South Australia’s most visited attraction, the Adelaide Botanic Garden is home to the internationally acclaimed Bicentennial Conservatory. The largest single span conservatory in the southern hemisphere and one of the largest in the world, it features plants from the tropical rainforests of northern Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and the nearby Pacific Islands. Many of these plants are at risk in their natural habitats. Built to celebrate Australia’s Bicentenary in 1988, the Conservatory enables visitors to experience a unique and visually stunning rainforest environment right here in the heart of Adelaide.
Located in the popular tourist village of Hahndorf in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, the Hahndorf Farm Barn is a unique tourism attraction that allows people of all ages to interact with a variety of tame farm animals, from lambs and goats to alpacas and cows.
Our accomodation Norwood guests can join the Farm Barn just over four years ago and, each day, they offer tourists the opportunity to meet their stable of furry friends – Sam the Suffolk ram, Daisy the cow, Billy the alpaca and many others.
From our Self-Contained Adelaide cottages to the barn, visitors are treated to a one-hour interactive show where, from the comfort of hay bales, they are introduced to the Farmer’s friendly farm animals one by one.
Visitors learn all types of interesting facts and they also have the opportunity to count Sam’s teeth and try milking Daisy. And if the season is right, visitors can watch a sheep be shorn.
Our accomodation Norwood guests are free to roam around the barn and are also welcome to jump in the pens to touch and feed the many animals.
Visit our Australian made items, reflecting an image of both high quality and individuality, including pottery, timber, metal and silver, opal and iron ore jewellery. The range of Aboriginal art and craft is very popular with tourists as is the extensive selection of T-shirts catering for both adults and children alike. Distinctive Australian animals are also a specialty. Once you’re here; you feel at home in our Self-Contained Adelaide cottages.
