Hayley and Lauren from Hello SA have created the perfect family-friendly Copper Coast intinerary! From hands-on farm experiences at Tarnasey Farm to scenic bike rides through Moonta with Copper Trails Bike Hire, this is the perfect way to spend some quality time - for the young, and the young at heart. 

Moonta on two wheels

Hayley made the most of the sunshine on a bicycle adventures with Copper Trails Bike Hire in Moonta. Founded by Anne and Colin in 2022, award-winning Copper Trail Bike Hire allows you to explore parts of the region you might never have known existed. They offer a range of bikes, including electric bikes, push bikes and kids’ bikes as well as sales, repairs and all the gear you need to keep you on the trail. 

During her ride, Hayley uncovered some of the area's hidden gems, including the Secret Garden in Moonta Bay. This gorgeous garden, created and maintained by locals, is the perfect spot for a picnic on the green grass and features a walkway leading directly out to the beach - a great, kid-friendly pit stop. 

Fish and chips with a view

The bike track along Port Hughes Road leads directly to the picturesque Port Hughes foreshore, where Hayley found the Port Hughes General Store, a local spot renown for its delicious fish and chips. Rounding out the afternoon, the team savoured some lunch while enjoying the stunning coastal views from the deck. 


A slice of the good life at Tarnasey Farm

While Hayley was riding and relaxing, Lauren had the pleasure of visiting the charming Tarnasey Farm, which is owned and operated by Kerry and her family. It’s a great destination that the whole family can enjoy. 

At Tarnasey Farm, you’ll find seven self-contained cabins which are perfect for families seeking out authentic farmstay accommodation. One of the highlights at Tarnasey Farm is the Little Farmers Tours. These tours run daily at 10am and offer a truly hands on experience - the slobbery cows are a definite favourite!
