Get out of the city and take a day trip up through the Adelaide Hills to Cudlee Creek and the Gorge Wildlife Park. It's only about a 50 minute drive from the Adelaide CBD and beautifully refreshing driving up through the windy roads, tall trees, reservoirs and small quaint towns.

Once you get to Cudlee Creek stop in at the Cudlee Creek Restaurant and Tavern, which is also the Caravan Park. If you plan the trip ahead of time consider booking a cabin for the night, but if you do book well in advance as they can often be booked out for quite some time ahead.

Another place you simply must stop at while you are there is the Cudlee Creek Cafe. They use the best selection of fresh locally sourced produce and most of this produce is organically grown and is also available to the public.

In the colder months feel the cosy warmth of the wood fire with homemade soup and locally made turkish bread. Homemade cakes, biscuits and local produce including wines and olive oil are also on sale along with the café being fully licensed stocking a variety of wines and beers including the Lobethal Bierhaus range of Pale Ale, Stout, English Dark Ale and German Wheat Beer.

When it's warmer you can sit back, breathe in the fresh air and look over the gorge. The kids can run around in the gorgeous garden and you'll find great summer salad sourced from the freshest local produce.
