Every weekend scores of eager Adelaide locals head to the base of Mt Lofty to attempt the heart-pumping 2km hike to the summit. But an easier way to get an enviable Instagram selfie is to check yourself into historic Mt Lofty House, just 20 minutes from the city, where the breathtaking views from your luxuriously appointed suite will have your followers green with envy without you even breaking a sweat. Set amongst 22 acres of immaculately manicured gardens, this 1852 heritage-listed manor house offers a range of modern rooms and suites with king beds and fantastic views across the Piccadilly Valley, an outdoor swimming pool, billiards room, tennis court and day spa set in the home's original 19th century stables. For a more intimate stay, four free standing self-contained cottages offer total privacy for a perfect Hills retreat.
Time Out tip: Don't miss a chance to dine at Hardy's Verandah, opened in 2017 it’s one of Adelaide's best restaurants with one of the best views.
