Penfolds Magill Estate (78 Penfold Road) is a must-visit for wine buffs. For a dining experience that hits all the high notes, chef Scott Huggins and the Magill Estate Restaurant team earned a place in Gourmet Traveller’s top 10 South Australian restaurants and for a more relaxed snack, Magill Estate Kitchen offers great vineyard views.
Work it off with a game of tennis. The City of Burnside has a whopping 69 tennis courts to choose from, many of which are open to the public.
Or, for a more relaxed art attack of the inspirational kind, head to Pepper Street Arts Centre (558 Magill Road), the Ruth Tuck Art School and gorgeous Urth Clay Studio (both found at Burnside Art and Craft Centre, Hubbe Court, Burnside) for handcrafted goodies.
Newcomer to the neighbourhood is Lucky Bert’s, a boutique store full of antique treasures and quirky décor, plants and books. The store (at 552 Greenhill Rd) is run by young couple Georga and Ben Brew, who live in the Adelaide Hills but chose this location as the place in which to showcase their beautifully curated stock. The store’s mix of history and fresh-faced modernity is a fitting reflection of Burnside as it is today.
