The Five Best Kids Activities in Hahndorf, Adelaide Hills

Tired of hearing ‘Mum, I’m bored’? For kids big and small, Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills is the perfect place to take the rascals for a day of adventure.

The main street of Hahndorf is always buzzing with excitement, and there is plenty to keep them occupied all day long. From strawberry picking at Beerenberg, and petting cute animals at the Hahndorf Farm Barn, to candle making, lolly shops, and a few rounds of Mini Golf - there’s something for all ages and interests.

Here are our top picks for the best kids activities that even grown-ups will enjoy.

1. Beerenberg Family Farm

We know we're a little biased, but there’s nothing better than fresh strawberries picked straight from the patch! We’ve been offering strawberry picking at our farm since 1975 and we’ve never missed a season. Fun and educational, it’s a great way to teach kids about local produce and where the foods they eat come from. You can pick as many as you please (tip: go for the big and juicy ones) and simply pay at the end.

Finish your trip off with a trip to the Beerenberg Cafe. Enjoy an ever-changing seasonal menu incorporating local produce, such as fluffy scones with our famous jams, as well as gourmet sandwiches, burgers and salads, all accompanied by our flavourful relishes, sauces and dressings. For those with a sweet tooth indulge yourself at our delightful ice creamery, The Dairy! With many flavours to choose from, our ice cream and gelati is made with freshly churned local milk and the highest quality fruit, chocolate, and other delicious ingredients.

NOTE: Strawberry Season is November - April

2. Hahndorf Farm Barn

Continue your farm adventures with a trip to the Hahndorf Farm Barn. The kids will squeal with excitement at the chance to milk a cow, ride a tractor or a pony, watch the reptile shows and pat all the baby animals. A unique children’s farmyard and wildlife park, you can hold, touch and feed most of the animals in complete safety and your own comfort level. It’s a great day out with the whole family and it’s very educational. Your kids can discover so much about the animals including how they are born and how they grow and live on the farm. Don’t forget to pack a picnic too, there’s a playground and sandpit to really make a day of it.
