There’s nature play at every turn with a pumped water play area that runs through the playground and the stones that step out into the bush.

There’s also a sandpit for little fingers to sift through, leaves to collect and lots of bark to toddle, stomp and canter across.

For older kids, the QR code discovery trails are a terrifically techie way to interact with the space and smartphones come into play here, scanning hidden codes. Meanwhile, tiny tots will be happy to look and not scan as they find silvery treasures resting on rocks.

Littlies will also be tickled yellow by the colourful timber maze, where hiding from Mummy becomes an art form!

Plus, there are oodles of opportunities to climb, swing, slide, rock and spin on the play equipment.

Which brings us to the hamster wheel!

Your school kid will be singing, “spin me right round, Mum, right round like a record, Mum…” and this thing is definitely a hit with the older crowd.
