Activities - Bishops Adelaide Hills
Minutes from everywhere. Hours from anywhere.
Bishops Adelaide Hills offers the best of both worlds - a beautiful
and private haven away from the hustle and bustle of city life, coupled
with easy access to the best restaurants, pubs and vineyards which South
Australia has to offer.
For those guests who simply wish to relax and unwind, there is no
need to even leave the property. Guests have access to the entire estate
as their private domain, and can choose to sit in front of roaring log
fires reading a book or to walk the kilometres of paths and tracks through
forests and pasture beside spring-fed creeks and duck dotted ponds,
past neat cherry orchards and groves of exotic trees. The property also
contains a myriad of bird life - from wrens and finches to parrots,
owls and eagles - as well as kangaroos, possums, echidnas and koalas.

Explore the historic Bullock Track
The most famous of the trails in the district is the historic
Bullock Track, which runs through the Bishop property down
the ridge from Forest Range to the junction of Deep Creek
and Sixth Creek in the heart of Basket Range.
Originally cleared in the 1840s by woodcutters, it was
made for bullock drays to cart timber to Adelaide for roofing
shingles and fenceposts. Soon the early German settlers
from Lobethal, the “Valley of Praise”, were
using this track to carry their produce through the Hills
and over the plains, along Third Creek to the markets at
Klemzig on the banks of the River Torrens.
The Bullock Track followed the ridges and was the only
trail from Lobethal to the Adelaide Plains until the winding
horse track, which remains the main road today, was built
through Norton Summit.
