About
Located in Tanunda, we are a proudly family owned and operated business offering the biggest and best Dinosaur themed Mini Golf in Australia, along with a timeless 12-lane ten-pin bowling centre. The world-renowned Barossa Valley wine region is famous for wonderful wines, delectable food, and stunning scenery - and now, for bringing the prehistoric world to life on our beautifully scenic 18-hole mini golf course! Wind your way through lush gardens along with sparkling creeks, with friends from an age long before lurking around every corner. But don’t worry, we feed the T-Rex before opening… usually. Inside, you’ll find a beautifully kept 12-lane ten-pin bowling centre, complete with modern amenities and newly updated with 55-inch HD score screens, so it’s never been easier and more enjoyable to have a bowl. Regardless of age or skill level, there’s no shortage of fun to be had for all! As a family, we pride ourselves in providing an atmosphere that encourages big smiles, raucous laughter, good times, and a day in which memories are made to last a lifetime. We love Barossa Bowland & Mini Golf, and we can’t wait for you to come down and see why for yourself!

Great fun
Jun 2021
A great fun experience. We went on a Monday morning, so there weren't many people there. Enjoyed a game of bowls and a game of minigolf. Both areas were very clean and well maintained. Would love to take my grandsons next time!

Pretend COVID plan
Jun 2021 • Family
This would have been a good time if the management did care to follow their own plan. Staggering the golf is a good idea. We were told to be on time to accommodate this. Our small group of 3 wasn’t on the second person when they sent 10 ppl straight in behind. There was no room to maintain distance. Barossa Bowland plan is all lip service and enjoy the revenue. Poor form and in this case no concern for health safety and requirements.

Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed to read your review as we do take the responsibility of adhering to our COVID plan quite seriously. We do stagger our bookings however whilst you may have been on time, not everyone is so at times bookings may go out closer in time causing a line up. We don’t over book and have turned over around 300 people away from going out on the course in the two days so far over this long weekend – if it was all about revenue, as you say, we would have just taken payment and sent them all out on the course. We have all the signage that we are required to have in our venue and the local police have advised what we have in place is exactly as expected of us – the responsibility to maintain social distance is up to the customers themselves on the golf course. Our course is outdoors and large so we are permitted to fit far more on there than we actually do. Hopefully this provides some understanding from our point of view and apologise if you feel our standards were not up to your expectations.

Great family day out!
May 2021
What a fabulous facility, with fantastic service and great staff!
Highly recommend the experience to others.
I was particularly impressed with the attention to detail to adhere to COVID-19 sanitation and other requirements, from being rewarded by staff with positive affirmations when showing our 'green tick' on the QR codes ("champion!") to the immediate and thorough cleaning of the ten pin bowling lanes.
We had a great game of bumper (for the kids) and normal (for the adults) bowling; then backed it up with a fabulous round of mini golf in clean, well-cared for gardens. The dinosaurs were a delight!
Ages 3 to 70 loved the day out. Congratulations on a wonderful attraction.

Thank you so, so much for taking the time to provide such an informative and thorough review of our business!! We are super proud of our team of staff and their efforts in providing such a high standard of care both with our customers and in conforming to our state government COVID requirements - it means a lot to us when customers take notice and give the positive feedback. I will be sure to pass this on to them all. Thank you again!

Mini Golf was tops

The grandsons loved the Dinosaur mini golf. Pressing the buttons to make them roar was certainly a great hit.

Fun, fun, fun
Jan 2021 • Family
Pleasant surprise. 18 holes of golf in what I would say is the best putt putt course in SA. Manicured gardens with plenty of shelters to protect golfers from the pelting sun. Well set out and not too difficult for the little ones who are just learning. Indoor ten pin bowling also looked like fun. We decided to save for another day and trip to the Barossa. Staff super friendly too.

Lovely family day out
Jan 2021 • Family
Booked in for a afternoon of bowling and mini golf. I would recommend that you book in rather than just turn up as the venue is small so gets busy quickly.

The bowling was fun. Staff are seen cleaning each lane following a group leaving and before someone else goes on.
Mini golf was fun and the kids enjoyed the dinosaurs.

Thank you for taking the time to review us - very much appreciated! Your advice is great, bookings certainly assist with securing a spot as we have turned away large numbers of people these school holidays as we can't fit them in - something we really don't like doing! Our staff are doing a great job with the cleaning and following our COVID Safe plan :-). Thanks again!

Great fun
Dec 2020
Pre booked the day before and got prompt response. Were a bit early for our games but due to other groups running late we’re asked if we wanted to start early. Had a game of 10 pin and a game of mini golf. Kids had a great time playing both. Whole experience took a couple of hours which made it all really good value. Staff were extra helpful despite being really busy. Dinosaur theme was also a hit!

Good venue rude service!
Dec 2020 • Family
Well presented venue is all that this has going for it!!
Get rid of the rude staff at the check-in counter.
Six visitors, 5 players, 1 spectator (with arm in sling after an operation, clearly not able to play), No! You have to pay!! You can't just tag along as a spectator but HAVE TO PAY $6!! Just about all the staff need lessons on how to interact with customers, friendliness out the door at this place!!

Hi Robert We are sorry you were disappointed with your visit with us yesterday. Your visit was during one of our busiest weeks of the year, we had already turned over 150 people away due to capacity restrictions in the venue on the day you visited. Our mini golf course is advertised on our website and in the venue as player only – we removed the non-player entry quite some time ago and ask for no non players in the venue during peak times, if there is space they can sit in our indoor or outdoor dining area which overlooks the course however this is not guaranteed. We also explain this to all who book when asking for numbers attending – if booking via our website (as you did) the information is all there on the form and it is also outlined in the terms in the booking confirmation email. Our staff, who you described as rude, made a decision to allow your extra attendee (who wasn't booked in) to go out on the golf course for $6 instead of the playing price that everyone else is required to pay – they didn’t have to do this with the course being player only. For them to be described as rude after doing this for you is disappointing. Our staff generally get good feedback from customers however our experience has been that if a customer is disappointed in our policies, that our staff are perceived as rude – even though they are just doing their job and following procedures. Businesses throughout SA are continuing to operate under quite strict COVID plans and restrictions so some patience and understanding from customers is always appreciated.

We had a fabulous time
Dec 2020 • Family
There were five of us. Four adults and one teenager and we are really enjoyed playing mini golf. A fair amount of that competitive spirit tootl. Then we had pizzas. I need to tell you - they are much better than the TV advertising! Delicious and plenty of veggies on the vegetarian one.

Hi Marilyn Thank you for taking the time to provide such a lovely review and we love that you all had such a great time golfing :-). On the day you visited I specifically recall your pizza order and it was made by one of our young staff in training so I will be sure to show her your kind words - thanks again! ~ Deb
