ALDGATE

Get to know
the area

With the picturesque Adelaide Hills as its backdrop, Aldgate has an alluring charm that makes you want to retreat to the great outdoors. Built along the banks of Aldgate Creek, this quaint village is known for its tranquil setting, country-town atmosphere and enticing real estate.

Lifestyle

Aldgate is less commercial and more intimate than the neighbouring suburbs of Crafers and Hahndorf. Offering the quintessential Adelaide Hills lifestyle, the suburb is home to a close-knit community where locals know each other by name. At the same time, there is a respectful privacy that allows residents to retreat, cosy up in front of an open fire and hide away from the world if they choose. 

Retaining the essence of a bygone era, Aldgate Village is the centre of the neighbourhood and hosts a good selection of eateries, interesting speciality shops and everyday services. It is also home to the iconic Aldgate Pump Hotel which attracts visitors from near and far. While the hotel offers traditional pub grub and is an enticing spot to escape to on a cold wintery day, the real attraction is the original ‘pump’ which was used to water the horses and bullock teams which passed through the area in the 1860s. 

Beyond the main street, the area takes on an even more rustic setting, opening up to winding roads with big blocks, beautiful country houses, meandering creeks and an abundance of wildlife. Local club sport is a popular pastime for families on weekends while there are picnic spots, nature walks and cycling trails to choose from for those wishing to explore the great outdoors.
