In the opposite direction to the stunning Australian Gardens, you find this wonderful woodland picnic area.
Follow the bush track from the car park for around 400 meters to discover it. This is totally pram and bike friendly, but be on the lookout for wildlife. Signs say that you are sharing your path with snakes, so beware. Mamma has never sighted a slimy creature, although we did find some wombat holes!
Along the path you will find some logs to sit around and admire the surroundings.
There is a heap of open grass space to unpack a picnic blanket and enjoy, as well as two sheltered picnic areas.
And, of course, there is the playground. Set amongst one giant sand-pit there’s some pretty cool equipment for all ages. There’s two large climbing pyramids joined by a bridge; swings, rocking horses, spinning circles, slide and sand-play equipment.
It’s the perfect environment to enjoy the outdoors.
Mamma's special mention:
Of course a visit to this picnic area isn’t complete without a walk around the stunning Australian Gardens!
