We have had a fantastic time at Scrubtide, using the pool on those over-40º days and the beach most other days. It was a real treat to be able to have sunset swims with spectacular views. As a family we: explored a few wineries (Woodstock is very good if you have kids, they even have an animal sanctuary); took the 'Cockle Train' from Goolwa to Victor Harbour where we then walked over to Granite Island and explored the views and sculptures, before catching the horse-drawn tram back to the train; drove to Glenelg to catch the tram into Rundle Mall and then back again on the tram to enjoy the Glenelg water play areas and a local eatery; and at the Willunga Market we stocked up on olives. Thanks for your recommendations for wineries, we have brought home some lovely McLaren Vale wines. We met lovely local people at the beach on our sunsets swims and the winery folk were also very friendly and knowledgable. We were struck by the community feel of Acacia Terrace.
Scrubtide is so well equipped and we really appreciated the little details, including the labels—both informative and amusing. The cubby-house, pool, kitchen, dining, living room and the kangaroo greeting us in the driveway... all brilliant. We didn't find the very clever charging station until we were packing to leave... we should have explored the drawers more than we did. Thank you.
