Wellness wander – Adelaide Hills
The Adelaide Hills will celebrate all aspects of wellness over a three-day event in April called Wellness wander when locals will throw open their doors, farm gates, studios and shops to offer you an immersive exploration of wellness in the region.
More than 60 unique events and experiences have been scheduled across the region giving wellness seekers plenty to choose from to help them escape, unwind, relax and refresh.
