Jacky and Bill Jones, sounds like a famous Hollywood couple doesn’t it?
While it may not be Tinseltown, the vineyard backdrop of Discovery Parks – Barossa Valley is definitely fit for a movie set and, these guys are the superstar park managers who make sure the lights, camera and action is always rolling for their guests.
The couple, along with their 11-year Jack Russel Minnie, have been with Discovery Parks for nearly four and a half years and just absolutely love having a park full of families, friends and fur children. Their favourite place in park to host some regional hospitality is at “the Main Stage, as it brings families and guests together for various events and activities”.
Jacky and Bill always make sure the park is in tip-top shape, as you never know who might just pop in and say G’DAY. “Chris Hemsworth came to visit with his family to play in the pool and waterpark during a visit to the region in 2018. They came to swim in the pool as it was an extremely hot day and their luxury accommodation didn’t have a waterpark for their 3 young children”, Jacky proudly says.
While Jacky is the hostest with the mostest, she also understands that people need some time out and recommends the adults only safari tent experience for those who want “a bit of zen time away from the kids, as it’s a child free zone!”.
Could this private glamping area become the next celebrity holiday hot spot?! You’ll just have to book in to Discovery Parks - Barossa Valley to celebrity spot for yourself!
