School holidays are fast approaching and there are plenty of ways for the whole family to enjoy McLaren Vale.

The Shiraz Trail, linking Willunga and McLaren Vale, is perfect for family bike rides with a safe and clear path suitable for all ages and riding abilities. This time of year is also perfect for walking in Onkaparinga River National Park and there are many short walks suitable for families.

When it comes to family-friendly dining options, you really are spoilt for choice in McLaren Vale. Many of our region’s eateries have menu options to satisfy every member of the family.

The McLaren Vale Hotel, The Victory Hotel and Old Bush Inn all have delicious menu choices for adults and children alike. Oxenberry Farm Café has a great selection of cakes, snacks and casual meals. Conveniently located adjacent to the Shiraz Trail, there is ample room to run around outside and it is a popular venue for families.

For the adventurers in your family, Adelaide Biplanes Kitchen Café is perfect for a spot of plane watching. Enjoy home baked cakes, slices and toasties and watch the planes take off and land right outside the window.

If the seaside is calling you, Star of Greece Restaurant offer a children’s menu that draws inspiration from the main menu, and their Kiosk has a selection of casual meals and snacks on offer that can be enjoyed there or as take-away on the beach. Of course, there is the added bonus of exploring the beach and caves after lunch!
