Since sliding into my BMW X4 I’ve become super proud when driving around South Australia. I actually find myself planning long road trips… just so I can drive!

As a safety-mum, I appreciate the things that keep my precious cargo safe — like the Steering and Lane Control Assistant, and Side Collision Warning. This means I’ll always be warned if a car is getting too close or is crossing into my lane.

So, with peace of mind that my car is absolutely nailing the safety aspects, it’s time to put the heated seats on, crank my ‘Feel Good’ Spotify playlist and kick into Cruise Control, because road trips are the new OS holiday. Destination: Yorke Peninsula!


The best way to explore the Innes National Park is on your own two feet. Walk the Yorke is made up of more than 500km of continuous walking and cycling trails from Port Wakefield to Moonta Bay. Along the way, you can see the spectacular coastline and diverse coastal communities firsthand. You can choose between short walks or, for the more adventurous, why not try a multi-day walk? Download the Walk the Yorke leisure trail map and start planning.


Perched on top of cliffs over looking Butler’s Beach sits one of the most unique accommodations in the region, Hillocks Ocean Pods. Completely off the grid, they’re designed to leave a low environmental footprint by using solar power and rainwater. In saying that, they still offer all the mod-cons you need like a heater, a gas stove, a grill, an oven, a TV, and barbecue. Imagine waking up to ocean views.


A micro-brewery, distillery, and restaurant all in one funky bar, this Wallaroo trifecta is super chic with an inner city feel. Here, you’ll try the likes of refreshing True Blue Gin, Pink Gin, Classic Gin, Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur, and their popular Quandong and Blood Orange Gin. If you prefer beer, then indulge in some of the twelve taps on offer in the brewery bar. The food menu also showcases local artisans and producers, and is designed to share
