An animal farm… on an island? Sounds like twice the fun! Narnu Farm, on the Fleurieu Peninsula’s Hindmarsh Island, is an animal farm designed especially for children and families – making it a great place to visit if you’re spending summer in the area.

With seven self–contained cottages or bunkhouse-style accommodation, there are daily activities for parents and kids to enjoy together, including horse riding (there are short pony rides for younger children), twice-daily animal feeding sessions, rides in a vintage truck, and a menagerie of cute baby animals including lambs, kids, calves and piglets. Get ready for a cuteness assault – the kids will love it!

The details

Hindmarsh Island is about one hour and 15 minutes drive from Adelaide. Narnu Farm cottages from $150 per night. 0438 060 585.
