With each house nestled in its own secluded area of the larger working farm, colourful gardens merge seamlessly with the orchards, native forest and pasture. Walk the kilometres of paths and tracks, up hill and down dale, through fields and forests, beside spring-fed creeks and duck dotted ponds, past neat cherry orchards and groves of exotic trees. Observe the myriad of bird life - from wrens and finches, to parrots, magpies, kookaburras, owls and eagles. Spot the kangaroos, possums, echidnas and koalas. Apart from the native fauna, your only neighbours are the friendly cattle.

Enjoy the whole property as your private estate. Explore the fascinating Adelaide Hills and all of its attractions, only 30 minutes away.


There are four routes to Basket Range from Adelaide and each one is worth the scenic drive alone - whether travelling via the Greenhill Road through Uraidla, the Old Norton Summit Road along Third Creek, the New Norton Summit Road past the spectacular Morialta Falls or via the SE Freeway to Crafers and through the Piccadilly Valley to Basket Range, all are a great way to see Adelaide Hills’ scenery.
