Meet The Tourism Development Coordinator at Jacob’s Creek and St Hugo: Samantha Sutch
What is your favourite thing to do in South Australia?
I personally love food and wine… if you can add some live music and friends into the mix, you have magic! Luckily, I’m in the right state to explore wine regions, drink a glass or two and enjoy a leisurely lunch. Some favourites would be Artisans of the Barossa, Yelland & Paps, Goldings, Pike & Joyce or Petaluma.
What is a fun fact not many people know about you?
That I have been to the world’s highest Irish bar… it was on my way back down from Everest Base Camp in the town of Namche Bazaar at 3,440m above sea level – a very well-deserved pit stop may I just add!
What do you love about ATDW?
That ATDW is a one-stop-shop for us in the sense that we can list our sites, restaurants and experiences and this is promoted nationally. The system is easy to use and I’ve listed our properties under three categories ‘Food & Drink’, ‘Attraction’ and ‘Tour’ which helps us to get the most exposure out of the system. There is also a great support system behind ATDW with our local Tourism Body, SATC who are always there to offer guidance and advice.
