Upper Hermitage is an outer northeastern rural suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. It is located in the City of Tea Tree Gully and Adelaide Hills Council local government areas, and is adjacent to the rural districts of Yatala Vale and Gould Creek.

History

Upper Hermitage's history revolves around agriculture and viticulture, as well as sand and freestone quarries, whose yields were used since early settlement days to build many South Australian public buildings, including the Adelaide Town Hall, General Post Office, Supreme Court and St Peter's Cathedral.

Geography

The boundary of Upper Hermitage is defined on the east by Warner Road, on the north by the Little Para River, on the south by a small stretch of Yatala Vale Road, and on the west by the district of Yatala Vale. It is broadly speaking east of the Golden Grove conurbation.

Facilities

Upper Hermitage has a Country Fire Station and the Glenara Winery on Range Road North, owned by the Verrall family since 1924, is in the district. It also has two tennis courts and a tennis club on the corner of Range Road North and Warner road, which is, to date, in disuse, the second court serving as a carpark for the CFS.
