The Copper Coast Tourism Centre at Kadina offers a really impressive putt putt course which will get those family competitive juices flowing. As someone who takes his putt putt quite seriously, I was very impressed with the quality of the course and the variety of challenging holes.

Sometimes putt putt can be a little on the lower end on the fun scale if the place isn’t up to scratch, but with a large selection of different sized clubs, heaps of different coloured bright balls and a quality course that has holes styled on the Copper Coast region, the whole fam will love this one. Except if you are competitive and don’t win. Maybe then you won’t like it. But for everyone else, its a ripper.

Allow about an hour to cruise around this fun course as part of your stay at the visitors centre, and for only $5 bucks each it is a bargain. You may or may not get a hole in one (I did) or beat your family comfortably (like me) but you will have a good time.

Pro Tip: Take some water and don’t forget the sun cream. Not a lot of shade and that old country sun can be a tad harsh as my sunburnt soul found out the next day.

  • The highlight (for me…kids may vary) in the Copper Coast Tourism Centre activity list was the Farm Shed Museum. Its a bit more than that really, comprising of a seemingly unending number of large sheds and warehouses housing a range of historical and current day farming machines and tools. Every kid loves a tractor and they won’t be disappointed here. Take your time wandering through and seeing how farming was done in years gone by, admiring the serious amount of hard work that would have gone into doing tasks that we take for granted today. My favourite part was the displays showing the history of the region. Your kids love of history may vary (mine were a bit meh at times) but for me, showing them all this stuff is really cool. They will thank me later. Probably. They have set up an historically accurate house to show what life was like in the late 1800s in the area, which for fellow Downton Abbey fans (Hi!), you will love. The old Kadina Primary School remains and to sit the kids down in the ye-olde classroom was really cool. I am sure the kids loved being back at school during their…

  • So you are at the Copper Coast Tourism Centre, you have done the other activities and are tired, just wanting to sit down. But your kids, running on some sort of mega energy, just want to keep going. The Copper Coast Information Centre have got you covered again. Next to the gift shop you will stumble into a huge indoor play cafe, catering for all ages with an area for the toddlers and a larger playground for the big kids. With slides, interactive ball activities, ride on toys and with all equipment in really good condition (seriously, there is nothing worse than a play cafe that is falling apart and plain gross) this is a great way to top off your visit. Let the kids run around and sit down to a coffee, cold drink or as I did, a selection of mini pies, nuggets and usual kids fave snacks. You may even leave some of the mini pies for the kids, unlike me. Things to note:Kids must wear socks. It's a good idea for adults to bring them also. (Socks are available for purchase at the Play Centre). Water is able to be brought in to the centre but…

  • Ah the Copper Coast. Every South Australian worth their weight in pie floaters and frog cakes will have a story to tell about some sort of family adventure on our famous Yorke Peninsula. Whether it be getting stuck in a 20km traffic jam past Port Wakefield with every other person in the state, or being chased by an emu at Innes National Park (maybe thats just my story?), there are so many reasons why it always has been and will remain such a popular holiday destination for us all. Fun fact; the whole peninsula is a really bloody big place! Looking kind of like Italy and probably about the same size (not a fact), it doesn’t take long to drive around the whole peninsula but to properly relax, explore and take it all in, now that takes a bit of time. As a result for our trip we focussed on the northern part of Yorkes, the Copper Coast. Making up the towns around Wallaroo, Kadina, Moonta, Port Broughton etc, this beautiful part of the state has so much to offer for families. Given the price of petrol is higher than the moon, the fact all this is under 2hrs from…
