Editor’s note – Autumn 2023

After the overwhelming response to our first two editions, our team is excited to return in 2023 and continue bringing you the stories of the people and places that make our region what it is.

Welcome to the first autumn edition of the Hills Wanderer!

After the overwhelming response to our first two editions, our team is excited to return in 2023 and continue bringing you the stories of the people and places that make our region what it is.

In this edition of the Hills Wanderer we introduce you to a Mt Barker man who grew up shearing sheep, but now travels all over the world pursuing his passion for dance.

We also take you into the world of local author Pip Williams whose award-winning debut novel The Dictionary of Lost Words became the first Australian book to be selected for Reese’s Book Club – founded by actress Reese Witherspoon to champion books that feature women.

We caught up with her just ahead of the release of her novel The Bookbinder of Jericho to find out what inspired her new book.

We’ll also take a look at the fascinating life of the Adelaide Hills very own ‘Grandfather of Grüner’, take you on a journey to the quirkiest, most luxurious and most interesting places to stay in your backyard and take you into the kitchen to learn about how the simplest ingredients can make the most delicious meals.

So join us yet again as we wander through the Adelaide Hills and uncover just some of its secrets.
