Take a trip out to Blue Gum Hills Regional Park at Minmi / Fletcher. This is a lovely large bushland park and features a unique playground reflecting the history of the area with a mining theme.
This regional park is ideal for those looking more for a natural park.
Instead of the usual playground equipment, there’s instead a unique playground that reflects the history of the area with a mining theme.
There’s a settler’s house, tunnel and manual conveyer belt with rocks to move.
There’s also a maze with an overlooking observation deck so you can watch your kids run around and get lost!
If you feel like walking, there are walking tracks throughout the park including the easy 2.5km Heritage Walking Track which takes you past coal mining infrastructure.
With loads of free BBQs, picnic shelters, walking tracks and tons of grass, it’s perfect for a family outing or gathering such as birthday party. Just be sure to take mosquito spray in summer as the mosquitoes can be bad.
Within the park is the Treetop Adventure Park, an adventure park for kids and adults in which participants use a network of rope bridges and flying foxes to move from one tree to another.
