Langhorne Creek (formerly Langhorne's Creek) is a town in South Australia. It is less than an hour's drive from Adelaide. At the 2011 census, Langhorne Creek had a population of 668.

Features

One of the primary features, excluding vinyards and wineries, is the football club. The Langhorne Creek Hawks play in the GSFL (Great Southern Football League), and have some of, if not the best, facilities in the league. The club last won premierships in 2011/2012 back to back.

The township has numerous places to eat: the Langhorne Creek General Store and The Bridge Hotel can be found on the main street of the town while the Angas Plains Estate, Bremerton and Lake Breeze cellar doors all offer lunch menus that go perfectly with a glass of wine. Additionally, The Winehouse is available to hire for functions and features a full kitchen. Langhorne Creek has seven cellar doors, all open seven days a week: Angas Plains Estate, Bremerton, Bleasdale, Cleggett Wines, Lake Breeze, Rusticana, The Winehouse and Vineyard Road Cellar Door.

Frank Potts Reserve (named for the founder of the nearby Bleasdale winery) and Alfred Langhorne Park (for one of the cattle-droving brothers Alfred and Charles) are popular places to picnic and excellent areas to observe native flora and fauna.
