Picture this. You head up to the Yorke Peninsula, landing in Wallaroo, ready for a blissful relaxing trip away from the hustle and bustle of city life. You have packed enough clothes for you and the kids to last 48 weekends and are all set, but you have no idea where to eat with the family. Well never fear, because The Boatshed has you covered!

Obviously this place is packed during summer, with prime, absolute beachfront in front of the jetty making it one heck of a stunning location for a meal. During the colder months (we visited again in July) we got pole position at the window which is so close to the water (I mean…being a Boatshed we assume it needed to be close to the water once upon a time) it feels like you are floating amongst the waves. Did we mention the sunsets? Is there anything more breathtaking than a Yorkes’ sunset over water. No. The answer is no.

So the scene has been set, with all the boxes ticked for that serene night out on your weekend away, but for us with a big ol’ family of young and old kids, we honestly cannot speak highly enough of the food. Quality pub style feed, obviously the seafood is a highlight but the burgers and schnitty’s were top notch, at 1998 prices (seriously when was the last time you got a schnitzel for under $20 bucks?) Our clan had more than enough to eat and there was some indication they may in fact have been full, but the ice cream tank opened up when the included kids ice creams rolled out to finish off the meal. For the adults, we could not resist the churros and ice cream, which were the perfect way to end the meal.

Now an absolutely fabulous feature (and one the awesome staff are rather proud of) is the fact they offer a seperate gluten free kitchen, where over 90% of their meals can be made into a gluten free version. They offer a delicious crispy GF batter, crumbs and burger buns that get rave reviews from their coeliac customers. They can also cater for egg free, nut free and dairy free in this extra kitchen, which is such a great addition to ensure everyone can eat together…. no matter the allergy.

With indoor and outdoor eating areas, which offer plenty of space for the kids no matter the weather, finish off with a jetty walk or a stroll along the foreshore. If you happen to head in for dinner, just behind in the silo row, check out the belter of a light show that lights up the town each night.

  • If the last time you've seen a general store was in a movie, it's definitely time to pack your bags for a road trip. Location - Port Hughes. First Stop - the General Store! Holidaying *anywhere* on Yorke Peninsula? You need to look this magical little place up and visit, it's that good, worth the drive and you will undoubtedly make some family memories here. A general store has historically been the bread and butter of small-town life across most of country Australia. A stop where you could find pretty much whatever you needed all in one place! Local communities and surrounding rural areas relied on these shops for groceries, fuel, mail, a bag of mixed lollies or an ice cream for lucky kids and maybe fishing bait + tackle in beachside locations like this one. They were used as gathering places where neighbours could exchange news, gossip and check in on each other. These days - other than inflation and a decent glow up, not much has changed. Here at PH Gen, or The Genny, as it is affectionately known on the Copper Coast, both locals and travellers can soak in the atmosphere and charm of this small-town gem where community and…
