Where: Sheoak Beach Road, Edithburgh (Just follow the gigantic windmills)

File this one under ‘wasn’t sure if it would be interesting but it actually wasn’t bad’, because seeing (and hearing!) these colossal structures up close is really quite awe inspiring. It is also the windiest place on Earth (hence the wind farm being built here I suppose), but you can get within a fairly close distance to the windmills at the designated viewing platform.

You will find Wattle Point just out of Edithburgh, which you can easily see just south of the township. Well worth a drive and those who are interested can read up on all things wind farm tech, or you can just stand and admire how big they are. Chuck it in the itinerary for your day at Yorkes, it takes 5 minutes and is rather cool and unique.

  • Find it at: Between Symon Crescent and Gartrell Boulevard, Craigburn farm Nestled amongst the bushland at Craigburn Farm, this brand new adventure nature playground is a real winner and worth the drive. Essentially being a bit of a ninja/climbing course over rocks, poles and other naturey type objects, it is great for kids and parents to test out those hamstrings and the sore lower back. It is a bit lacking in extra facilities like toilets, fencing and shade, but it is a stones throw from the epic Blackwood Treetop playground so it makes for a cool playground double header.

  • Find it at: Woodcroft Farm, SA In the heart of Woodcroft Farm, this spot has lots of natural shade and if you enjoy a hit of tennis, then you are more than covered here! The playground could probably do with an equipment upgrade or so (it certainly has the space and it really would make it a fantastic attraction) but as it is, for the locals it is a nice destination for a walk and for the kids to have a run around. Seated shelter and plenty of parking, but no toilets or BBQ sadly for this one. More for the toddlers and young kids this one, with a couple of slides and swings pretty much covering all this one has to offer equipment wise. Personally, it is just a lovely relaxing spot and if you live nearby it is worth a look.
