Riverland for Kids

The Riverland really is one of those South Australian regions that’s got it all! It’s a wine region, has beautiful scenery, great accommodation options & plenty of Riverland fun fun for the whole family!

The beauty of the SA Riverland is that you can choose to stay in one spot such as the central Renmark, or move around the region exploring towns such as Berri, Lake Bonney, or visiting the amazing Monash Playground (seriously, save a whole day for that one), all while sampling some of the great food at one of the many family friendly Riverland cafes or restaurants.

Have a look below at our top picks for a kid friendly Riverland holiday – put it on your list when you are planning your next South Australian family getaway!

 

Kids in Adelaide acknowledges and respects the traditional owners of the ancestral lands of the Riverland and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
