In the winter months you’ll find them offering great value deals such as Kids Stay Free or Pay Two, Stay Three!

Honestly, what a complete surprise package to find this modern multi award winning complex sitting pride of place on the edge of Wallaroo’s Marina Basin and overlooking the white sands and blue horizon that frame Yorke Peninsula’s famous North Beach. We’re confident that regional South Australia doesn’t have any thing that even comes close to the hospitality experience you will find here, and being beach / coast / sunset chasers ourselves…..well this gem is your perfect base to explore all that Yorke Peninsula and The Copper Coast have to offer.

Wallaroo Marina Apartments comprises of 25 apartments of varying sizes, and here is our best suggestion for families……

Book a Boardwalk Apartment, a townhouse style stay offering three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, large kitchen + living area plus the most beautiful water views from your gated front deck. That’s enough space to take the grandparents along (hello babysitters while you check out Bondstore Microbrewery + Distillery), or to accommodate larger families or invited friends.

Or tick a Penthouse Stay off of your family bucket list, with the exceptional value, *huge* two or three bedroom Penthouse Apartments, each with their own entire roof top Sky Garden and magical water views. Talk about things that make you go WOW (and at a fraction of the price of a smaller city penthouse stay).

The best part? When you book and stay from now until September 24th, 2023 in a Boardwalk Apartment or one of the Penthouses – kids 16 and under stay free!

Here’s the boring bits: Offer is valid for new bookings only and stays must be booked directly with WMA. Offer is subject to availability + no further discounts apply. Details and enquire HERE

SO, what is there to do in Wallaroo with kids? So much!

Stroll the boardwalk or hire some bikes from reception (including kids size). Walk to the town centre for many cafes, quaint shops and crisp salty air. Visit the Nautical Museum, the playground in the centre of town or walk the long jetty! Why not throw in a squid jag and try your luck! Find Wallaroo’s famous oversized sunset swing, and take a drive along North Beach, just three minutest from your doorstep. Sip hot chocolates on your balcony or from the cosy lounge and watch the world go by, our views are second to none and you might even spot a dolphin in the Marina Basin. Our kids enjoyed the free nightly silo projection show. We recommend watching from your car and then grabbing a pizza in the main street to take back to your apartment for dinner! Rather have a counter meal? Wallaroo has six pubs, several cafe / restaurants and some solid take away options. In in the warmer months Wallaroo Marina Apartments hire kayaks and stand up paddle boards too! Lastly, you would be well advised to take a drive to nearby Moonta for the old fashioned lolly shop and a mini train ride, plus from October to April you can’t miss Splash Town, the Copper Coasts entirely FREE water park, with slides and tipping bucket.

Wallaroo Marina Apartments are conveniently located next to the Spencer Gulf Sea Road Ferry terminal, providing an ideal stopover for people travelling to and from the Eyre Peninsula.

So, whether you need some time to disconnect, reconnect or to seek adventure, there are loads of local experiences the whole family will love. Definitely make time to catch a beautiful Wallaroo Sunset too!

Book it in, honestly – memories and holiday traditions are waiting to be made!

  • Find it at: Fowler Terrace, Price We have found the perfect stop for the kids to stretch their legs, get some fresh air and have a snack while you are road tripping on the Yorke Peninsula. Price is on the eastern side of the leg (back of the thigh, if you will!), about half an hour before Ardrossan. It’s not a huge town, it’s known mainly for its salt processing plant but the playground sits on the edge of the town adjacent the salt flats and comes complete with toilets, a bbq and a pub across the road! It is also under shade cloth, so perfect for warm days. The kids loved the monkey bars, swings, climbing apparatus and actually spent a lot of time playing noughts and crosses! There are also one of those fitness stations for the adults next to it, if you are so inclined! This certainly isn’t the fanciest playground around, but it does the job for a quick play and runaround!
