The South Australian June Long Weekend is around the corner! We love bringing you the best ideas for how to spend that time with the kids and have dropped some ideas here to make it easy for you to find something to do. It’s not too late to book a June long weekend camping trip, or you could plan a family bushwalk, bike ride, visit a new playground, get through a list of classic family movies you never get around to watching, get stuck in to the garden or get busy in the kitchen with the kids (that’s code for they make mess and you clean up – you have been warned).

Some of the businesses below will require booking so please click the links for long weekend more info and inspo below.

Go for a Family Bushwalk

Our family bushwalking post has been getting lots of hits over the last month and with photos like this one at Morialta it’s not hard to convince the family to get up and get active at least once this long weekend


Check out a new bike track or trail

If wheels are more your style why not load up the bikes and check out one of our favourite bike tracks or trails. There’s something to suit all ages and abilities.

Go Fishing

We’ve got just the list for your June Long Weekend fishing adventures and have listed five great places you can easily take kids fishing and you won’t need a boat.
