Giant gamesSick of the lounge room Olympics with the kids? No worries! At Discovery Parks, the great outdoors is your new playground. Whether it's a friendly (or ultra-competitive) game of basketball or tennis, a putting contest on the mini-golf course, or a battle of wits over giant chess, you won't be hearing ‘I’m bored’ here. And hey, forgot the kids' bikes for the BMX pump tracks? All good, we’ve got go-karts to keep that adrenaline pumping (and also burn some energy).

Located near gorgeous beaches, serene lakes, and cruising rivers, our parks offer families the chance to swim, kayak, jump on water trampolines, splash around and unwind by the water, all while the parents can have some much-needed R&R time.

Playground adventurers, assemble!

Robe PlaygroundOur playgrounds are basically mini-adventure lands with all the swings, slides, and climbing structures you could dream of. Parents, don’t stress; it’s a safe space to let your little adventurers roam before the bedtime countdown.

Get roastin’ -  Campfire Sessions

Camp fireC'mon, who doesn't love a good ol’ campfire? Either bring your own or feel free to use the communal fire pits. Whether it's roasting marshmallows, telling taller-than-tall tales, or just enjoying that warm glow, campfire nights are where friendships spark. Just check if your park is flame-friendly before lighting up and keep an eye out for campfire events during the holidays.
