A place I know well - my hometown and workplace. So much to see and do you'll need more than a day and I'll need to bring you my Lobethal series in several parts.
Lobethal is the kind of place where people still smile and say hello when they pass you in the street. Lobethal is a small community of around 2000 people located approximately 35km from Adelaide in the picturesque Adelaide Hills. The town is known internationally for its annual Christmas Lights Festival.. However, Lobethal has much more to offer than Christmas Lights and is a worthy addition to any trip to the Adelaide Hills. It may seem that all roads lead to Lobethal with various possible routes – my favourite being Gorge Road via Cudlee Creek. Travelling to Lobethal along rambling country roads winding through vineyards and orchards you leave the stress of city life behind. The air here is crisp and clean. The township of Lobethal is situated within a valley which enhances its village feel.
Both in and nearby Lobethal you will find heritage buildings, wine tasting, boutique beers, fantastic foods and fresh seasonal produce such as apples, pears, strawberries and cherries.
In my next blog, I'll take you to the Lobethal Bierhaus - the best micro-brewery and restaurant in South Australia!
