This is one caravan park that is very aptly named, it is all resort without the resort price that other parks sometimes charge. Hahndorf is only half an hour from Adelaide on the south eastern freeway and that is the direction I would urge people to come into the town from, with a caravan in tow. To come in from any other direction means driving through the main street of Hahndorf which takes nerves of steel, due to the narrowness of the road combined with parked cars on both sides of the road, continual flowing traffic and pedestrians crossing the road. Believe me I lived in this area for many many years and the popularity of this town is always like this, any time of the day, week and year.
It started as friendly banter between campsites in the caravan park but we took one-upmanship to a new level with an over the top wine and food matching evening with a little help from some friends. What started out as a decision to have a crab and squid linguine meal one evening with our freshly caught seafood soon turned into an all-out degustation for four, where we finished up matching drinks with each course and produced a menu of dishes that we would be happy to order out anytime.
See how you think we went with our menu.
Taking dogs on holidays is as much fun for them as it is for us I think. Like us, I’m sure they enjoy the social side of interacting with other humans and dogs. Dog friendly caravan parks are very popular and with more people travelling with pets they are catering more to the needs of four legged visitors, including installing dog washing facilities at some parks.
It doesn’t get much better than propping your caravan on a beachfront site during a South Australian summer. No matter what the weather does from day to day you always have a moving picture in front of you.
