We love finding little hidden adventures for you to explore with your families. Being the city folk that we are we had no idea that this beautiful spot could be found just down on the Fleurieu, around 15 mins drive from Victor or about an hour from Adelaide.

You’ll find Hindmarsh Falls right smack bang in the middle of the Fleurieu Peninsula, around 15 mins from Victor or an hour(ish) from Adelaide. The Falls can be accessed at the end of Waterfall Road, Hindmarsh Valley. It’s a fairly easy undulating 15 minute walk, but there are stairs and the path can sometimes get a little slippery so not great for prams or wheelchairs unfortunately.

There is an upper carpark (small) and larger lower carpark adjacent to the picnic area. No toilets though so make a pit stop somewhere before you arrive.

The track features a range of rollers and berms, a wall ride, and timber bridge. TrailScapes are the clever folks behind this project and according to their website this track is "Very much like a little MTB playground in the middle of a town, this unique loop gets “sessioned”, laps after laps by riders of all ages and ability level. This is definitely a great trail to gain confidence on the bike." We can't wait to check this one out for ourselves and will update this post with more info soon.

  • Nestled amongst the gum trees Minkarra Park offers something for kids of varying ages. This could be a great park to get out and burn some energy with the kids for the following reasons - The bright and colourful soft fall rubber flooring surrounding the playground. Our crawler makes the most of the long stretches of flooring and climbs all over the large rocks. - For little ones walking, the playground offers swings, a large spinning wheel, slide and climbing triangle. - For the more adventurous and thrill seeking the large Skate Park facilities or BMX trail may be the fix. - For those who want to explore nature there is the flagstaff rotary walk with both paved and natural path's. Alternatively the kids may want to create their own fun and make a branch cubby. - Even the family dog wins with the fully fenced Minkarra dog park. - For a quick workout (or show the kids how strong dad is), the permanent outdoor gym with soft flooring is the place to be. Minkarra is a bit isolated from any shops or cafes so a suggestion would be to swing by The Hub shopping centre in Aberfoyle park or…
