Ember Pizza can be found in the impressive ‘Provenance’ precinct in the heart of Nuriootpa. A lovely old Penfolds building that presents as a hub of eclectic, genuine Barossa food, beverage and tourism experiences. A must do if you are travelling with others, as there is bound to be something here that is sure to please every one, including food and a decent lawn + indoor or outdoor dining, perfet with the kids!

Arriving in the Barossa off the back of a busy Saturday morning of sport, you guessed it – we had hungry kids on our hands and Ember made the perfect first choice.

The venue, service and menu options (heavily weighted with local fare) provided us with the casual sophistication that we were chasing for our Barossa (with kids) experience. Equally it offered space, a cracking uncomplicated kids menu PLUS an activity or two to keep them occupied while the adults confirmed our weekend itineraries over a wine (of course.)

Stand outs for the kids were the Mac’n’Cheese, high quality pizza, dessert and supplied lawn games out the front. As we were two families and our kids are tween(ish) aged, we also put them on their own table along side the adults for the win.

For the adults, we came for the Pizza and it did not disappoint. Think simple, quality Italian wood oven pizza (with the cutest pots of chilli oil FTW. The whole show here is very on trend.

Picture your self here soon, alfresco dining under an umbrella, local wine in hand, with full bellied happy kids running around on the lawn.

A little bit fancy. Simple. Tasty as hell. Perfect with kids.

  • Harvest Kitchen can be found at the top of Magnolia Rd, just outside the township of Tanunda, and partners with Calabria Family Wines Barossa who's tasting room sits under the same roof. (You may know it as Artisans of Barossa). We had high expectations after hearing so much about this place - including rave reviews on the food AND that it was extremely family friendly. Fair to say our expectations of both were blown out of the water. We didn't want a pub meal, felt like venturing from our accommodation, wanted it to be a little bit fancy (as it was our only evening dinner in the Barossa) BUT it needed to cater for the kids. And cater it did. Greeted on arrival with a cup of fresh textas for the table, the kids eyes lit up and they soon got busy with some hang man and selfie drawings, buying us time to properly peruse the menu. The kids menu was both simple and elegant. The Fried Chicken with Aioli was order of the day for the kids, and WOW, it might not sound like much but it was next level. It's kind of a big deal in the popularity…

Excludes McCracken, Streaky Bay and Roxby Downs Please don't ever think the Barossa Valley is not for kids. It is a truly amazing region for families to 'holiday at home' and visit after visit we find new activities and initiative for our young family members. Most recently we uncovered this affordable little slice of family holiday paradise in Tanunda - Discovery Park Barossa Valley Just under an hour from the Adelaide CBD, it makes an easy weekend escape that will land you right on the doorstep of world class and family friendly wineries, attractions, restaurants and more. Make sure you don't pack your Barossa itinerary too full because the kids will need time to check out the pool, three epic waterslides (honestly the biggest we have seen in a caravan park), loads of water play, bouncing pillow, activity room, playground and cart hire. Phewwww. We were tired just watching them (from the comfort of our cabin balcony, with a big Barossa platter in reach). If you happen to…

  • Now open to the public, the photos for this place looked fantastic and it lived up to the expectations and more! This family friendly and highly accessible facility (toilets YES!) features a 1km mountain bike trail, zip-line, in-groundtrampolines, multi-level adventure play space including a mega tower and slide, skate ramps, bouldering wall, half-court basketball, sensory sound forest poles, outdoor fitness equipment, play deck and plenty of picnic spots. It is the perfect place to spend an hour, or the whole day and its only a short walk to Angaston where you can grab a bite to eat or browse some of the beautiful shops. We absolutely loved the road trip to get there (which for us was about an hour through the hills) and then finishing up our day with a fab lunch at the award winning 40s Cafe a short walk away. We loved the open space, the heaps of parking, toilets, shelter and railway station design of some of the equipment, a nod to the railway precinct it was built in. The 1km mountain bike track is fantastic and the basketball court and skate park (plenty of scooters there on the day we went) add some great variety…
