Cudlee Creek is a small town near Adelaide, South Australia. It is located in the Adelaide Hills Council local government area.HistoryThe name Cudlee Creek is probably derived from Aboriginal Kaurna or possibly Peramangk language meaning the Dingo's Creek.The first European inhabitants of Cudlee Creek settled in 1838, when William Kelly, from the Isle of Man, came to the area and established the Sulby Glen estate. A district history states that Sulby Glen was "...well-known for cheese-making. Quite a lot of wheat was grown; fruit trees were planted and a lot of potatoes marketed." It became a significant exporter of apples and pears, and a cold store built in 1922 for a fruitgrowers' cooperative is the most prominent building in the town.GeographyCudlee Creek is located south of Chain of Ponds on the road out of Adelaide via Athelstone (Gorge Road). The ABS 2006 census records 764 people living in 304 dwellings.FacilitiesCudlee Creek has a Soldiers Memorial Hall, Caravan Park, Pub, Tennis Courts, Golf Course and a Country Fire Station.Points of interest: Gorge Wildlife Park, one of the largest privately owned animal parks in Australia (opened 1965) An old icecreamery now converted to a restaurant (opened 1890) known as the Cudlee Cafe The popular walking trail, the Heysen Trail passes through the town The local Primary School, Millbrook Primary School, closed in 2010 after 131 years.
