About Council

The Adelaide Hills Council area is a magnificent place to live, work and visit. The environmental, aesthetic, residential, primary production and natural qualities of the district are renowned for their excellence, and contribute to the Adelaide Hills earning the signature of being "a special place" and one of Australia's most loved areas.

From the leafy suburbs of Rostrevor to the lush vineyards of Lenswood, from the stark beauty of Humbug Scrub in the north to the majestic Mt Bold, the Adelaide Hills Council area has the assets and attractions that will stimulate your many and varied desires - and it is less than 30 minutes by car from the Adelaide CBD.

From an economic development perspective, the District has an expanding economy with high growth potential in food, wine, tourism, retail and light industry. The Adelaide Hills Council is a medium-sized local authority with a population of  40,000 and a $45 million budget.​

The Hills is a place for every season, and we invite you to take the time to immerse yourself in all that the Hills has to offer throughout the year.
