All Abilities Playground

Our All Abilities Playground makes a visit to the Botanic Garden extra fun for 2 – 12 year olds! Carers should provide supervision for small children at all times.

Located near our Murphys Avenue entrance, this space includes swings, a sandpit, slippery dip, climbing net, viewing platform and a maze.

You'll also find an edible herb garden along the southern wall near our popular picnic and BBQ areas. Feel free to help yourself to seasonal delights like rosemary, chives, basil, parsley and mint - all provided for your enjoyment.
