What to do in Ardrossan - with Adelady and HelloSA

Just 90 minutes from Adelaide is the charming Yorke Peninsula town of Ardrossan, a fantastic family holiday destination with great fishing and crabbing and a relaxed atmosphere. 

Recently Hayley from Adelady explored this charming town for a episode of HelloSA. You can watch the Ardrossan snippet here. 

This charming tiny tourism town has so much to offer. Here's a break down of Hayley's Ardrossan itinerary featured on HelloSA: 

A blue swimmer crab adventure with Catch N Cook World Tour 

First up on Hayley’s itinerary was a hands-on blue swimmer crab adventure with Kim from Catch N Cook World Tour. 

The Catch N Dine Experience involves learning the basics of crabbing and then having a go yourself. Once you’ve caught a catch of crabs, you’ll head to the Ardrossan Hotel Motel where the chefs will cook up a fresh feast for you using your catch. Suitable for ages 6 and up, this experience promises fun for the whole family! Book your Catch N Dine experience here.

Cook up a storm with Grazing Yorkes cooking classes 

Hayley then got creative in the kitchen with a cooking class by Grazing Yorkes. Emily from Grazing Yorkes came to Hayley’s villa for a DIY picnic lunch cooking class. After cooking up a storm in the villa kitchen together, Hayley and Emily savoured their creations with a picnic lunch at the beautiful Apex Park.
