  • Geraldton is a great holiday destination for families with kids of all ages, and it’s also a great stop off point to grab a quick bite to eat and a leg stretch if you’re travelling further up North.

    Geraldton Foreshore Playground

    The Town Foreshore super playground is located directly outside the Geraldton Yacht Club overlooking Geraldton bay and is more suited to kids aged 4+.

    The main attraction is the Sky Walk, a huge roped bridge structure with connecting turrets and a long red slide that is 6 metres at it’s highest point. Plenty of climbing is involved to get up to the rope bridge which my 5-year-old managed quite easily.

    Alongside the rope bridge are two birds nest swings, great for toddlers to lay down on or groups of kids standing around the edge. These are also swings for less able bodied kids and adults.

    Two other interesting and relatively new pieces of play equipment to our parks are the NEOS games.  The games involves you listening to the voice instructions and watching the lights on various posts and pressing the right buttons in a specific order. A bit like “Simon Says”. These are great fun to watch the kids running from one post to the next and several kids can play at once.

    My kids had great fun on the liberty Variety Roundabout, suitable for wheelchairs and able bodied kids to ride together.  The rock climbing boulder is another new piece of equipment I’ve not seen before.

    A table tennis table and table soccer are another two excellent features to this park. Not sure where you get the bats from for the table tennis though? For older kids there’s also a basketball court.

    There’s plenty of seating options around the playground but little shade, however you can throw down a picnic blanket a little further away on the grassed area where there are some trees for shade.  We saw lots of families having a picnic around this area as there are water fountains and a big toilet block right next to the playground. The toilet facilities include an adult change-table and a hoist.
