Sometimes we just need a break, a getaway, a refresh…..
If you’re anything like me the funds just don’t cut the impromptu jumping on a plane and heading off to sunny QLD to unwind for the weekend. As much as I’d like them to I’m just not that lucky.
So, what’s the next best thing? For me it’s getting away for a weekend with the family and checking out some of our local Adelaide holiday spots.
Recently I found a ripper of a destination and the best part - it’s only 10 minutes from my home…WINNING!
I introduce you to Marion Holiday Park...
The pricing per night was great – we’ve spent more as a family just going to dinner and the movies. And for the cost we got to enjoy all of the facilities that the park has to offer, which includes;
A 45m lagoon pool
A second undercover heated pool
A splash water park which includes water-slides and a tipping bucket
An indoor tennis court
A games room
Adventure park playground including a giant jumping pillow
Camp kitchen & various BBQ’s
The park is also set amongst the Warriparinga Wetlands and Sturt Creek which make for a lovely walk and creek side setting. Inside the park grounds it is spacious and lush being filled with shady trees and swaying ferns. I had to be pinched for thinking we were actually on holiday in QLD.
There's plenty to keep the kids entertained!
I loved how the camp grounds were away from the pool and water park, but we had the Adventure Playground literally at our doorstep.
This meant that our kids could play to their hearts content while us adults were able to relax at our camp site and still have a hawks eye on them.
We also didn’t have to endure a constant string of ‘can we go in the pool, can we go in the pool, can we go in the pooooooooool’ as it wasn’t in their immediate line of vision.
The Adventure Park was excellent and large enough to keep our tribe of children occupied for hours. The jumping pillow was a huge success too.
Have you ever tried running on one of those as an adult? It was the strangest sensation and my legs seemed to turn to jelly after about 5 minutes….I’m still amazed that the kids could stay on there for so long and were still able to walk. Give it a go for yourself and you’ll see what I mean.
They've also now included an incredible outdoor entertaining area with a large screen, beanbags and a bar for the adults....PERFECT FOR EVERYONE!
All in all - we highly recommend the park for a weekend getaway or a long stay - even if you only live 10 minutes away!
