Adelaide Airport is the gateway to the stunning offerings of regional South Australia, which lies at the doorstep of Adelaide itself. The airport is about nine kilometres from the CBD, and it is a hub for both international and domestic travellers leaving and entering South Australia. It’s also the first stopping point for many of the people visiting Hahndorf, about 30km away. Getting from Adelaide Airport to Hahndorf is easiest with a private transfer from Car Australia. We offer round the clock services, so no matter when your flight arrives we can be there. We also offer a predictable pricing model, unlike taxis, which use meters to calculate their prices. Our services come complete with a range of premium and luxury vehicles for you to choose from, and we can cater for both individuals and large groups. In fact, when you’re travelling with large groups it can be cheaper to employ our services rather than public transport, which attracts a charge for each person travelling.

Hahndorf – the heart of Barossa

Hahndorf is a historical town in the Adelaide Hills, and a testament to a wave of German migration during the nineteenth century. Today, that history remains in the region, which is dotted with traditional Lutheran churches, and German names that pay homage to the provenance of the region’s founders. The architecture that is embedded throughout Hahndorf is another stark reminder of its interesting and unique history. It now attracts many tourists, in part due to its well earned reputation as one of Australia’s wine epicentres, but it began as a humble farming community that relied on the fertility of the Adelaide Hills’ soil. To cover some ground throughout the Hahndorf region, you will need reliable transport and that’s what we offer. We can take you anywhere in and around Hahndorf, before taking you back to Adelaide Airport when you’re finished.
