Nairne began as a town on Princes Highway, which used to be the main traffic route from Sydney to Adelaide (via Melbourne) before the South Eastern Freeway superseded this section of highway in 1969.

In 2003, the main street was transformed for a section of the movie The Honourable Wally Norman, which was filmed using various areas of the Adelaide Hills, including Mount Barker, Nairne and Lobethal.
