Each year, TripAdvisor collates the reviews, ratings and saves that travellers share from all around the world, and uses the data to recognise the best of the best.
The Travellers Choice Awards are just that; the travellers choice of destination, whether that be hotels, restaurants, wineries or experiences.
The awards place the businesses in the top 10% in the world, and are are fortunate enough to have a number of them right here in SA.
Set in a lime grove amongst idyllic McLaren Vale vineyards, The Currant Shed creates stunning gourmet dishes from local and regional produce. The culinary team create seasonally changing menus that are eclectic and edgy.
Pike & Joyce is also a winning destination, with the 25 hectare winery offering stunning panoramic 180 degree views of the Adelaide Hills.
Same with Dudley Wines, the family-owned cellar door that is perched on a cliff-top on Kangaroo Island, just out of Penneshaw. Wine with a view.
Whilst you’re on Kangaroo Island, make sure you check out Kangaroo Island Fresh Seafoods. They’ve also been given the tick, with their fresh fish caught by local fishermen a hit with the public. You can dine-in, take-away, or buy the fish fresh and cook it at home.
Closer to home, the mediterranean-inspired restaurant George’s on Waymouth offer some award-winning dishes that are truly second-to-none. They continue to work with and support local farmers and businesses, providing diners with fresh, quality produce.
There are also a couple of South Australian hotels that earned the award.
Overlooking the beautiful Glenelg foreshore is Seawall Apartments, who boast unique, character-filled apartments with a gorgeous view of the water. It’s the perfect seaside escape.
Coast Motel & Apartments on the beachfront of Port Noarlunga have 15 stunning beachfront studio apartments. They’ve also been crowned the best hotel for service in the whole of Australia.
