The South Australian Tourism awards were announced at the Adelaide Convention Centre on Friday evening, with guests embracing the theme ‘Outback under the stars’ and celebrating the state’s leading businesses making significant contributions to tourism.

The South Australian Tourism Awards are presented by the South Australian Tourism Industry Council and proudly supported by the South Australian Tourism Commission. Now in its 34th year the Awards celebrate and acknowledge tourism businesses that have demonstrated outstanding achievements and success throughout the year.
Congratulations to Ultimate Wineries, d'Arenberg and Seppeltsfield, collecting awards in their respective categories: 

Still basking in the afterglow of award success earlier in the week, d'Arenberg in McLaren Vale was recognised with the awards for Best Tourist Attraction AND the Premier's Award for Service Excellence.  

Built at the centre of the d’Arenberg property, the d’Arenberg Cube offers a full and versatile experience for customers, which is complemented by a dedication to service excellence.

Communicating with customers, ensuring they feel welcomed and providing advanced information is a vital part of the d’Arenberg philosophy.


Seppeltsfield in the Barossa Valley took out the category for Best Wineries, Distilleries or Breweries.
