Family Friendly things to do on the Fleurieu Peninsula

Posted: 4 January 2017 / Prepared by: Miranda Lang


There is a good reason why the Fleurieu Peninsula is South Australia’s most visited region, it is known as Adelaide’s playground.

Such is the case for all playgrounds, they must be family friendly.

The Fleurieu Peninsula is undoubtedly a family friendly place, here are some of our favorite things to do.


1. Gemtree Winery, McLaren Vale

Not only is this a favorite McLaren Vale winery for adults, but children love Gemtree a well. The owners have created a family friendly cellar door, by adding a safe, entertaining playground in the beautiful surrounds on the winery.

2. Jubilee Park, Port Noarlunga

Unlike any playground that I experienced as a child, Jubilee Park is beyond incredible. Located ner the Onkaparinga River in Port Noarlunga, Jubilee Park is easy to get to and only 45 minutes from the Adelaide.  Jubilee Park is a  maze of wonderful wooden constructions consisting of multiple layers and levels for kids of all ages.

3. Strawberry Farm, Mount Compass

There is nothing that is sweeter then fresh strawberries! Families can experience the fun of going out to a farm and picking your own strawberries. Harvest the Fleurieu in Mount Compass is the perfect place to stop over a sample fresh regional produce.

4. Horse Tram, Victor Harbor

Victor Harbor has always been a favorite holiday spot for people from Adelaide. Part of the appeal is the family friendly attractions such as the Horse Drawn Tram.

Magnificent Clydesdale horses draw you along the causeway from seaside Victor Harbor to Granite Island.

5. Cockle Train, Goolwa

The Cockle Train is based in Goolwa along the Wharf Precinct and operates along the oldest steel railway to Victor Harbor. The Cockle Train climbs to the top of the coastal cliffs and passengers then experience some of the most picturesque coastal scenery.
