CloudsNest is a luxury Adelaide Hills property in a peaceful valley of native flora, only 40 minutes from Adelaide CBD but beautifully secluded. Scott Creek Conservation Park on the property’s boundary provides scenic bushland walks towards Mt Lofty and Stirling, with wineries and picturesque traditional villages close by.
Century old stone ruins hint at the history of European pioneers establishing some of the state’s earliest orchards and pastures, with 19th century enterprises in silver and gold mining (long abandoned) in neighbouring valleys.
