Pirate Treasure Island Playground

For a day packed with swashbuckling play, head to Pirate Treasure Island Playground. Located at Palm Beach, this popular kids playground on the Gold Coast is the perfect spot for all wannabe pirates to act out their seaworthy adventures. The entire playground is pirate themed, with buried treasure, desert island caves, and circling crocodiles. There is also, of course, a pirate ship ready for your little one to step up as captain.

Faerie Park

If your kids love imaginative play, Faerie Park is an absolutely adorable picnic space that you need to check out. Less like your ordinary playground and more a whimsical imagination zone, Faerie Park is dotted with lush trees and magical features that make you feel like you’re in a fairytale. On top of the wishing well, troll bridge, a goblin cave, and toadstool houses, you’ll also find the usual playground fare of swings, slides, and play equipment.

Westfield Helensvale Playground

When you need to get some shopping done with the kids, Westfield Helensvale Playground will add a dose of fun to their day. While shopping centre playgrounds are usually a little drab, this one has put in the effort where others are lacking. Located close to the bathrooms and food court for a conveniently supervised play, your little one can explore the giant treehouse, rope canopy, log swing, spiral slide, and more.

Broadwater Parklands

For a full day of fun, make your way to Broadwater Parklands. This kids playground on the Gold Coast packs in so many activities that will put a smile on your kid’s face. Start off with a bounce on the shaded jumping pillow before you head to the playground which features all sorts of play equipment, from climbing equipment to swings, slides, and monkey bars. Move on to the pedal monorail and splash around in the shallow water park. In summer they even open a paid inflatable water park for all ages to enjoy.

Kurrawa Park All Abilities Playground

Lastly, we have an awesome playground that caters to all ages and all abilities, Kurrawa Park. This playground is specifically designed to be all-inclusive, incorporating all types of play for all children. Not only do they have accessible sand tables for wheelchair access and an epic sandcastle fort with ramp access, the park also highlights community artwork throughout.
