Yorke Peninsula

The Yorke Peninsula is a STUNNING place to visit with the kids. If you haven’t been there yet, you just do not know what you’re missing. Only an hour drive from Adelaide you’ll come across beautiful towns like Ardrossan with Pt Vincent and Edithburgh beyond that. Make your way to the end of the peninsula and you’ll be in the spectacular Innes National Park and Marion Bay, or cut across the middle to spots like Moonta there are SO MANY options for beautiful beaches, fantastic family fishing spots, farms and farm stays, country boutique shopping, playgrounds, water parks, shipwrecks, award winning ice cream and heaps more!

Kids in Adelaide acknowledges the Nharangga people, the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Yorke Peninsula and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

Grazing Yorkes

We recently did a huge 11 night trip to the Yorke Peninsula with the kids in tow – fantastic trip, but by the time we got to our second to last stop, we were running a bit low on the food we had packed when we left home and who has time for supermarket shopping on holiday? Enter, Grazing Yorkes! We got in touch with Emily and ordered a cheese platter box and a breakfast box and she delivered them direct to our accommodation so once we...

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...
