Holiday @ Home {In S.A}

Support Local. Buy South Australian. Holiday Here This Year.

These are the catchphrases we have been hearing for years now and it has never been more important to support our local South Aussie businesses – ESPECIALLY our regional mates.

To have a great family holiday, you don’t need to go far! Scroll down for some fantastic trips that you can take with your kids that are only a few KMs from the Adelaide CBD or at most only a few hours out of Adelaide.

We know that South Australia and Adelaide has some of the best beaches, National Parks, food and scenery in the world! So put your money where you mouth is, stop researching ANOTHER Bali trip and start exploring your own backyard!


Bendleby Ranges

Located at the southern end of the Flinders, this stunning location is one that definitely needs a return visit to fully explore.

The views are simply stunning, the kind that you put on the computer screen saver and wish you could go back. We were met by the friendly Kylie, who showed us the very handy office building which doubles...

Leigh Creek Outback Resort

This trip for me really awakened a love of exploring. Not Lleyland Brothers, ‘travel the countryside and sleep on the floor’ style exploring, but visiting places I had heard a little about and was keen to explore further. Leigh Creek fit this bill for me. Apart from knowing it as a mining town, I knew very little else. The first thing you notice about Leigh Creek is how big it is! It kind of just pops up in the middle of nowhere, after seeing...

Well suited to a special occasion...

Discovery Parks – Adelaide Beachfront

This April I was lucky enough to spend a couple of nights on a “mini break” at Discovery Parks – Adelaide Beachfront down at Semaphore. I have to admit, I had to rely on the trusty GPS to get me there. Semaphore is a place I haven’t been to in a LONG time. I was expecting it to take much longer to get there actually so I was surprised when only around 45 minutes after we left the Adelaide Hills, we pulled up to the...
