    Hi

     

    I know Normanville is nt really far away - but its a great place for a weekend away - the beach is gorgeous and I love looking around the little shops around there - plus you could always do a trip to Greenhills - my kids love that place.

    Kingston SE would be about 3hrs drive, there's some lovely beaches around there, and could do a day trip to Naracoorte caves

    Why not go up to the Adelaide Hills, there's plenty of accommodation and loads to do. If your son is into cars then the Motor Museum at Birdwood is good, also there is the chocolate factory at Woodside, the giant rocking horse at Gumeracha, the Whispering Wall at the Barossa reservoir, Cleland wildlife park, Warrawong sanctuary, plenty of shops/cafes/accommodation around Hahndorf, Belair National Park has an adventure playground - plus it is lovely and peaceful, lots of trees/wildlife etc. You don't need to go too far out of Adelaide for a change of scene.

    Why not its only 2 hours by plane and 30 mins from GC airport, its quicker and ALOT more fun and the accomodation will be cheaper.
