Find it at: Fowler Terrace, Price

We have found the perfect stop for the kids to stretch their legs, get some fresh air and have a snack while you are road tripping on the Yorke Peninsula. Price is on the eastern side of the leg (back of the thigh, if you will!), about half an hour before Ardrossan.

It’s not a huge town, it’s known mainly for its salt processing plant but the playground sits on the edge of the town adjacent the salt flats and comes complete with toilets, a bbq and a pub across the road!

It is also under shade cloth, so perfect for warm days. The kids loved the monkey bars, swings, climbing apparatus and actually spent a lot of time playing noughts and crosses!

There are also one of those fitness stations for the adults next to it, if you are so inclined!

This certainly isn’t the fanciest playground around, but it does the job for a quick play and runaround!

  • Find it at: Bay Rd, Moonta Regional towns often have great playgrounds and the playspace in Moonta is no exception. This playground is looking its age, but it still does the job! There's something for all ages here - little kids will love the sandpit and some of the toddler play equipment, kids tall enough will love the monkey bars and flying fox and older kids will enjoy the basketball half court - just remember to take a ball! This playground also has a bike track complete with traffic signs and road markings! Perfect for kids learning to ride, as it's nice and flat. There are also a couple of swing sets so you don't need to worry about arguments over whose turn it is! The trees give plenty of shade, but there is also a bit shaded verandah area with tables - you could really set yourself up for the day here! At the time of our visit (April 2023), new toilets were being installed which will be a great upgrade. There is also a maze - this was roped off during out visit but we are assuming it's because it is right next door to where the building…

  • Is it worth driving an hour out of Adelaide for a really cool retro photo of your kids? Erm heck yes if they come out as cool as these ones did! Just past Murray Bridge, about 90kms from the CBD you'll find Old Tailem Town Pioneer Village. Opened to the public back in 1987 it's Australia's largest Pioneer Village and is a fun little spot to spend a couple of hours and show the kids what life was like for settlers of SA from 1860 - 1960. There are over 100 buildings to explore, lots of cool cars, trucks and tractors, themed displays and a few (little bit scary??) life like costumed mannequins to really set the vibe. Sure, the place gets quite a mixed reviews on Trip Advisor and Facebook BUT our advice is to visit with no expectations and you'll probably be pleasantly surprised. It's a really quirky, hands on, up close experience and if you're into history you'll love wandering around for a few hours. It's not all hidden away behind glass which is pretty rare these days. Grab a map when you arrive, or just wing it and make your own adventure. Our highlights and tips.…
