Meet a SATIC Member – Juggle House Experiences

15 June 2018

Juggle House Experiences is a new and fun South Australian tour operator and Murray River holiday accommodation business, located ten minutes from the picturesque township of Mannum. Born from the exciting new venture of The Bend Motorsport Park and regional events like Sounds by the River, Juggle House Experiences specialise in land tours for floating holidaymakers along the river.

Owner operator and Master Juggler, Kelly Kuhn has worked in the South Australian tourism industry for over 20 years, with eight of those in the position of Regional Adelaide Hills Tourism Manager for the South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC). Skills gained in hosting famils and packaging holds her in good stead to proudly showcase the best of the State’s offerings in a luxury vehicle for both charter groups and free independent travellers.

Kelly says the most important feature of the business is that they customise the experience to what the customer is seeking.  

“The focus is on light hearted, but engaging and insightful stories. We juggle the balls, and make it happen.

“The name is simple.   Life can be a juggling act.  Juggle House Experiences allows customers to put the balls down.  Relax.  Unwind.  Enjoy the Journey.

“We have a foot in the door at the latest happening places in SA. Our existing relationships with food and wine venues, helicopter charters and other perceptive tourism friends allows us to create memories that last a lifetime.”

May 2018 saw the exciting new purchase of the 11-seater ‘The Entertainer’ chauffeured vehicle for Juggle House Experiences. The luxurious Mercedes limousine is fully equipped with three LCD TV’s, surround sound, DVD players, Karaoke and mini bar. 

Kelly says, “it truly is instant good mood material.

“With club lounge leather seating and plenty of leg room, our customers travel in style and have a trip to remember. For large groups, we have access to multiple comfortable vehicles with an intriguing line-up of entertaining story tellers."

For five years, Kelly has been working with Big Bend by Night storytellers Mardi and David LeBrun, recently featured SATC Tourism Champions. Continuing the partnership, they specialise in houseboating or river holiday rental groups from interstate and New Zealand, who add to their itinerary lingering Barossa wine tours, or trips to Monarto Zoo and the Adelaide Hills.

Outback pub tours are also show stoppers, and Kelly is looking to set up tours from accommodation properties based in the Coorong area since the establishment of The Bend Motorsport Park.

Another part of the business is ‘The Juggle House’, Kelly and husband Wayne’s homestay holiday rental situated on the Mighty Murray Way Touring Route.

“Everything is thought of, so the groups can just come in and relax. The main feature is the huge entertaining area with wood pizza oven, and the five-person jet spa which is not common in river holiday properties because of the maintenance required,” says Kelly.

When Kelly is not on the road, she also hosts the Lions 360 Tour at Monarto Zoo and is the Deputy Mayor for her local Council, plus raising her ten and eight year old daughters. So, Kelly truly lives up to her title as Master Juggler. And she can actually juggle for real - three in one hand, two in the other! Customers love seeing this, plus having a go themselves on tour.

“If I have learnt anything from my time in tourism, it is to appreciate the customer journey. The stages they go through from booking their experience, to living up to their expectations. We can still make it educational, but mostly people need to relax on holidays and love the light-hearted storytelling. It is vital we showcase every part of South Australia in the best possible light to keep them coming back.”
