table experiences in Australia s most

"The Louise, a luxury vineyard

a working sheep station in the Flinders
and our own Southern Ocean Lodge on
Kangaroo Island shows just how much
we have grown that part of the tourism
experience in South Australia."
The joint venture was launched this
week during the week-long Australian
Tourism Exchange at Adelaide
Hayley said the luxury end of the
market is attractive to UK and USA
tourists and a growing number of
French and Italian visitors.
As a result, Hayley spends a lot of
her time overseas, pitching to tourism
wholesalers and retailers.
"That s why this Exchange in
Adelaide has been so good," she said.
"It s brought so many buyers and
sellers to this part of the world and we
have been able to showcase Kangaroo
Island which is consistently at the top
of overseas visitor s to-do-lists.
"The Island is like a zoo without
borders -- so many wildlife experiences
-- and for those who like those experi-
ence and being able to stay in the best
places, our luxury lodge fits the bill."
Kangaroo Island featured strongly
at the exhibition space which also
included 1700 delegates and exhibitors
from all over Australia pitching to 600
international retailers and
