Established in 1848 and the defining landmark in the Adelaide Hills town of Echunga, The Hagen Arms is one of South Australia’s oldest Hotels, operating uninterrupted for 178 years. Our Family purchased the Hotel in 2018 and immediately began restoring the Heritage Listed Buildings, making the furniture and fit out from locally sourced, recycled timbers and stone. Not everything has gone to plan but it’s definitely happening with the right intention and as part of Kikoi I’m sure there’s another exciting chapter ahead for both the Hotel and the Community.
