Wishing you a happy New Year, from CEO, Greg Georgopoulos
As the New Year begins, I am truly excited about the journey ahead and the opportunities for collaboration, growth, and success across the Adelaide Hills.

The Hills feel a buzz and it’s great to see so many locals and visitors enjoying all that our region has to offer in the summer months. This week we set the stage and welcome the Santos Tour Down Under, a world class event, to our home and have the chance to showcase why we’re a world class destination.

I look forward to working with our unique community as we make our next lap around the sun. Happy New Year!
