5. Eats and Treats
Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil Distillery, Macgillivray
This casual eatery serves light meals with a menu that includes a cider tasting paddle, and a kids tasting paddle of flavoured milk, juice and water. Taste complimentary eucalyptus and honey sweets and learn about the history of the distillery. The outdoor play area will keep the kids entertained while you eat.
False Cape Wines, Dudley East
The relatively new False Cape Wines is a family-friendly cellar door with a kids menu plus an enclosed lawn, children’s playground, basketball backboard and animal viewing area that’s safe for children of all ages. Sit back, relax and appreciate the award-winning wine that honours sustainable wine practices, while the little ones have the time of their lives.
Dudley Wines, Penneshaw
Boasting beautiful indoor and outdoor seating, Dudley Wines is a scenic spot where you can enjoy a pizza or platter with your beverage. The outdoor play area is fully equipped and there’s a one-hole, one-par golf course at the top of the hill—see if you can land your ball in one of the boats across the gully!
Clifford’s Honey Farm, Kingscote
This honey farm stocks honey, biscuits, chutney, and jams, and there’s also outdoor seating to pause and indulge in Jenny Clifford’s famous honey ice cream. The island’s famous honey once featured in a range of ice creams with specialty ingredients by Connoisseur Ice Cream. Kangaroo Island honey flavour was developed in collaboration with local chef Kate Sumner. It is no longer available, but happily the local honey ice cream is also a connoisseur’s delight! The farm has a play area with a sandpit, toys and a kid’s cubby house.
