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.
