Beautiful Barmera

We didn’t have to go too far to find our next stop having decided that we would find somewhere with power and water and some play equipment for the girls. Staying at the Barmera Discovery Park, we settled into our site and the girls headed straight for the pool.

Situated on the edge of Lake Bonney, Barmera Discovery Park is a great base to explore the Riverland region.  One of the great things about this park, aside from the water activities (which our girls were too young for) and the pool of course, is that Mr Whippy (or Ms Whippy as it were) would make her rounds throughout the park just after lunch.  Unfortunately Miss A missed out as she was having a nap, but Miss B relished her first Mr Whippy experience.


We also spent one day out at Banrock Station which is a particular favourite of mine.  Our first time for lunch which in the words of Miss A were ‘dee-licious’.

Back at Lake Bonney, we went for a walk along the foreshore and checked out the exercise equipment along the way.

Before a trip into Monash to the Adventure Playground where the girls ran amok in one of the coolest playgrounds we’ve ever seen!

Our three nights at Barmera were great and gave us the opportunity to chill out before we headed to our annual Australia Day shenanigans at Lake Cullulleraine.


Have you ever visited the Riverland? Do you ever look for a holiday destination that will keep the kids occupied for more than five minutes?
