The town walking trail is quite short, while the River Bend walking trail is around 21 kilometres, but can be shortened. Leaflets for both are available in the attractive Visitor Information Centre at the Tailem Bend Railway Station.
Historically Tailem Bend has had a very strong connection with the railways, and this becomes evident as soon as you arrive in town. Tourist information for the area is available from the old Tailem Bend Railway Station, while you can find items of railways heritage scattered all around.
Nearby there is a well kept reserve and fenced children's playground. There are several pieces of modern play equipment, and the piece de resistance - a 1913 steam locomotive which kids can climb and explore.
