This iconic business has been entertaining families for many years, and it shows no sign of becoming any less popular. Just as we "oldies" lose the desire to climb to the very top observation platform, there are so many young children with abundant energy to...More

Looking for something to do on the weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to head to The Big Rocking Horse as I'm still relatively new to South Australia. It was a cooler day-make sure you bring a jacket as it is quite shady! It was...More

Even though the location is more aimed at kids, there is a great animal sanctuary where you can get up close and personal with so many animals! Highly recommend purchasing some animal food and taking a nice walk.
