This is a wonderful place to take the kids. Must be the best play area for kids in Australasia. Situated in the central city it even has a mini golf opposite.

We’re been to this playground first time but we’re falling in love this place so much. We’re spending time here for 3 hours. It’s safe, convenient and easy to drive here.

Apologies for the slow reply - anything from an hour to a half day if you take a picnic. There are barbecues you can use beside the playground and great places beside the playground on the riverbank to sit.
