Hospitality & Tourism
The renovation and rebuild of a charming 1870s sandstone “Settlers Cottage” in the Barossa Valley meant that the Miner’s Cottage become the 6th Bed and Breakfast in the Barossa Valley. The Miners Cottage is a delightful historic restoration in the heart of the Barossa Valley, which is one of South Australia’s most highly regarded wine regions and was opened in 1986 South Australia’s 150th birthday.
The Miner’s Cottage continues to this day to prosper under different ownership minerscottage.com.au
Operating the Miners Cottage led Godfrey to think about other South Australian Tourism experiences. This thought led to the purchase of Koala Air Safaris which was targeted at the German speaking Market – Austria, Germany and Switzerland. Koala Air operated very successfully for 8 years before other more exciting opportunities presented themselves.
