Kids in parks

Your gate­way to nature explo­ration and adventure.

South Australia’s nation­al parks are a trea­sure trove of nat­ur­al won­ders and cap­ti­vat­ing expe­ri­ences for every­one, regard­less of age. Our parks play an essen­tial role in pro­mot­ing health and well­be­ing, offer­ing a vibrant space for kids to explore, learn, and grow, while also pro­vid­ing a unique set­ting for fam­i­lies to con­nect with each oth­er and the beau­ty of nature.

With an array of cap­ti­vat­ing land­scapes, rich bio­di­ver­si­ty and incred­i­ble cul­ture, there’s always some­thing new and excit­ing to dis­cov­er in our parks. From leisure­ly strolls to exhil­a­rat­ing hikes, and from edu­ca­tion­al activ­i­ties to wildlife spot­ting, the pos­si­bil­i­ties for adven­ture are endless.

To help you make the most of your time in our parks, we have curat­ed a col­lec­tion of valu­able resources for edu­ca­tors, fam­i­lies, and kids. These resources include edu­ca­tor mate­ri­als, fam­i­ly-friend­ly activ­i­ties and tips, and infor­ma­tion about our part­ner­ship with Chil­dren’s Uni­ver­si­ty. Dive in and start plan­ning your next unfor­get­table jour­ney into the great outdoors!
