Our Village is Open! How Hahndorf is Handling COVID-19

Friday, March 20, 2020

In this time of uncertainty right across the world, one thing we can be certain of is that Hahndorf is still a wonderful place to visit.

The traders of Hahndorf are calling on all Adelaideans to experience fresh air, shopping and stunning autumn leaves in Hahndorf.

If you are going to venture out for shopping, reconsider visiting the big retailers and indoor shopping centres (many of whom are struggling to keep up with supplies) and come out to support local, family-owned and small businesses.

Rest assured all the Hahndorf traders are taking extra health precautions seriously regarding COVID-19 and we ask that all visitors maintain the 1.5m social distancing advice.

Here’s a list of what you can shop for in Hahndorf and information from experience-based businesses on opening hours. By all means, this is not a complete list, but we will be adding to it regularly, so please keeping referring back to this article.
