The South Australian Tourism Awards night on Friday 9 November saw Mulberry Lodge Country Retreat named as Winner of SA Tourism Awards Hosted Accommodation for 2018. Following wins in 2016 and 2017, Mulberry Lodge was also inducted into the SA Tourism Hall of Fame, with owners and hosts Hazel and Nik Parker receiving the award from SA Tourism Industry Council CEO Shaun de Bruyn.

Hazel Parker said “being inducted into the Hall of Fame is incredible news for Mulberry Lodge and we are honoured to be named alongside the leading tourism businesses in South Australia. This is the culmination of five years developing the business to be one of SA’s best boutique country retreats. Nik and I are delighted to receive this award and we take great pride in being recognised, again, as the winner of SA hosted accommodation for 2018.”

Mulberry Lodge Country Retreat in Willunga is a boutique escape from the busyness of everyday life, offering a tranquil garden setting among the beautiful vineyards of the McLaren Vale. Renowned for their outstanding hospitality, Hazel and Nik welcome every guest as if to their own home and ensure they leave as friends. A beautiful private suite is within easy reach of Hazel’s famous breakfasts and enthusiastic recommendations of the very best places to wine, dine and experience in the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula, just 45 minutes from Adelaide CBD and international airport.

“Thank you to the team at SATIC for their fantastic support and encouragement, and to SATC for their vision for driving tourism in SA to be one of the leading industry sectors. We’d also love to thank all our guests over the last three years for their wonderful comments and our local tourism suppliers and friends which have undoubtedly been a very important part of Mulberry Lodge becoming part of the SA Tourism Hall of Fame”.
