McLaren Vale has an abundance of family-friendly experiences, both outdoors and indoors, offering the perfect opportunity to enjoy the region this school holiday.
Here's just a small selection of them:
Gemtree Eco Trail
A hidden gem tucked away in McLaren Flat is Gemtree's Eco Trail. A quaint trail through native plantings where you can listen out for the frogs, say hello to the resident emus and even be the first to spot a koala in Southern Koala Rescue's pre-release enclosure.
Bring your own food to make use of the BBQ and picnic facilities or pre-book a Gemtree Picnic Pack:
Picnic Packs $49.00 (vegan option available):
- Olive oil
- Moroccan jam
- Locally-made bread.
Eco Trail Kids Pack $10:
This pack is for the young adventurers out there. The activity book is all about exploring the Eco Trail and features a scavenger hunt map that asks kids to answer nature questions along the trail. The pack also includes: a special prize, a native plant identification guide, an organic juice, and a dried fruit snack from a local orchard.
Pre-book picnic packs online here or call the Gemtree team on (08) 8383 0802.
