I attended a wedding at Magpie Springs and it was the perfect venue for a fabulous day. The gardens are peaceful and the vines as a back drop we're magical. I would recommend checking it out for functions with a difference. The gallery is full of great art and the shows change often. The wines and coffee available made for a very enjoyable day. Definitely make sure you drop in and experience Magpie Springs.

Had a wonderful afternoon with friends picnicking in the sun, sipping Pinot and later burning off some energy on their fabulous bouldering wall. The owners Avril and Steve are incredibly welcoming as is Benny - the canine greeting party of one. Been back several times since.

It's always worth a walk around Magpie Springs, just out of Willunga, south of Adelaide, but in the early months of the year visitors can enter their annual photography competition. By collecting a form upon arrival and reading the rules of the competition, you can proceed to investigate subjects for the competition and exhibition. There's plenty to see on the property, from old machinery and buildings, some handmade, to pockets of bush, orchards, vineyards, a couple of dams that attract bird-life and frogs, and a Provencale-style garden that is often festive with wrens and honey-eaters.
Realist and portrait artist Avril Thomas has her studio on the property, and a small exhibition space where exhibitions change every couple of months - artworks ranging from the photography competition to still life, landscape and interior oil and watercolour paintings, and imaginative sci-fi and fantasy art have been shown so far.
Magpie Springs produces a range of red and white wines, but the pinot noir and sticky dessert wines are particularly noteworthy. In addition, coffee is packaged and sold at the cellar door. There's plenty of space for a group or family to sit outside on the lawns on a fine day, which are wonderful for a picnic if you feel so inclined.If you are more physically active, you can use the climbing wall. It's a great location for outdoor functions, even formal occasions, and is regularly on the route for the Tour Down Under. Check the website to see what's on when and the costs for usage, and take a drive down - it's a unique experience full of potential surprises.

Love this place. We've approached it from Meadows and the kuitpo forest. Such a beautiful way to see the Adelaide Hills.
Once at magpie springs buy a bottle of wine and sit on the lawns. If you are really organized, pack a picnic lunch and enjoy one of the many shady spots around the house.
The art exhibitions are always fresh and new, showcasing local artists.
Will visit again.
