Woodland Picnic Area
Please note: As at Friday 20 June, the playground in the Woodland Picnic Area is temporarily closed for unscheduled maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The Woodland Picnic Area is a fantastic bushland space for families and community groups. The Picnic Area is approx 400 metres from the car park and includes large open grasslands for ball games, a bicycle track, free barbecue facilities and a children’s playground.
At the moment there are limited barbecue facilities available at Woodland Picnic Area due to maintenance.
To help you carry your picnic basket to the Woodland Picnic Area, a free trolley is now available at the Visitor Centre subject to availability. A refundable deposit is required.
