Mylor Local Area & Amenities
Mylor is one of those small, quaint, quiet villages in the Adelaide Hills where people retreat to enjoy the coolness of the mountains and the unique Australian bushland beauty of the area. Here’s a few places to see and vist in the area.
In and Around Mylor
You are invited to stay onsite as part of your registration in one of the following accommodation options:
Dormitory style rooms that accommodate generally 6-12 people per room. Most have ensuites.
Camping (BYO tent and gear, or hire for a small fee with prior notice).
If you choose to stay offsite this is at your own cost and no reimbursement for accommodation will be issued as forum fees have been engineered to ensure AABAT has exclusive use of the whole venue.
What to bring
- If staying in the dormitory, a mattress is supplied but please bring a single fitted sheet – if you are camping, bring your own tent and mattress/bedding or advise if you require to hire camping gear upon registration
- Pillow and pillowcase
- Blankets/doona or warm sleeping bag (it can still be cold in the Adelaide Hills this time of year!)
- Warm clothing
- Enclosed footwear
- Personal toiletries
Both Adelaide Airport and Franklin Street bus Station are about 1 hours drive from the venue.
It is anticipated that an AABAT shuttle bus is to be offered departing from the Adelaide Airport at 3pm on Friday 21 October. Depending on demand, we may have another bus doing an airport pickup at 4pm and another at 6:30pm. Bus will return to the airport leaving Mylor after the forum on Sunday 23 October. The cost will be $15 each way, ideally paid upon registration (with limited spots with cash or credit card upon boarding). You can select your interest in using the shuttle bus upon registering for the forum. Queries can be directed to .
If you would like to share a ride, jump onto the AABAT Forum 2022 Carpooling Facebook Group. This platform is not coordinated by an AABAT member but simply a mechanism to post rideshare information.
There are limited spaces onsite to park your car, and also on the road coming to the property. Please note, cars cannot be driven onto the campground, and car parking may be a 2-3 minute walk from the campground in some instances.
Just over 30 minutes from the Adelaide CBD, the national forum at Mylor Adventure Camp offers many local attractions for registrants. There are many hiking trails, such as the new Steub Trail taking you from Cleland Conservation Park to the summit of Mt Lofty, the highest point of the southern Mt Lofty ranges, providing a 360 degree view of the Adelaide Hills and the city of Adelaide.
You can take a break from the forum and visit nearby towns of Stirling and Mylor, or take a short drive to visit the historic German settlement town of Handorf. For adventurous mountain bikers, the Adelaide Hills is home to well maintained cross-country and downhill biking tracks, as well as many shared use trails.
If you’re planning to stick around in South Australia, a trip to wine country might be worthwhile as internationally renowned Clare Valley, Barossa Valley, and McLaren Vale are all just about an hour’s road trip from Mylor. Locally sourced wines and produce are always just around the corner.
Due to COVID-19 and the recent increase in domestic travel, it is critical to plan your stay ahead of time, especially around certain aspects of your trip, like renting a car or booking hotel rooms. Still, as you can see with the list below, there is no shortage of adventures for you to experience in SA.
…and of course the beautiful city of Adelaide with its South Australian Art Gallery, Adelaide Oval, River Torrens, metropolitan beaches, the Fleurieu Peninsula (Victor Harbor, Second Valley…), historic Port Adelaide … the list goes on!
