The largest outdoor adventure playground in Australia
Heading to Shepparton or on the way from Echuca,
2km from Shepparton, you'll find KidsTown Adventure Playground.

KidsTown is the largest outdoor adventure playground in Australia and is suitable for all ages

For the little ones, there is an enclosed playground where they can play to their heart's content. For the older children, there is the large outdoor slides and some bumpy slides that race down the side of the hill.

Zooming down the big slides

KidsTown also has barbecue areas and some lovely grassy areas to picnic and a cafe / kiosk.

At this point, the entire playground can be accessed via a gold coin donation, making it available to all people regardless of finances. You can even come in and have a look before deciding whether you wish to pay or not.

Get lost in the maze

My children loved climbing to the top of the huge slides and whooshing out the end of them (although at one stage, one of them became airborne for quite awhile, launching at the end with great gusto)

The younger one loved the bumpy slides, where they could climb to the top and comes scooting down to the bottom bouncing along way

Designed as a community initiative many of the activities in KidsTown are recycled and brought in from the local areas and people in the community

One of the favourite climbing places is the recycled packing crates and maze, with dedications to the families that assisted to build it scattered throughout on plaques along with riddles jokes and things to amuse.

Once a year, KidsTown is home to KidsFest, a great festival for children of all ages with all sorts of activities for all to enjoy.

If you wish to pay for some activities, they also offer miniature train rides, sideshow clowns, jumping castles and varying activities that change throughout the year.

KidsTown welcome family groups and school bookings and it's a fun place to have a birthday party with no clean up afterwards, other than taking your rubbishaway.

Great undercover areas too
