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 –...

If you are heading to the states South East or on a road trip to Melbourne or any where along Dukes Highway, Keith Playground (around 2.5 hours from Adelaide) is an iconic MUST stop.

Naracoorte Holiday Park

It is probably a given that on your Limestone travels you will pass through Naracoorte at some stage. Either as a destination to visit the Naracoorte Caves or as a half way point as you travel further south. Whatever the reason, the Naracoorte Holiday Park is not your run-of-the-mill regional caravan park. You may be accustomed to holiday parks having a jumping pillow and maybe a kids games room, but how about a mini golf course and a huge mini...

Balnaves Winery at Coonawarra

We are fairly spoilt here in SA when it comes to our world famous wine regions. From McLaren Vale to the Barossa, we don’t have to venture too far from home to visit some great places. But any conversation about great wine regions in SA has to include Coonawarra. As you head down the Riddoch Highway towards Penola, you will see beautiful vineyards for miles on either side. You can bounce from cellar door to cellar door or as we did, found the...

Tempest at Robe

We saw some photos of Tempest before we arrived so expectations were high. What we didn’t expect was to be absolutely blown away by this brilliant place. It was so good, that one of my kids refused to leave. She will now greet future guests on their arrival. Located in prime position overlooking the harbour at Robe, a mere 2 min drive from main street (or a 10 minute walk…but you know how hard it is to walk home after pizza right?), it is...

Naracoorte Caves

Pop quiz. What is South Australia’s only World Heritage site? If you answered Magic Mountain you would not technically be right, but you should be. No it’s the Naracoorte Caves of course. I would like to think that most South Australians have at least heard of the caves, or have already been. For me my last visit was 10 years ago but like a lot of places, it constantly changes and updates so for me it was like a whole new experience on this...
