Paracombe is the local township where we’re located in the lofty heights of the Adelaide Hills. It was settled back in 1840 by John Barton Hack and John Richardson as a sheep station at the beginning of the 20th century. The name originates from the Little Para River whose headwaters originate in the area and ‘combe’ refers to a steep, narrow valley.
The Torrens Gorge is adjacent to Paracombe with magnificent rising slopes either side of the Torrens River as it converges onto the Adelaide plains below. Paracombe is a patchwork of beauty, with vineyards and surrounding orchards all adding to the panoramic tapestry of the area.
