Cafe Bonython at the Bonython Park Playground is definitely a Kids In Adelaide favourite!

You could literally spend a day here! Offering shelter and a range of seating within eyeball distance of the playground, there’s so much happening at this delightful little space. Better still, it’s GOOD. Good food, good coffee and a heap of good initiatives for kids, birthdays, high teas, events, all of it. They have really thought of every thing – it’s part café, part party venue, part lolly shop! There is a new menu as of December 2023, so we have just been back to check that out AND they have put in the cutest indoor play area for toddler / pre schooler age. Seriously, take us here any day of the week.

On our most recent visit we absolutely loved the new kids grazing box. It’s EXACTLY the kind of thing that spins our wheels. Kids want an epic milkshake or babyccino? Café Bonython. Need somewhere to take Nan for a cuppa, but the kids also need to burn around and be kids?Cafe Bonython. Want the cutest cupcake or you know, a poop emoji cup cake? This place! It is ALL here. We are so consistently impressed.

Open seven days a week for exceptional breakfast and lunch , or just grab a coffee and sweet treats – it’s the perfect spot for a day out. They even open on Public Holidays. Legends.

Enter from Port Road…..walk accross the oval and find them directly adjacent state of the art Bonython Park Playground. Loved for its hampster wheel, story book trail, nature play, swings, merry go-round and epic double flying fox.

There are ducks to feed (and yep, you can buy duck food here – also a treat for your dog.) There’s often remote controlled boat racing to watch, the police horses are near by, the occasional plane over head for the aviation lovers, a train bridge off in the distance and the SAPOL Road Safety Centre for riding bikes and scooters on a mock road way.

FIVE SOLID STARS from the Kids in Adelaide Crew.

  • Find it at: Livestong Pathway, Hindmarsh (along the River Torrens) We all already know that Bonython Park is AWESOME - between the playground & the newly re-opened Café Bonython, we honestly thought it couldn't get any better. But lo & behold, it does get better! Introducing the Bunyip Trail! It's a Children's Trail that you can access by heading west along the river from the playground & follows the story of The Bunyip of Berkeley's Creek with interactive storyboards & activities for the kids to do along the way. The Trail officially starts on the eastern side of the footbridge beside the small weir & is a 500m return trail. Walking SA suggests it will take around 1hr, but that will definitely depend on the speed of your kids! The track is pram friendly but can be bumpy in parts, so go with care. We suggest downloading the Activity Booklet from the Walking SA website before you leave home to get the most out of the trail. The storyboards also include QR codes if you don't want to worry about printing the booklet. If you're not familiar with the book, The Bunyip Of Berkeley's Creek, have a look below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fg90_GixEo…
