The Harbour Playground is a fully fenced, inclusive play space located on the Secret Harbour foreshore designed for all ages, all abilities and all levels of adventure.
The ocean-themed Harbour Playground is dominated by a soft fall giant octopus where climbing up the brightly coloured tentacles is one of the many ways to reach the top!
Have a climb around and over the tunnel that leads you into the sea cave for more ocean adventures!
Challenge yourself and friends on the seaweed climbing ropes that hang from top to bottom of the sea cave.
Or climb the whirlpool net – another fast, fun & challenging way to reach the upper level.
The soft floor matting allows easy access for prams, walkers & wheelchairs and also includes a wheelchair accessible roundabout that was very popular with all the kids.
There are so many ways to reach the top … the whirlpool net, climb the tentacles, pull yourself up the hill with the climbing ropes or along the gentle sloping wheel friendly ramp pathway.
The top gives you a fantastic view of the entire park, make it a little easier to find your friends unless they’re hiding below you in the sea cave!
At the top of Harbour Playground, there is an enclosed twisty slide that takes you down into the sea cave and there are 2 more gentle open slides on the hill alongside the mountain climbing ropes.
While you are at the top you can transform into Miriam Mermaid or Diver Dan.
One of my girls’ favourite equipment at Harbour Playground was the Inclusive Flying Fox. They could both go on it and move up & down with their feet or have me push them along. It was lots of fun and something we hadn’t come across before.
Just in front of the giant octopus, you will find the sand play equipment, with the soft matting leading up to the sand tables allowing wheelchair friendly access.
The section for the younger kids/toddlers includes a double slide that the kids access by climbing the ladder or going up the hill. There are also lots of fantastic balancing balls of differing heights.
You’ll also find the always popular birdnest swing, spinning pods and rocking horses.
The unique shape and different bar heights of the monkey bars provide an interesting challenge and a few options for how you go around.
The Harbour Playground is fully enclosed with self-closing child-proof gates at various points along the outside.
Public toilets are in the Secret Harbour Surfclub building next to the gym and are unlocked 7 days a week. Snacks and coffee are available from the Secrets Surg Kiosk that is open Mon-Fri 9am till 12pm and weekends 8am till 12pm.
The Harbour Playground is bright, colourful, big and lots of fun. With the toilets, free BBQ facilities and a huge grass area, it would be easy to spend the day.
There are an undercover table and chairs close to the free gas BBQs. There are drinking fountains and bench seating throughout the playground as well and lots of grass shaded by large palm trees and as the new trees grow the shade will be fantastic.
