Barley Stacks Winery, Yorke Peninsula

We love a winery that welcomes families and kids. Yorke Peninsula is known for a lot of things, beaches, fishing, summer holidays, Innes National Park…. and honestly? Traditionally wine has never really featured in this region, but stay with us because #worthit – this place is a cracker! It especially gets a high recommend from us, no matter where you are on Yorkes, if the weather turns ordinary – it’s a great place 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,...

Marion Bay Tavern

If you have ever explored Innes National Park, right down the bottom of the Yorke Peninsula, you would have driven past the Marion Bay Tavern. Might not look like a lot from the outside as you drive past (it is literally a minutes drive from the entry to the National Park), but this is a real hidden gem with spectacular views, incredible pizza and a really lovely place to take the kids. When we decided to spend the weekend exploring the deep...

Alpacas Chaparral

Where: 20027 Spencer Highway, Minlaton Alpacas are not scary. There we said it. If you imagine a large, long necked, fluffy dog that you just want to cuddle, you are on the right track. So with that in mind, you must make the quick stop off at Alpacas Chaparral when you are on the Yorke Peninsula with kids to say g’day to Shorty and Dee and have a free look around. With over 120 Alpacas on site, it is actually really cool to give them a...

Grazing Yorkes

Ordering a couple of grazing boxes to be delivered and waiting for us at Redwing Farm Stay near Moonta on the Yorke Peninsula is hands down one of the most brilliant ideas we have ever had. Cue busy week at work in the city before heading away for a little Yorkes escape, not a lot of time to plan and pack food, plus with four kids, no room in the car for eskies AND we honestly always prefer to shop local when we travel to regions of SA. BOOM...

Port Victoria Playground

A stunning beachside playground with lots to choose from. A challenging experience for little ones with rock climbing walls, balancing paths and lots of climbing. There is seating nearby and toilets are a short walk away (near the jetty). The BBQ costs a couple of dollars so if you want to cook bring some gold coins. After your play I’d recommend taking the stairs down to the beach and either taking a walk or climbing the rocks. We walked...
