Adelaide rarely disappoints for eating out. The city is known for its small bars and eclectic eating establishments.

There are many restaurant precincts but a favourite is Gouger Street around the Central Market – head towards Victoria Square and you can’t go wrong for cuisine choice. Being Easter you should check to see what’s open in advance and you might need to book.
