If your kids are the adventurous type, you might need something a bit more exciting than the local playground to keep them entertained. For something a little more out of the ordinary, try one of these incredible playgrounds in Sydney with equipment that will keep them busy for hours. With some near the North Shore and others a little further afield, they’re definitely worth the drive for a fun day out.
This colourful adventure park is a must-visit! The attractions include a giant slide, climbing tower, tunnels, nets and swings, all supported by soft-surface floors. There’s also a landscaped picnic and barbecue area, bike racks, and handball and table tennis courts. Wulaba is an Aboriginal word of the Gadigal people, meaning ‘rock wallaby’.
The largest playground in Sydney offers an amazing play space. Spread over 3 hectares, there’s water features, moving play elements, high and steep landforms and hidden and confined spaces to play in. Enjoy the double flying fox, mega-swing, tunnel slides, scramble wall, spinning play disk, Viking swing, multi-level tree house, and the largest outdoor water play facility in the State. Grown ups can enjoy a sausage sizzle on the free BBQs or enjoy a picnic, plus walk, cycle or run along the riverside walking trail.
The children’s playground features a triple metal slide, swinging bridge and swings, but nearby in the same park is the Sydney Cycle Centre with a kid’s track that has working traffic lights and road markings. There’s an on-site cafe and the setting is gorgeous green, rolling hills and lakes.
Pirrama Park is a perfect hot-weather destination, with huge fountains and water features. There’s shaded areas for hot days, a rope climbing frame, and a big sandpit. There’s also a cafe right next to the play area- bliss!
Kids will spend hours at this expansive playground with water games, climbing ropes, swings, slides, and a flying fox. There’s also sand diggers, a pump station, balance ropes and an octanet! The playground is also close to places to eat and drink and the Darling Quarter Theatre.
