A pack of hounds was introduced to Adelaide in the 1840s, just a few years after the British colony was founded. The Adelaide Hounds (later Adelaide Hunt Club) is very closely linked with the city’s history. Early club records reflect that followers of The Adelaide Hounds (later Adelaide Hunt Club) were the movers and shakers of their time, with events such as the annual ball and steeplechase social highlights of the new colony.

The Adelaide Hunt Club’s kennels have had various homes on the Adelaide Plains until the takeover of urban sprawl in the mid-1900s. Nowadays they are located in Woodside, in the Adelaide Hills and run by huntsman, Andrew Gray, who has also been Master of Hounds since 1995.

There are currently 30 riding members, an extensive social network, and a pack of 25 couple foxhounds of local and international bloodlines.
