Adelaide Hills Self-Guided Tour

Adelaide Hills Self-Guided Tour

We’ve done the work for you and plotted a self-guided tour of SALA exhibitions through the gorgeous Adelaide Hills.

We pay respect to the Traditional Owners of this land and acknowledge the significance of the land and waters to the Peramangk, Ngarrindjeri, and Kaurna People.

This route was applicable to the 2023 SALA Festival which has now concluded.
