We love a themed playground. Anything with a train is pretty much a certain winner with most kids, so a playground with a train AND a paddle steamer to climb in and on is double the fun! You’ll find this playground in the Riverland town of Morgan about 2 hours drive from Adelaide.

Choose your method of ascent (stairs, rope ladder or climbing wall) and scale to the top of the paddle steamer for great views of the Murray.
Across the train track you’ll find more play and climbing equipment including slides, swings, climbing walls, naughts and crosses and a firemans pole. There’s some great nature play elements in this park with lots of large rocks, logs and stepping stones dotted around that kids will love to climb and balance on. There’s also a sandpit.

There’s a huge sloped grass area with room to kick a ball and also get some good speed up on a roly poly down the hill. There’s BBQ facilities and picnic benches and toilets are available near the river. Local shops are nearby so you can grab some snacks and a drink on the way there.
