We can’t believe how lucky we have been! We have just spent the last four days of our trip at Discovery Park (Barossa Valley).
We were fortunate to win a couple nights in a “Luxury Safari Tent” through the company’s G’DAY Rewards page. These have only just been opened at the park and look fantastic!
Of course romantic, luxury tent for two means leave the kids at home, which we just couldn’t do… athough we thought about it!
Switching into a Superior 2 Bedroom Cabin was no problem for Jacky and her team. It felt like a palace as we piled in. Chloe enjoyed the thought of the bunk bed and exclaimed “we even have a toilet!”.
We have been living in our camper trailer “Myrtle” for the last 6 months. A bathroom to do our teeth in is quite a novelty.
The staff at Discovery Park Barossa Valley were so accommodating. They helped us store not only the kids but also poor, tired Myrtle who has had a tuff few months on the road.
We were so happy to able to stay an extra night and enjoy all that the park and local region has to offer. The kids had a long list of activities they needed to do. This was without even leaving the park:
- Water park
- Go carts
- Heated pool
- Feeding the sheep
- Watching a TV and DVD’s
- Recreation room
- Treasure hunt and quiz
Kaz and I had a long list as well… Yalumba Estate, Bethany Vineyard, Pindare, Turkey Flat, Penfolds etc etc. Needless to say our fuel economy might suffer on the long run home.
This stay has been a true highlight of our trip. Staying in such luxury, meeting Jacky, Bill and the rest of the Discovery Park Barossa Valley staff as well as soaking up the ‘valley vibes has been the perfect end to our epic adventure. We are now on the final run home.
