If you are on a road trip through the Mallee region, a stop to stretch the legs and have a play at the Lameroo Town Centre Playground (and Dog Park if you have a pooch with you!) is a must. Our eight and five year old LOVED this playground and definitely wanted to stay longer! You’ll find some fantastic playground equipment, shade sails, a pump track next door plus the dog park behind.

This playground isn’t quite fully fenced, BUT it is fenced along the road side which is great, as it’s the main road through the town and has a lot of cars, trucks and motorbikes whizzing along. Toilets are about 100 m down the road. There are some sheltered picnic tables – there isn’t a huge amount of food places to choose from in Lameroo so BYO snacks or grab something from the cafe or supermarket across the road.

Onto the playground! Here is what you can expect to find at the Lameroo Playground:

  • Swings including one of the saucer swings
  • A big hill for the kids to climb up with a wide slide down the other side
  • In ground trampolines
  • A couple of whizzy roundabouts
  • A big rope climbing tower
  • A modern seesaw
  • Sandpit
  • Two cute truck rockers

There is a pump track next door which is built into the ground and looked to have enough difficulty for older kids as well as plenty of easier spots for younger riders.

From this playground you also have a view of the STUNNING Lameroo Silo Art. Your kids might even be lucky enough to see a train go by, as the railway is right behind the playground and dog park.

  • Find it at: 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.

  • How about a road trip with a twist? As the Silo art craze spreads across rural South Australia we say YES please to exploring new places in our backyard with colourful art that has popped up over the year on silos across SA.What I think is really awesome is these towns want YOU to visit them and that is why they have invested in such a great feature all for US to explore. Say hello to South Australia's LARGEST outdoor Art Galleries... the kids will love it... go selfie mad... and how many can you see in a year??! If you love these silos, you will also love the Water Tower Mural Trail on Southern Yorke Peninsula.

  • Find it at: Railway Terrace, Tailem Bend Train fans this one is for you! That might even equally apply to the train enthusiast parents as well, because this one is a beauty! A fully fenced, humungous playspace in the heart of Tailem Bend, this one not only caters to train fans but includes a great range of play equipment for all ages. When we popped in for a visit, there were lots of local families enjoying what is obviously THE place to be for families in Tailem Bend. If you can drag your little engineers away from the train, you will find not one but TWO great playgrounds set up to cater for the younger ones and the slightly older kids. Chuck in some swings, jumping and balancing balls (under a nice shade sail) as well as a painted sheep (because....well thats a Tailem Bend mystery that one) and you have yourself a fantastic regional playground stop. But what, there is more? It is across the road from an absolute belter of a country bakery. So grab yourself a pie and a donut and stretch the legs while the kids run amok after being in the car for a few…
