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.

  • This place is definitely one of the hidden gems of the South! A gardening store might seem like a weird place to take the kids, but this is no ordinary garden centre. For a gold coin donation, you can go on an animal hunt through the jungle - grab a clipboard by the shop entrance to tick off all of the life size animals as you find them hidden around this 30 year old garden "jungle" You'll need to look up, down and all around! This is a fantastic activity, especially for toddlers and younger kids. We stayed about 35-40 minutes as we were rushed for time, but you could easily spend longer. The only thing missing is a coffee van! If you aren't quite done with your plant shopping and want to keep the kids close by, there is also a Fairy Garden inside the nursery itself. Plant shopping, a jungle, animals and fairies - there really is something for the whole family here! Jungle in Willunga is a bamboo specialist and an expert stockist for palms and tropical plants that are suited to the Adelaide climate. You can create you own slice of Bali in your own back…

  • Where: 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.
