Just 18 kilometres south-east of Adelaide, Stirling is a stylish garden village with a flourishing food scene and fabulous shopping for fashion, plants, collectibles, jewellery, homewares, art and books at the unique shops and bustling monthly market.

Settled in 1854, Stirling has some of the state’s most beautiful homes. Initially the site of orchards and market gardens, the late 19th century saw the town become popular with Adelaide’s wealthy residents who built summer houses.

The leafy main street is lined with cafés, restaurants and shops.

Visit Red Cacao for handmade chocolate delights and Friday night dessert bar. Culinary adventure also awaits at Sticky Rice Cooking School which has three luxury villas.

The Stirling Market is held on the fourth Sunday of every month (third in December) with approximately 80 stalls. Stirling Laneways is held alongside the market (September to April only) featuring entertainment, food and pop-up stalls.

Nearby Woorabinda Lake is part of Woorabinda Bushland Reserve, a 34-hectare park with excellent walking trails. Steamroller Park is popular with families.

The Stirling Hotel is a hip and historic pub with dining, accommodation, function spaces and patisserie.

Other accommodation in Stirling includes the Stirling Golf & Country Club, luxury B&Bs and apartments.
