Celebrating SA Tourism Award Nominees

Blog Posted: 1st November 2016 / Prepared by: Miranda Lang

Fleurieu Peninsula Tourism would like to congratulate the following businesses who are nominated for the upcoming South Australian Tourism Awards.

Here is a little bit on each of the 9 Tourism Awards Finalists from the Fleurieu Peninsula:

Chook’s Little Winery Tours

Chook’s Little Winery Tours is a small family company and your host will be Chook, a local McLaren Vale personality and wine lover. Chook's Little Winery Tours offer you a unique wine experience, to discover some of the little known boutique wineries in McLaren Vale. Sample wine straight from the barrels, stroll through the vineyards and chat with the owners and winemakers themselves.

Great way to see the region by a local legion!


Canoe the Coorong 

Canoe the Coorong showcases one of South Australia’s best-kept secrets.

Located just 85 km south of Adelaide is the internationally recognised Coorong Wetlands. Stretching more than 140 kilometres, the Coorong National Park protects a string of spectacular saltwater lagoons which are sheltered from the Southern Ocean by the sweeping, rolling sand dunes of the Young Husband Peninsula. The best way to explore these waterways is by kayak.


Hugh Hamilton Wines 

"Wine is constant proof that God loves us and likes to see us happy." so said Benjamin Franklin, and Hugh agrees.

Hugh is the fifth generation of the family that planted the first vineyards at Glenelg in 1837, less than one year after European settlement in South Australia. As with all families one is a black sheep and Hugh Hamilton is it. You can expect therefore to enjoy the difference.

Located in the stunning McLaren Vale Wine Region, only 45 minutes from Adelaide.


Leonards Mill Restaurant 

Leonards Mill is beautifully restored flour mill located near Second Valley on way to Kangaroo Island.  Here you will embark on a culinary journey in a pristine environment where you can experience the best of the Fleurieu Peninsula. This, coupled with quality South Australian wines and genuine hospitality will ensure your visit is one to remember

Leonards Mill source and support local producers and growers. Purchasing from local farmers, cheese makers, wineries, fisheries, potters and artists helps preserve local foods and upholds a commitment to EAT LOCAL.
