Hahndorf Academy

Situated in the centre of the picturesque village of Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills, the Hahndorf Academy is a magical place where visual arts and heritage meet.

The Academy Shop showcases quality hand crafted products by local and regional artists and designers. We are proud to stock works from over 100 local artists in our beautiful shop including glass, jewellery, prints, cards, skin care, books, clothing and original artwork. 

There is an ever-changing panorama of contemporary visual art to discover in our Gallery

You can also absorb the local history in our German Migration Museum and be captivated by objects and stories relating to the lives of Hahndorf’s pioneering families.   Starting out as a boarding school, and later a maternity hospital, if the walls of the 19th Century Heritage building could talk they would tell remarkable stories of history and courage and fear and excitement as early settlers created new lives for themselves.

Meals on Wheels Stirling

 

Working throughout South Australia, Meals on Wheels is a not-for-profit, community-based volunteer organisation that improves the diet and wellbeing of less able people by cooking and delivering thousands of meals each week. And we have been doing that for seventy years!

We provide freshly cooked, hot, delicious, nutritious, three-course meals every weekday, plus frozen meals for weekends, public holidays or times when clients are away from home.

Our clients include those who easily cannot cook or shop for themselves, including older people, people with a disability, carers and those recovering from illness or injury.

Volunteer With Us And Make A Difference!

Research shows that home-delivered meal programs significantly reduce food insecurity whilst improving diet quality, social connectivity, and people’s quality-of-life.

And as a volunteer you will benefit by feeling part of your local supportive, cohesive and caring community.

Locally Based

Our Stirling Branch helps people in the Aldgate, Bridgewater, Crafers, Crafers West, Heathfield, Mylor, Piccadilly, Stirling, Summertown and Uraidla areas.
