They can learn all about the old-fashioned way of making chocolate and lollies, watch the chocolate-makers at work and stock up on sweets for the journey home. Motoring memorabilia See if you can spot the first car you owned at the National Motor Museum at Birdwood, home to a huge collection of motor vehicles dating back to the early 1900s, with its Holden Pavilion hosting major exhibitions. Food trails Touring and tasting the delights of the Adelaide Hills is not just for adults, the whole family can now enjoy all the flavours of the region on the Yummy Adelaide Hills Food Trail for Kids. Designed specifically for six to 10 year olds (and their parents), the Yummy Adelaide Hills Food Trail for Kids is a complimentary tasting journey. Travel to Hills icon Beerenberg for jam or strawberry tastings (you can pick your own strawberries in season), then to Cocolat for gelato, Baylies for biscuits, Melba’s for chocolate and sweets, Millie’s Bakery Cafe for cakes, Johnston’s for cordials and Woodside Cheese Wrights for artisan cheeses. Follow the trail from beginning to end or tailor your own food experience by mixing in a few of the food outlets on the Taste the Adelaide Hills Trail and stop for lunch at one of the restaurants, cafés and cellar doors on the Experience Adelaide Hills Food Trail. Picnic spots A picnic is the perfect family outing and the Adelaide Hills has plenty of spots that fit the bill. The Mount Lofty Botanic Garden has several good locations, including some by the lake and, because it’s a whopping 97 hectares, there’s plenty of room for everyone. Kuitpo and Mount Crawford forests are also good options and have the added bonus of walking and cycling trails. At Mount Barker, Keith Stephenson Park has children’s play equipment and a skate park or try a linear walk through Laratinga Wetlands. There are also pleasant picnic spots and reserves in most Adelaide Hills towns.
