This local haunt is an ideal conference retreat or team-building destination, being both accessible from the Adelaide CBD (just 15 minute drive), while still being removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. The historic Mount Lofty House is situated amongst 22 acres of immaculately manicured gardens, and has fantastic views across the Piccadilly Valley.
Across the venue you’ll find relaxed boardrooms, a fully enclosed air-conditioned marquee and state-of-the-art conference facilities. Each of the venues can host anything from intimate team-building retreats right through to large, multi-day meetings.
The 1852 heritage-listed manor house also offers unique event experiences. Explore Adelaide’s best wines on a cellar tour or sample them in at a wine tasting; get acquainted with local artisan foods in an indulgent cheese or chocolate masterclass; unwind as a team at an outdoor yoga class; or you can totally rejuvenate with a facial or a massage at the venue’s luxe day spa.
They can also cater event packages for lunches or dinners at Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant and Bar, which recently go a 2 million dollar refurbishment. The restaurant boasts a menu designed by Jin Choi, and navigates refined classics, which are complemented by local wines.
You’ll also find the Arthur Waterhouse Lounge and Cocktail Bar, which offers a more casual experience, with bar snacks and top notch cocktails. Both venues served as a destination for high society parties in Adelaide and still maintain an elegant and historic facade, making them perfect for more intimate events.
