Where: Newman Road, Charleston

Adelaide Hills Council have put the finishing touches on this fabulous new playspace at gorgeous Charleston. Coming in at about $180 grand, this has plenty to offer all of your kids as they stop off to stretch the legs during your Sunday road trip.

We love the 3 on 3 basketball court (plus adjacent tennis courts if that takes your fancy) as well as the little scooter track that travels around the playground. Lots of climbing equipment here too for the slightly older kids, with a tower and slide (plus cargo climbing net). Throw in swings and a giant rope plus a whole lot more, and you have a really good regional stop over attraction.

This is a beauty to turn into part of a day trip with a visit to Melba’s Chocolate Factory (check out all the info on them here) or how about find a family friendly place for lunch (we have lots of great hills spots here)
