Our family visited the Big4 Barossa Tourist Park recently for an easy weekend getaway and had an absolute blast. There is HEAPS for the kids to do there, with a great location for checking out all that the Barossa region has to offer nearby.

Ideally situated in Nuriootpa, the Big4 Barossa Tourist Park caters perfectly for short or long stays with the family and is ideal for to use as a base for exploring Australia’s premier wine region. On check in, be sure to ask about the current activities, and check out the Kids Corner and kids packs right up front!

Picking up some kids activities at the Kids Corner

First off I feel I have to point out that the Barossa Tourist Park is home to 3 pedal go karts which our kids absolutely ADORED. With one for smaller kids, one that can suit 5 years to adults and even a 2-person option, there should be a kart setup to suit just about every family! We hired them *twice* in our weekend stay – and even the promise of a visit to the Barossa Chocolate Factory couldn’t get them to finish their ride early on the final day!

Go Karts

Ok, now you know about the go karts, onto the rest! Barossa Tourist Park has lots of accommodation options. There are plenty of lovely, grassy camping sites – with shade, easy access to the bathrooms and other facilities. They also have a number of great cabins to suit different sized families and we found their cabins to be perfect for a weekend stay – clean, comfortable and right next to the pool and grassy area! We recently spent a couple of nights in the Parkview Deluxe cabin below and it was perfect for our family of 4.

There are a range of great cabins to suit families.
Lovely, green camping spots.

The nearby park is great for a morning walk or cycle with the kids and, if you do bring the kids bikes, be sure to head into the Nuriootpa town centre for a morning coffee and cake! Adults and older kids could even ride around the region, stopping off at some wineries and parks along the way!

The gorgeous pool at Big4 Barossa Tourist Park

In warmer months be sure to bring your bathers as Barossa Tourist Park has a lovely swimming pool. Fully fenced, the pool includes a toddlers area and super cute mushroom water splash area, and with plenty of grass area alongside (plus a spot to play ball outside the gates, but where parents can keep watch). Alongside the pool is a covered area and the Games Room which is a great spot if the weather plays up or to entertain the older kids – plus the nearby BBQ area caters well to ensure fun afternoons all around!

Outdoors is where it’s at with our family and Big4 Barossa caters really well to active families. In addition to the go karts, and pool, our kids enjoyed shooting hoops on their brand new half court basketball. The tourist park also sits around the oval as an excellent space to kick the ball, and the smaller family members enjoyed the onsite playground too.

Half court basketball

If you need a hand working out what to do on your trip to the Barossa, the friendly team at the front desk are great to provide you with all information you need on what to do in the Barossa Valley. There really is something for everyone here!

Excludes McCracken, Streaky Bay and Roxby Downs Please don't ever think the Barossa Valley is not for kids. It is a truly amazing region for families to 'holiday at home' and visit after visit we find new activities and initiative for our young family members. Most recently we uncovered this affordable little slice of family holiday paradise in Tanunda - Discovery Park Barossa Valley Just under an hour from the Adelaide CBD, it makes an easy weekend escape that will land you right on the doorstep of world class and family friendly wineries, attractions, restaurants and more. Make sure you don't pack your Barossa itinerary too full because the kids will need time to check out the pool, three epic waterslides (honestly the biggest we have seen in a caravan park), loads of water play, bouncing pillow, activity room, playground and cart hire. Phewwww. We were tired just watching them (from the comfort of our cabin balcony, with a big Barossa platter in reach). If you happen to…

  • The Z Wine Cellar Door and Wine Bar is set on the main street in the heart of Tanunda. The corner location and floor to ceiling windows make it the perfect place to sit in comfort and watch the world outside. The beautiful vintage styling, chairs, sofas and ornate furnishings give Z Wines a feeling of elegance and cosiness. The menu includes a range of wines, hot and cold drinks, grazing platters, desserts, as well as local produce to take home from “Granny Zerk’s Cupboard”. The quality of the food and wine on offer is outstanding and a fantastic opportunity to sample the local fare. Tasting some of the Z Wine range alongside local produce is a must. We opted for a mixed plank and a regional platter, both of which were an absolute delight and fantastic value. One of the highlights of the meal was having Kristen talk us through each and every item on our platters, primarily local produce sourced from family businesses, with some items produced exclusively for Z Wine. The staff at Z Wine know the ins and outs of everything on the menu and they are passionate about sharing their knowledge and expertise. The Z…
