Hahndorf is a small town in the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia. Currently an important tourism spot, it has previously been a centre for farming and services. It is accessible from Adelaide, the South Australian capital, via the southeastern freeway. The town was settled by Lutheran migrants largely from in and around a small village then named kay in Prussia and now known as Kije, Lubusz voivodeship in Poland. Many of the settlers arrived aboard the zebra on 28 December 1838. The town is named after dirk Meinert's Hahn, the danish captain of the zebra. It is Australia's oldest surviving German settlement.
