You’d be hard pressed to find someone who hasn’t had major interruptions to life from the pandemic — but now, it’s time to reconnect!

There’s been too many cancelled weddings, milestone birthdays, celebrations. The novelty of a zoom meeting has passed and we’re remembering the power of forming genuine connections in person, so when you’re looking for something different for your next event, say hello to Discovery Conferences and Events.

You’ll recognise their name from their incredible caravan and camping parks around Australia — what you may not know is that Discovery has unique venues across Australia and they’re perfect for getting your party pants on! For all those unforgettable days like weddings and big events, or those all-important conferences, work events, galas, trade shows, exhibitions and more, these superstars will give you bang-on locations and make logistics a breeze.

Aside from an A-grade team who will bend over backwards to ensure your big day is everything you’ve dreamed of and more, Discovery Conferences and Events gives you unique, premium venues across Australia. We checked out two of their incredible South Australian locations to see just what sets them apart…

Adelaide Hills Convention Centre 

Set just back from the Main Street as you drive into Hahndorf, even locals (like me) are surprised to find this hidden gem! You’ll find this award-winner just 20 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD. It’s incredible for hosting big events, with capacity for up to 400 guests (wowsers!) and it also has smaller sections for more intimate gatherings or break-outs.

The property is perched looking down onto the stunning Mount Lofty Ranges, overlooking 32 acres of picture-perfect grounds. And you’re just an 800-metre stroll into the main street of Hahndorf or a quick trip up the freeway — but you’ll feel a million miles away, which is perfect for getting some headspace from those busy office vibes or to create a feeling of a destination wedding without having to travel far. They’ve also got resort accommodation, plus caravan and camping facilities… this place is MAGIC!

Food is a breeze with their 5-star Executive Chef, and for events that run over multiple days, you can even stay on-site in their stunning accommodation, which is also perfect for gathering your nearest and dearest for a wedding or a big bash when you really want to embrace the whole weekend.

The Discovery Conferences and Events crew will happily run the show for you, ensuring that every little detail is taken care of, and they have all the state-of-the-art technology on hand to make sure you can set the scene perfectly.

With everything you need on-site, there’s no need to leave the property, but you’re just a stone’s throw away from rustic cellar doors, world-class wines and spirits, handmade cheeses, truffles, strawberry picking and more; walking trails, renowned waterfall hikes and quaint eateries. It’s a destination that’s perfect for every season, whether you’re snuggled up by a crackling indoor fireplace in winter, absorbing the kaleidoscope of nature’s colours in Autumn, watching things pop to life in spring, or enjoying long, lazy days in summer.

Victor Harbor Convention Centre

After extensive renos, the Victor Harbor Convention Centre located within the McCracken Country Club is a stunning coastal alternative to the Adelaide Hills, with all the same top-notch customer service and pride in running world-class events.

Just 50 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD, this convention centre will easily cater for a large four-day event, break-out sessions, gala dinners, presentations and team building activities. Or, if you just need a small boardroom meeting think-tank for half a day, it’s just as suitable. There’s capacity for 500 guests on the 56 hectares of immaculate grounds (including 18-hole golf course if you feel like a swing!), restaurants and bars.

Whatever your needs, the team is there to make sure it’s a success! And being set right in the heart of beautiful Victor Harbor means you’re minutes away from stunning beaches, walking trails, penguins, markets, galleries, restaurants and all the McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek wineries at your fingertips.

Wedding bells or business vibes, Discovery Conferences and Events should be top of your list to make sure it’s a roaring success!
