Benefits of Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is a fantastic sport for many reasons from the vibrant social element, to improving general fitness and flexibility and testing your will on some of the more challenging climbs. Not only does rock climbing get you using your body in positions you probably never have building strength through a full range of motion. Rock climbing is ideal for anyone who works at a desk all day (office workers and students, that means you) as it uses all the muscle groups that get neglected in day-to-day life causing muscle imbalance and pain over a prolonged period.

Slacklining is a sport quickly growing in popularity around South Australia. It is primarily a balance-based sport that takes a bit of commitment and lots of concentration. While it may seem impossible at first once you spend some time on the line you realise how satisfying and achievable taking a few steps can be. Whether you are an established trickliner or don’t even know what slacklining is, we are happy to help you learn to walk again. Beginners will enjoy walking a shorter line (up to 25 metres in length) while those more experienced in slacklining may want to challenge themselves on the long line (up to 100 metres). With very few places in South Australia offering a slackline make sure to give it a go next time you visit (plus it is free whenever you come down to climb).

Magpie Springs Wine. Art. Coffee.

Southern Boulder is located on the beautiful grounds of Magpie Springs just south of McLaren Vale in the Adelaide Hills wine region. Magpie Springs is one of the first vineyards to be planted in the Southern Mount Lofty Ranges. The cellar door boasts a range of premium wines for all tastes and fresh coffee sourced from around the world and roasted on-site. The gallery showcases the work of resident artist Avril Thomas and exhibitions from other artists changing every 6-8 weeks. Available for weddings and private functions or a leisurely day out, Magpie Springs is one of the hidden gems of the Adelaide hills.

Make sure to stick your head into the cellar door and gallery for a bottle of wine, enjoy the one-of-a-kind artwork (and perhaps purchase a piece to take home) and take in the tranquil surrounds.
