Fun stuff to do with the kids

With almost 4,000 kilometres of white ocean sand, South Australia’s coastline awaits and one of the best ways to explore this vast watery playground is gliding along the glassy waters. A short 40-minute drive to Port Willunga will put you and the family in prime stand up paddle boarding territory. Just keep your eye out for the SUP Down South sign to rent stand-up paddleboards or arrange a lesson with one of the accredited instructors. You can also hire SUP boards at Xtreme Kites & Paddle in Port Lincoln or SUP with dolphins on tour with Adventure Kayaking.

The Urimbirra Wildlife Experience gives you the chance to see more than 70 species of Australian fauna in their natural surroundings.

The paths through Urimbirra allow you to see the animals at close range and a walk through the 16-hectare site is a photographer’s delight. Freshwater and saltwater crocodiles are on display, as well as venomous snakes, pythons and lizards. Pat Koalas three times aday and hold a snake.

Located just five kilometres from Victor Harbor on the main Adelaide Road, Urimbirra is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘to preserve’ or ‘to take care of’ and there is evidence on the site indicating canoes and shields were made from some of the trees by local Aboriginal groups in the past.

Visitors can interact with a range of animals daily. Koala shows at 11am, 2pm and 4 pm; Snake handling displays at 4pm.
