The Sturt Reserve at Murray Bridge is a belter and well worth the trip up the freeway.

Located on the foreshore of the Murray, it can get a tad (very) windy at times but if you time it right, you won’t find a more beautiful spot to spend the arvo.

The playground itself is massive, in fact you would be hard pressed to find a larger undercover playground anywhere, with several playgrounds enclosed within (and a pirate ship!). Oh and its fully fenced too.

Just outside the playground, they have set up one of those “outdoor exercisey” set ups, presumably for parents who feel guilty after a huge pub lunch, but have a crack if you are that way inclined.

We love the variety here though. With a brand new pump track, skate park, rage cage (multi sport cage thingy) and of course the world famous (well…SA famous) Murray Bridge Bunyip, what else can you want! The Bunyip is free now too.

It also has heaps of parking, toilets, BBQs, seating and a massive grassed area for whatever activity takes your fancy (decent kite spot for fellow kite aficionados). The area also acts as the port for a heap of river cruises too so check them out!
