    Almost makes me wish I had kids again.... But only Almost:biglaugh:. But you are correct about the playgrounds being clean and vandalism free, Where I live a man with a van turns up every morning around 6am and runs a high pressure hose over the Kids play area and the free BBQ's, they are always spotless.

    We found it hard to explore areas with the kids when we first arrived as they get soo bored sat in the car, finding a good playground to spend an hour or so at to break the exploring up worked for us, so hopefully it will for others.
    The problem with QLD is there are too many nice parks and playareas to visit, it will take us years to get around them all,lol...

    It just keep's getting better the more I hear :) I'll be over in just under 5 weeks (as soon as I get off this ship) and I have got 2 kids. Delilah 6 and Sid 2 and they both love the park. I think I am more excited about the outdoor life they're gonna get more than anything

    We have Muddys Playground on Cairns Esplanade

    A popular meeting spot for young families, "Muddy's" is a modern, fun, safe playground and parkland. It incorporates active, passive, interactive and educational facilities with a combination of play equipment and custom designed equipment. Designed and situated such that various age groups have a separate and unique play area with the level of challenge in each area relating to the age group.​
    Themed "Life in Trinity Bay" the playground includes water play areas with:​
    • Water channels and hand pumps
    • Water gates, rain shelters and jumping water jets
    • "Muddy" the mud skipper sculpture
    Other play areas include:​
    • Flying fox, sound chimes, track ride, rope bridge, slides, play houses, story telling areas, see- saw, trick track and puzzle games
    Additionally, "Muddy's" provides BBQ & Picnic facilities (Curlew BBQ is available for private hire), an events lawn to accommodate visiting attractions as well as tired children and an on-site cafe, "Skippers" that provides delicious light meals and refreshments. Muddy's is somewhere locals and visitors can take their children to play and enjoy the benefits of the waterfront.​
    In the interests of public safety, Security Officers and CCTV cameras are monitoring the area at all times.​
    Hours of operation are 9am - 7pm throughout the year. A section of Muddy's is closed for cleaning on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 9am - 11am​
