The Adelaide Hills Convention Centre is a newly renovated, iconic, modern 2 level venue, 20 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD in the Germanic Township of Hahndorf. Sitting atop 32 acres of manicured grounds boasting uninterrupted 360° views of the picturesque Adelaide Hills. The Upper Level has a modern yet contemporary feel with an open plan space offering never-ending Mount Lofty views through floor-to-ceiling concertina doors which lead out onto a generous 150m2 spacious upper deck. The Lower Level [The Deck], in contrast, offers a warm rustic ambience boasting 100 year old wooden floor boards, exposed beams and timber pillars from the historic Port Adelaide Wool Stores. As with the upper level, full length concertina doors invite you out onto an expansive timber deck which showcases The Adelaide Hills in all of its natural glory.
Located just 20 minutes from Adelaide, Hahndorf is Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement and celebrated 175 years in 2014. It still has a strong German flavour most evident in the smallgoods outlets, bakeries, pubs, restaurants and cafes that line the bustling main street. While its proximity to Adelaide makes Hahndorf a perennial favourite as a day trip destination, most visitors wish they had longer to explore all the township has to offer so consider accommodation from the wide range available.
