Adelaide’s biggest indoor action awaits at Funtopia. Featuring the world’s safest and most technically advanced climbing walls, restaurant quality food, coffee (and booze!), six private party rooms and so much more!!

Funtopia is divided into three sections, Playground World, Climbing World and Toddler World. You really will find a ‘fun-believable’ adventure for the whole family here. Plus now is as good a time as any to tell you that the onsite cafe Mr Spriggin’s is guaranteed to serve you a good quality hot coffee, healthy nutrition bowls, salads and wraps, homemade nuggets and popcorn cauliflower and of course some guilty pleasures just to get you through your visit!

The platters at Funtopia are great too (rookie tip; pre-order your platters). Actually, Mr Spriggin’s seems far too funky to be hiding inside a kids adventure mecca – but who’s complaining? Not the coffee/lunch/brunch Mums.

FUNTOPIA’S PLAYGROUND WORLD suitable for ages 2 and over. Socks must be worn at all times and can be purchased on site for $2. Expect Multi, multi (yep 5 x multi) level obstacles, slides and climbing, look out points as well as a pretty epic soft balls / cannon room. Not the germ-y type you crawl around in, more the type with air cannons and fancy tipping buckets. Prepare for war – our 3 year old loved this, as did the bigger kids.

FUNTOPIA’S CLIMBING WORLD suits ages 4 – 84 and features a very impressive set of interactive climbing walls from beginner to advanced. My five year old (who is pretty gutsy) couldn’t clip her self on and off, but had a fantastic time on several of the climbs. Got energetic 8 yo+ then we think this activity would be marvelous fun.
It’s all pretty high tech up the climbing end, and they tell us their technology on the self descending systems is world class. You really can’t fall, but can push out from the wall and ‘spider man drift’ with a gentle glide back to the floor. My kids LOVED this part and jumping off of really high things quickly became as much of a highlight as the climb.
Enclosed shoes are a must for climbing and it’s recommended that you book ahead to avoid missing out on the one hour climb sessions that happen on the hour (arrive at quarter to the hour for 15 minute safety brief prior).

FUNTOPIA’S TODDLER WORLD is specifically designed for little ones aged 2 years and under and is filled with lots of activities to encourage imaginative play including interactive games and obstacles, slides, play equipment, building blocks and much more. Toddler World will cost you only $10 for four hours access, plus free socks and a coffee (for you, not them!)

By far the best way to go is a Funtopian Value Pack which includes both Playground and Climbing Worlds plus a leap of faith jump and a pair of grip socks.

Not only is Funtopia awesome for a special treat for the kids, they also run PLAYGROUPS!


It’s $5 per child, adults enter free. They run Tuesday’s-Friday’s at 9:30am-11am for 0-2years and 10:30am-12pm for 3-4years during the school term. All the children get a Playgroup Passport where it has some free coffee’s on some visits or a treat for the kids on others, it’s a structured 30 minute start with different activities each week and the last hour is for free play in the playground with the other children everyone met in the structured session!
It’s run by the same person (Pamela) each day, so it’s more personal. She’s also a mum herself and it shows. Her kind and friendly nature is wonderfully received from both kids and parents.

Funtopia gets a massive thumbs up from the Kids in Adelaide Team. Hot weather, windy weather, wet weather, active kids, hungry kids, coffee play dates, birthday parties…….you really have to check this place out! Its clean, new, functional and offers plenty of tables and seating, pram space and baby change facilities.

With a large helicopter as its centrepiece, smaller kids can slide out of the chopper's belly as one of the many pint-sized highlights located at this much loved playground. There are also plenty of swings, see-saws, climbing frames and sand play equipment including the popular diggers in the huge sandpit. Much of the playground's fun is best suited to younger kids aged 1-5 years, however older kids will also enjoy the larger climbing frames, rope bridge and forts. Most of the equipment has softfall rubber matting or barkchips to break any falls.

  • When you have older kids, it can sometimes be harder to find playgrounds that give them enough of a challenge to stay enthusiastic enough to not be annoying.....thankfully Taperoo Playground is a winner! A beautiful spot, with fabulous manicured grass to make any dad jealous and is perfect for picnics. There is a small tramp built into the ground which is always fun for a bounce or two. What we loved the most was the huge climbing equipment which had a range or ropes and little challenges to weave around as you climb. We haven't seen anything like this in our travels for a long time and love some playground design creativity to challenge the older kids. There is also extra equipment with swings and slides more suited to the younger kids, nature play, plus a half court basketball court and outdoor fitness equipment too! They have also included a BBQ, shelter and toilets to make this a very well designed facility for the family.
