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.

Hills Biodiversity Incorporated

Mobilising to prevent species loss

 

We often hear about species on the brink of extinction or the climate on the brink of collapse – and this sounds quite daunting and hopeless.  


However, community and landholders can work together to push back that brink!

 

Get Involved

 

Are you time-poor and still want to contribute to improving biodiversity in the Hills?

 

We get together for about 2 hours per month on the third Sunday of the month at 9am - no commitment, attend as many events as you want. We plant and/or weed, then enjoy a light lunch washed down with a drink of your choice.

 

It's a great way to meet and chat with like-minded people, and connect yourself with the local community. Find out more by contacting Warren on 0408 444 592.

Our Mission

Connecting landholders and volunteers to enhance the biodiversity of the Adelaide Hills.
