Balance Ropes

Like a circus tightrope walker, test your skill on the balance ropes, which are a first for any Australian playground! See how fast you can safely complete the 18.7m-long course and challenge your friends to better it!

The Big Slide

This is the largest slide in the Darling Quarter playground, and it’s not for the faint-hearted! At over 3-metres high, with a length of 8 metres, you can test your bravery alongside your mates!

The Flying Fox

Up the ramp, count to three, and then whizz away through a grove of trees in a rush of air! What do you mean your local playground doesn’t have a 21-metre long flying fox?!

The Giant Ring

An exhilarating multi-dimensional swing experience for you and your friends! Swing side to side, up and down, or spin around in a circle. There’s room for everyone, so no big lineups!

Jumbo Swings

If you love to reach for the stars, the Jumbo Swing is waiting for you! And if you’ve ever yelled “Higher, higher!” on a regular swing, this one will take your breath away as you launch into orbit!

The Octanet

This is where you’ll find Darling Quarter playground’s highest point, and the perfect conquest for any budding explorers! 83 square metres of rope net rises over 10 metres into the air, creating an awesome challenge for kids of all ages. Be the first to climb and tell everyone else about the view!

Pump Station

Sometimes the simplest things are the best, especially in the sunshine! Make a splash and cool down with Darling Quarter’s 26 water jets and an exciting range of water patterns.

Sand Diggers

Digging a hole and then filling it up again is so satisfying! Just like the real thing, our two Sand Diggers can pick up and move sand around the huge sand pit area, nestled amongst gorgeous palm trees. The perfect way to occupy busy builders in the making!

Shade Zone

Play it cool and relax in the shade of one of Darling Quarter’s dedicated shaded areas. It makes the perfect spot for a picnic lunch with your BFFs, and it’s close to the Water Screw for a quick chill out!

Slide Hill

Gravity reigns supreme on our custom-designed hill slides. Race to the top via the specially made rubber mounds, and then launch down the safe, slippery surface for hours of fun and laughs.

The Supanova

Do you have the skill to master the Supernova? It’s the ultimate test of balance and strength! Lots of spinning parts means there’s room for lots of kids. It’s whirly fun for all ages.

The Swings

We’ve taken this playground classic and given it a modern twist! There are four big kids’ swings, and two for the little ones, so whether you swing on your own or get a push, there’s plenty of room for everyone in their quest to try and touch the sky!

Tangled Web

Perfect for younger kids, this tangled web is ready to test your climbing ability. There’s over 42 square metres of rope netting, but be careful not to get caught!

The Water Scoop

Round and round! Faster and faster! How much water can you get splashing around in the Water Scoop? If it’s a hot day, why not splash your friends, your folks, or yourself? They’ll probably thank you for it!

Water Screw

Science comes to life! Kids will marvel as the water cascades from the Archimedes water screw. He was the bloke who designed the water pump 2,000 years ago, but even he would be amazed at this one!

Water Squirts

Become the ‘Water Master’ as you decide the ebb and flow of the Darling Quarter Water Works. Control the dam via seven water switches, five water gates, a water wheel and an Archimedes water screw. The power will flow through you!
