*** AUGUST 2021 UPDATE***

Stage 2 of this fabulous development has been completed and it looks brilliant.

The earlier redeveloped GT Fisher Playground in Victor Harbor opened in July 2019 and is located where the old train playground was, right near the horse trams, this nature playground will have the kids smiling all around.

What an amazing interactive, quirky playspace the people of Victor Harbor have delivered. Based around the local community feedback and ideas the design and theme of this nature playground was to keep the strong ties of Victor Harbor. Indeed they have certainly managed to do this. These include the use of the granite, the inclusion of an island with causeway, a fisherman shack and railway inspired elements. They have hit the mark and created an amazing play space designed for all abilities and lots of inclusive play areas.

We love how the play area caters for a variety of ages and certainly has something for everyone offering a range of adventures. For the older kids there are lots of climbing options and heaps of funky elements, sculptures and the like that inquisitive eyes will appreciate.
For younger kids there’s lots of rocks and logs to balance on, ropes to climb and slides for all sizes.

The GT Fisher Reserve playground upgrade has swings, slides, plenty of ‘hiding’ options (cubbies, teepees etc), heaps of climbing and balancing equipment, sandpits and of course great, nature inspired elements.

  • Myponga Nature Playground opened in mid 2018 and was a very welcome addition to the local area. This is another nature themed playground from the folks at Nature Play Landscaping who are behind some of our other favourite playgrounds including the new one at Point Turton The park has lots of wooden and rope climbing features, swings, wooden monkey bars/climbing ladder and a nice big sandpit. A beautiful spot to stop for a play and it's located on the main street of Myponga right between a bakery and take away shop, cant go wrong with that! It's fully fenced, there's a BBQ and the large shady trees surrounding the park make up for no shade sail (trees are way better anyway) There's also no toilets on site, but there are public toilets across the road, maybe 400m walk away. Check out the Myponga markets across the road open 9:30 am until 4:00pm Saturdays, Sundays and most Public Holidays and it's also not far to the Myponga Reservoir Reserve. Lots to do in the area so make a day of it! Image credit: Nature Play Landscaping Find it on the Main Street in Myponga

  • Where: Railway Terrace, Karoonda Part of the Mallee Playground Trail (A ripping local initiative linking 3 playgrounds at Karoonda, Wynarka and Wanbi), the space themed Karoonda Playground is an absolutely awesome attraction for the region, making it a must stop for Adelaide families out on a road trip. The star attraction is of course the 3-storey high tower, complete with double tube slide and observation deck area. The playground is fully fenced, with a bark surface (so wear shoes!) and also boasts a flying fox, hammock and water play area. We popped in on a school holiday road trip and the kids loved this one (even though the large tube slide does look a bit crazy!) Throw in some toilets, plus a stones throw from the bakery and pub across the road and this will be a regional playground highlight for years to come. Oh and don't forget to check out the Karoonda Silo Art during your trip! Read more about the silo art around our fab state here.

  • 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.
