The new water park, located just 12km out of Adelaide, boasts three slides, a huge dump bucket and water cannons. Suitable for all ages, the water park has ground sprays for younger children and is a zero-depth complex, offering parents peace of mind. The new water park complements the park’s existing family-friendly facilities including a 45 metre outdoor lagoon swimming pool, indoor heated swimming pool, toddler pool, jumping pillow and indoor tennis court.

Marion Holiday Park has a relaxing country feel in a city location. Nestled amongst 200 year old red river gum trees, Sturt Creek & Wetlands, it’s a beautiful boutique BIG4 Holiday Park with excellent service and facilities.

When you can prize the kids away from the park, be sure to hit the road and explore all Adelaide and surrounds has to offer, including the nearby Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, Adelaide Zoo and fascinating museums and galleries.
