You might want to put Port Broughton in your family travel plans! It’s the latest holiday/caravan park to go ULTRA family friendly and we went to check it out. Located right on the beach at the beautiful Port Broughton, we absolutely loved our stay at this park with the absolute standout being their brand new in 2020 waterslides, water park and mini golf!
With a range of updated and modern cabins plenty of large, grassy camping and waterfront powered sites and ensuite sites with it really offers something all family sizes and budgets. We stayed in a Bayview Villa on this trip and there is just something quite brilliant to waking up with the kids, grabbing the kite or a footy and running down onto the beach to have a play each morning. Or just sit and have a coffee and enjoy the view.
But lets start with what the kids will really want to know about. The splash park and mini golf course. Open from September 2020, these have been a huge hit and it was bloody tough to drag Mr 6 away while we were there. With 2 waterslides, tipping buckets, ground sprays and interactive pieces this is such a fantastic addition and really make this park one of the best family holiday spots in S.A. What we loved, is our Mr 6 isn’t actually a huge fan of water slides, but there was so much for him to do in the splash park (aside from the water slides) that he just loved every minute of it. That was really appreciated.
The mini golf course, a very well put together (trust me, we know our mini-golf) 9 hole course with some cool designs and structures scattered throughout to add to the fun! One tip, don’t let the kids win…make them earn it.
They have updated a lot of the park in 2020 too. You may notice the fencing around the jumping pillow, which is great for added security of the little tear-away tykes. You can whip up your own gourmet pizza and cook it in the pizza oven and don’t miss out on the addition to the pedal karts too, with 2 new 4-person karts, just in time to teach Dad to learn to pedal 4 people around the park rather than 2 (looking at you lazy Mr 6).
There is such great appeal to places like this, you can really make the holiday whatever you want. Want to be active, hire a pedal buggy or 2 and explore the park (that was my morning cardio each day….lugging around tired tweenagers on the duel buggy whilst chasing Mr 5 on his buggy), or kick back by one of the pools or at the beach and relax.
The kids will never be bored with the 2 brand new additions to the park; a Modular pump track for bikes, scooters and skateboards (lets just say I didn’t try this one out as I know my capabilities) or the huge funky monkey bar set up. The monkey bar set up is designed like a ninja course, which although quite hard for adults who haven’t used monkey bars for a while, were fantastic fun for the kids and suitable for all ages. With a jumping pillow, plus all the other tourist park facilities like BBQs and laundry/common room areas, its not hard to see why this is such a favourite spot for families visiting the Yorke Peninsula.
With a heap of kids activities scheduled for school holiday periods, plus movie nights on the big screen in the reserve, it was such a great base for us to explore the Copper Coast. Being in the heart of Port Broughton, close to pubs, coffee shops and supermarkets, it has everything you need.
They’ve also recently added brand new large 3 bedroom cabins AND ensuite sites! Accommodation options for all family sizes and budgets – we love it!
Port Broughton is located 170km north west of Adelaide at the top of the beautiful Yorke Peninsula neighbouring the Mid North, Lower Flinders Ranges, Clare Valley and Copper Coast.
