Angas River Scenic Drive
This historic transport route was first established in 1839 by John Barton Hack as a track from his Echunga property to Crafers and Adelaide. The route captures the very essence of an Adelaide Hills experience – cafes, restaurants, historic pubs and estates, galleries, arts, crafts, B&Bs, peaceful rural scenes and picturesque villages full of the history of yesteryear.
The 40 km Kangowirrinilla walking and cycling trail travels through the Battunga countryside and the Bull Creek Range, with views to the Lakes, the Coorong and Mt Mt Lofty ranges, to form a loop with the Heysen Trail. This trail also links to Hahndorf, Mt Barker, Strathalbyn, McLaren Vale and Adelaide. Don’t be surprised to meet kangaroos, echidna, rosellas, yellow tailed cockatoos, kookaburras and wedge tailed eagles.
