There are talks of building one at Hallett Cove (and we’re here for it) but it’s just that at this stage, talks. So, if you want to experience some tidal pool action how about a trip to ‘The Burgh’? It’s a two and a half hour drive from Adelaide CBD……..Unless you’re a realist and your...

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...

Nook & Nourish Moonta

Cafe Capella’s Moonta

Whenever you travel to a regional town, you always ask the locals “where is the best place for a feed”, which usually points you in the right direction. In the case of our Moonta trip, we were unanimously pointed to Café Capella’s for the best family feed, and boy we were not disappointed. Easy to find, right in the heart of town on Main Street, with choices to dine in or take away on offer, we chose to dine inside –...

Mount Lofty Family Friendly Hike

Lets just be straight up here. Climbing Mt Lofty isn’t fun.

Top 10 things to do with toddlers in Adelaide

Toddlers are busy, toddlers are fun, when they throw a tantrum you’ll just want to run! Toddlers can be hard work, but can also be SO MUCH fun.

Finding that safe space can be tricky though and a fully fenced playground, shallow spot for a splash on a hot day, a cafe with a great play corner or a venue that caters for toddler needs is like finding gold in them thar hills. Here’s our top 10 ways to keep your toddlers happy, entertained and having fun in Adelaide

Exploring your own backyard with the kids and finding secret little spots you didn’t know about, is one of the best things about being a parent (apart from the constant thanks they give you for all the sacrifices you make…Ha!).
