Woodhouse Activity Centre in the Adelaide Hills has long been a favourite location for outdoor adventure lovers of all ages. Between Scout camps, school camps, conferences, school holiday programs and weddings in its beautiful heritage listed stone manor, Woodhouse now also hosts hundreds of families every week seeking both challenge and reward, adventure, fun and everlasting memories – not to mention some pretty fantastic photo ops!
It’s these memories and experiences together with a host of exiting new developments that earned Woodhouse the sought-after RAA Voters’ Choice Tourism Award (Accommodation) and the Silver award in the Adventure Tourism category at the 2019 South Australian Tourism Awards last week.
The past 12 months have seen a host of new installations, upgrades and renovations right across the magnificent 54 hectare property resulting in an award winning destination that whilst continuing to provide school, corporate and Scout groups with one of the most sought after locations in South Australia, has proven to be an increasingly popular option for families looking for something new and different for birthday parties, day trips or even a weekend escape with a choice of accommodation options in brick, wood or canvas on offer.
Developments at Woodhouse in the past year have included;
On site BBQ’s in the large undercover activity sheds are perfect for birthday parties, lunch or to relax around with a drink at the end of a big day to celebrate conquering challenge hill, testing your skills at the 9 hole disc golf course (like regular golf but with a frisbee), experiencing the thrill of flying down the tube slide, weaving your way through the labyrinth, trying your hand at any of the 7 orienteering course or just heading out for a hike and perhaps saying hi to our koalas and kangaroos along the way.
If you’ve not been to Woodhouse in a while – or have never been, there’s no better time to head 15 minutes up the freeway, get outdoors, live a little and find out exactly why they’ve just won these prestigious awards.
