Around an hour’s drive south of Adelaide on the Fleurieu Peninsula is the Myponga Reservoir which has recently been opened up for families to enjoy its scenic outlook and recreation options. A visit makes for an interesting day out in nature to go bushwalking, ride a bike, have a picnic, see plenty of kangaroos in the wild and get wide scenic views. After a healthy day out there’s also a way you can reward yourself at the end.
The season is open for collecting cockles at Goolwa Beach and whether you cook with them or use them for bait, it’s a heap of fun collecting your own. Cockle season starts from the 1st of November and goes through until the 31st of May each year. You can dig them out of the sand anywhere along the beach, parking in the beach carpark or at any number of places along this stretch of coast, then head down to the waterline with a bucket and a measure and you’re on your way. But for an even better experience you can’t beat jumping in the 4wd for a trek along the beach, finding a patch of sand all to yourself.
