Finding your way around Kangaroo Island has just become faster and easier with the launch of the Kangaroo Island Food & Wine Association’s new Digital Trail. Kangaroo Island Food and Wine Chairman Tony Nolan is very pleased with the result.
“This interactive map will increase with popularity and function as our members and online visitors use this fantastic tool to promote their products and services, giving an up to the minute live map of Kangaroo Island’s Food and Wine offerings,” Tony said.
Kangaroo Island Food & Wine Association obtained funding via Primary Industries & Regions SA (PIRSA) SA Wine Industry Development Scheme, and the Office of the Commissioner for Kangaroo Island, along with support from Tourism KI and various cellar doors, to produce this valuable aid to travel.
It is a digital food and wine trail that can create an itinerary for users and assist them to navigate around the island.
This website is well-suited to be used on mobile phones and tablets, and will be a huge benefit to visitors to the island, and to trade partners, especially those with limited time, who wish to visit specific places in the most time-effective manner. Built into the navigation capability will be an option to have your itinerary emailed to you once it’s created. You can also see a list of all the events that are hosted on the Food & Wine website, including cellar doors, farm gates, eating-out locations and pop-up venues.
Businesses listed on the site will also be able to create unique offers to customers wishing to visit their locations, and mobile businesses, such as food vans, will have the ability to update their icon to move with them as they alter locations. It will also include opening and closing times, addresses and contact details.
Wendy Campana, Commissioner, is pleased to endorse this great initiative.
“This Digital Trail will allow businesses to take advantage of all sorts of opportunities to present their unique locations and offerings to visitors and residents,” Wendy said.
“Knowing your way around the island, giving an idea of what’s achievable in a day or a half day – these things will add to the wonderful experiences people have come to expect when visiting Kangaroo Island.”
