Kerry Dunn is the proud owner of her own little farming paradise at Tarnasey Farm. Home to a charmingly diverse menagerie of rescue animals, Tarnasey Farm is the perfect place for kids of all ages and stages to experience the delights of being on a working farm. They can feed and pet the animals, collect the eggs and meet resident celebrity Wilbur - and there's even self contained farmstay accommodate on site to keep the adventure going. Importantly, Tarnasey Farm and the Little Farmers Tours have been designed to be all-inclusive, catering for kids with different sensory needs or acess requirements. Reach out to Kerry if you'd like to know more!

 One perfect day

My perfect winter's day would start with a delicious breakfast and coffee at The Shores Eatery and then head back to Tarnasey Farm and get up close and personal with my beautiful animals. Most likely I would be hosting a Little Farmer Tour, because my perfect day definitely involves seeing the kids having an absolute ball on the farm. For winter I'd make sure I was wearing my rubber boots and old clothes so I could splash in the puddles and immerse myself in the fun of the morning alongside everyone else!

Coffee time

OMG! Lunch at Café Capella in Moonta would be divine! Great food, a beautiful setting and the service is on point. Love it. 

Can you share a hidden gem? 

Definitely Taste the Yorke in Moonta. Jo is so incredibly passionate about local produce and her passion and enthusiasm for all things Yorke Peninsula shines through in her cosy cafe.

 What about a favourite winter activity?

Sitting in the restaurant at the Coopers Ale House with my family watching the dolphins come into the Wallaroo Marina through the floor to ceiling windows or watching a storm role in while enjoying a beautiful meal and staying nice and warm.

Best place to stay during Winter? 

We are so truly blessed to have so many beautiful places stay and enjoy great food and coffee on the Yorke Peninsula but my favourite would have to be sitting by a camp fire outside my cabin at Tarnasey Farm and watching the sun set, it’s breathtaking and the kids love it!! Don’t forget the marshmallows :0)

Mashmallows!

The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
