Regional Activities



Try your hand at trout fishing or blueberry or strawberry picking at Mt Compass, golf at several friendly and excellent local golf courses or bird watch from the patio.

  Visit numerous craft centres and museums around Prospect Hill and Meadows, McLaren Vale, Mt Compass or the pretty town of Strathalbyn.

There are plant nurseries in the district:- trees, roses, and irises.

The coastal beaches are just 30 minutes west.

The famous Victor Harbor is only 35 min south of here.  Lastly, don't forget the Southern Vales Wineries!  The Barossa may be more widely known, but the wines from the Southern Vales are second to none!

Locally, there are many quiet country lanes to stroll that are reminicent of the quiet country life of yesteryear.

You can walk through the Kyeema National Park and Kuitpo Forest section of the famous Heysen Trail which wanders along the top of the hill opposite the property just across the road.

Fish for yabbies in the dam, or find a book from the small library and put your feet up for a few hours.  The children will hopefully be busy with their adopted horses for hours.




Chamel Fields and environs is a birdwatcher's delight. Our garden supports several superb Blue Wren and Red Robin families, Eastern rosellas freeload in the chicken yard, white and black cockatoos, galahs and kookaburras fly by and hawks and wedgetailed eagles  hover overhead while ibis, crane, wild ducks and herons stalk the waterways and magpies chortle in the trees.



 

The Southern Vales Wineries (all 45 or more of them!) and the excellent restaurants of McLaren Vale are just down the hill. Don't forget to pick up a couple of bottles of your favourite drop to enjoy on your visit here. The excellent local restaurants deserve your serious consideration too.  They are 15 minutes away.
Meadows, just 10 minutes up the road has a family friendly pub and pizza restaurant  as well.
