Family Friendly Victor Harbor

Victor Harbor is an iconic seaside town less than an hour out of Adelaide. The weather is always a little cooler in Victor, which makes it the IDEAL place to visit with the kids during the searing heat of Adelaide summers. The beaches are great, with Middleton, Carrikalinga, Goolwa and Port Elliot a short drive away and great for body boarding, surfing and swimming. There’s delicious bakeries and family friendly cafes and restaurants to...

Wattle Point Wind Farm

Where: Sheoak Beach Road, Edithburgh (Just follow the gigantic windmills) File this one under ‘wasn’t sure if it would be interesting but it actually wasn’t bad’, because seeing (and hearing!) these colossal structures up close is really quite awe inspiring. It is also the windiest place on Earth (hence the wind farm being built here I suppose), but you can get within a fairly close distance to the windmills at the...

Location Cafe Edithburgh

If you are like us, then the first thing you do when you arrive at a small town for a regional retreat is work out the best place for coffee and food. Edithburgh is a small little place, which is part of the charm just quietly, but they are lucky enough to have a fantastic little cafe which is just lovely. Located in the heart of Edithburgh (you can’t miss it on your morning walk), you can take your pick from a large under cover area,...

Whispering Wall

Of all of the SA reservoirs, Barossa Reservoir with its famous ‘Whispering Wall’ is surely a favourite for kids. It doesn’t involve a big walk or hike and it is THE most magical experience to have one person whisper at the end of the reservoir wall and another hear it over 140 meters away on the other end. Better than milo tins on a string, and even better than the sound pipes in the Angaston Adventure Station (which are...

Mount Monster Conservation Park

Intrigued by the name on a recent trip to the South East (Limestone Coast), we couldn’t help but divert 14 km south of Keith to check out Mount Monster Conservation Park. Turns out it’s claim to fame is not really that monstrous at all, but is home to an unusual geological feature, that seems quite out of place, a big granite outcrop that can’t be found any where else in SA. A short hike (more of a rock scramble –...

Bukirk Glamping – Clare

If you have ever hidden in the toilet from your kids or partner to get five seconds of hush, if you have never left your kids with a trusted family member, sitter or friend over night (or even just for a wee while), I want you to repeat this – “in 2020 I am going to do something that is JUST for me”. My King Bed and Luxury Tent at Bukirk Glamping I needed a break. Call it what you like, Mum’s Time Out, Girls Night Away,...

Discover Stirling

Being ex-Heathfield High girls it’s no surprise we chose Stirling as the first destination of the Kids in Adelaide Discover Series. Stirling sits a speedy 7 minute drive from the city straight up the South Eastern freeway and has MUCH more to offer than just the most perfect roundabouts in Australia (their roundabout game is really up there, much to the disgust of my Crafers resident sister who thinks there is some serious roundabout...
