Kangaroo Island History – Emu Ridge

looking back

Looking back at Emu Ridge

It’s funny how much this rings true for us and for a lot of people!

We can all go through life working hard and keeping busy. We all get to a point where we need a holiday or a change to break the monotony. It’s so important to look back and reflect on how life has changed. Businesses grow, the kids get older, the house expands. Certainly for us since we opened in 1991 a lot has changed, and we are proud of where we are today 🙂

Don Burke officially opened Emu Ridge in April 1991 and the kids had a ball the distillery was their playground! Wow how things have changed they now  have children on their own!
