On Wednesday, 11th January, Le Cordon Bleu Adelaide treated our new Culinary and Bachelor students to a day out in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. The sun was shining and it was a glorious 24 degrees, making it a very comfortable day for students and staff to interact, while exploring this stunning region of Adelaide.
Students were collected from Regency TAFE and taken to Cleland Wildlife Park where it is possible to see over 120 native Australian animal species, including kangaroos, emus, koalas, and more. For many of our international students, this was their first encounter with Australian fauna; feeding kangaroos and having a photo with a koala proving to be a wonderful experience!
Next stop was lunch in Hahndorf, followed by some free time to stroll around one of South Australia’s most popular towns and enjoy its charm. While many visitors come to Hahndorf to get a glimpse of the past as Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement, Hahndorf is increasingly acknowledged for the modern and generally trendy place to wine and dine, or to just hang out with friends.
Our third and final stop was to Mount Lofty summit, which rises 710 meters above sea leave and provides breathtaking panoramic views across Adelaide’s city skyline to the coast.
It was a fun day out for staff and students alike, and a fabulous introduction to what the Adelaide Hills has to offer.
