Le Cordon Bleu Adelaide Masters students field trip

Master of International Hospitality Management Field Trip

As part of their Orientation program, new Le Cordon Bleu Adelaide Master of International Hospitality Management students were treated to a full day exploring the beautiful Adelaide Hills.

First stop was Cleland Wildlife Park, where students were able to take a walk on the wild side!  Home to over 130 species of Australian wildlife, students were able to feed kangaroos as they lazed, wander the wetlands, see wombats, dingoes, emus, and have a photo with a Koala.

Departing Cleland at lunchtime, our next stop was Hahndorf, a small town in the Adelaide Hills, famous for being Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement.  Here students were treated to lunch at The Haus, before being given some free time to roam Hahndorf’s charming main street.  From chutney, chocolate, fudge and apple strudel, to craft beers and boutique wines, all the flavours of the world come together in Hanhdorf!
