Quotes attributable to Acting Tourism Minister Ian Hunter

This year’s Handpicked Festival is expected to be a huge success - with more than 3,500 people travelling to the Fleurieu Peninsula for the event.

We are thrilled South Australia is playing host to such iconic Australian artists like The Veronicas, British India, The Potbelleez and Killing Heidi - who have not toured for 10 years.

The State Government is working tirelessly to attract more people to visit South Australia. It’s events like Handpicked that have seen us dubbed the ‘Best Events State’ and contributed to our recent title in Lonely Planet’s ‘Top 5 places to visit in 2017’.

There is plenty of fun to be had on the Fleurieu Peninsula. From pristine beaches, to wine country - the region delivers experiences under an hour out of Adelaide that you won’t want to miss.
