Experience the Southern Encounter this Father's Day at SteamRanger

Would you like an interesting Father’s day out?

Get hold of your children and the dads in your family and have a full family day out on the Southern Encounter! SteamRanger’s Southern Encounter departs from Mount Barker. Sit back for a relaxing journey back in time!

The train departs Mount Barker, traveling through the back of the township and then you’ll find yourself in the bush! Listen as our locomotive powers up for the climb to Philcox Hill, the highest point of the line. It’s from this point you’ll have to be on the lookout for Kangaroos hopping along the side of the track!

After exiting out of the Adelaide Hills we are on the plans and into the Scottish village of Strathalbyn! Continuing across the plains and onto the towering viaducts of Black Swamp, Finniss and Currency Creek you’ll then find yourself in the waterfront towns of Goolwa and Port Elliot. As the locomotive climbs out of Port Elliot the coast greets the train. From your carriage window the Southern Ocean greets you with a wave. If you look across Encounter Bay you may have to look out for a whale or two!

You’ll roughly have 2 hours in Victor Harbor, plenty of time to get lunch, and have a wonder around this beautiful town! Why not take a stroll across to Granite Island?
A late afternoon departure with our Buffet Car on board means you can sit back and relax in our carriage with a coffee or tea on the way home as we retrace our journey back to Mount Barker.

The Southern Encounter departs Mount Barker at 10 am on the first and third Sundays of August, September, October and November. Trains returns to Mount Barker at 6.10 pm. Bookings are Essential.

Tesalate Towels

This year, give the man you love something unique and special like a Tesalate sand-free towel. Tesalate towels are made from AbsorbLite microfibre. That makes the sand slide right off, instead of getting stuck in the looped fibres like regular towels. It’s also so compact and perfect for the man who likes to pack light.

The towels are also lightweight and super absorbent. Goodbye to the days of carrying wet, heavy and sandy towels. Dad will be so stoked that the towels are likewise capable of absorbing up to one litre of water, but it dries up pretty quick.

With over 30 designs to choose from, Tesalate’s standard-sized towels retail for AUS $ 79 while the Towel for Two sizes retails at AUD $ 139


Shifty Lizard Brewing Co

Dad, an annoying, lovable Ba*^£$d! A flog, unique individual, increasingly emotional man, ever present, legend of a man!

If any of that fits your Dad, then you need to look after him this Father’s Day, and our team here at Shifty Lizard Brewing Co. have the perfect $49.00 pack (with *free delivery* on the Friday prior Father’s Day!)

We’re pretty damn serious about making good beer and having some fun here at Shifty Lizard, and we are reasonably reasonable about doing it responsibly. The beer is what brought us here, it’s why we do what we do, but ultimately the fun is what actually matters. It’s central to our branding, our brewery taphouse in Willunga, our team, and in our beer. You can taste in every bottle with new flavours, scents and sensations and eyeball it on our labels and with every new shifty experience or location.
You know Dad wants to join us for a good fun beer. Go on.
