The design concept for this ever-popular nature play space focussed on 3 main areas – a woodland, a billabong and an adventure camp – offering an abundance of nature play opportunities alongside more traditional equipment. Despite its size and huge play scope, part of working within a Protection Zone was to ensure the playground was as unobtrusive as possible and paid tribute to the natural surrounds. Importantly, it aimed to deliver high-quality educational experiences that draw on Indigenous and European heritage and environmental and waterway values.

The woodland features a sandy, foliage-filled path with an arrangement of our ironbark climbing, balancing and stepping structures for kids to explore, climb and test their balance. The billabong area becomes a natural creek bed for play, incorporating our water play equipment including water pumps and a water table. At the heart of the playground is a custom designed wooden fort with climbing nets, suspension bridges, enclosed slide and observation tower – designed to challenge kids of multiple ages. Nearby, an active play area includes a flying fox, swing set with a toddler seat and standalone nest swing. To further encourage role play and imagination, there are examples of shelters that First Nations People would build and an area that invites kids to build their own structures using fallen sticks.

The playground was designed and manufactured by Natura’s subsidiary brand, Play Works.
