You can EASILY spend a whole weekend discovering all the hidden (and not so hidden) family friendly treasures McLaren Vale has to offer. So why not make a weekend of it and book a night or two at BIG4 Port Willunga Tourist Park

With the sea and the vines so close this is great spot to make the most of both worlds. Nice combination for all the family. Beach speaks for itself which is walking distance and there are so many family friendly wineries in McClaren Vale to explore. With Aldinga town only a short drive away for some local eating places or takeaway and the he park has quite a few BBQ areas you can also utilise this is really a spot for everyone.

You will find a variety of cabins to suit all budgets. From camp sites, to wooden huts to 2 bedroom fully catered for cabins. We stayed in a deluxe cabin that was spacious, very modern and great for families. Would have been quite happy to stay a few more days. Our cabin had a lovely decked balcony that looked out to the greenery. Whilst it was a colder weather when we stayed we imagined using this space for many BBQs with the nicer weather.

BIG4 Port Willunga Tourist Park has a list of family friendly facilities to keep the kids happy. Swimming pool, jumping pillow, jumping castle, playground, mini golf, half court basket ball court, tennis court, outdoor giant chess, games room including a pool table and air hockey……you can even hire go karts.

With lots of wide open space to explore kids can just ride bikes or scooters around and enjoy the outdoor space. The park has a little shop for supplies if you run and out and the staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Final thoughts on BIG4 Port Willunga

Fabulous location with a little something for everyone. Lots to do inside the park along with lots of local activities outside to suit the entire family. We loved our stay and would certainly head back for another weekend stay. The perfect spot to base yourself for a McLaren Vale family weekend away.

  • A garden centre might seem like a weird place to take the kids, but this is no ordinary garden centre. This is a JUNGLE! For a gold coin donation, you can meander through the 35 year old palm forest, go on a jungle animal hunt and visit the Fairy Garden. Grab a clipboard and pen from the shop and GO! You’ll need to look up and down and all around, and remember the animals might have moved since your last visit! This fantastic adventure is fun for the whole family, young and old. Bring a packed lunch or picnic and take a break in the Summer House set deep in the Jungle. The nursery and gift shop is huge and boasts one of the largest cover pot collections in Adelaide, to go with the amazing indoor and patio plant selection.

  • Find it at: Port Augusta foreshore (Behind the Woolworths) Port Augusta Skatepark opened in 2010 and is still a fantastic community space in great condition. There no bowl per se but a large but accessible kinking bowled type area. It’s got a beyond vert half pipe section known as ‘the wave’. A smaller, beginner and transition area and a perfectly sloping downhill street skate section. Close to facilities, this is well worth a look on your trip up north.

  • Find it at: Victoria Terrace, Port Victoria A stunning beachside playground with lots to choose from. A challenging experience for little ones with rock climbing walls, balancing paths and lots of climbing. There is seating nearby and toilets are a short walk away (near the jetty). The BBQ costs a couple of dollars so if you want to cook bring some gold coins. After your play I'd recommend taking the stairs down to the beach and either taking a walk or climbing the rocks. We walked under the jetty and there was a lot to see. A local cafe is perfect for a snack if you haven't brought anything along. Plenty of car parks.
