  • Fantastic treehouse design playground to keep children happily eganges in climbing and balancing activities. Partially lit by night it becomes quite spooky but still friendly for active kids and teens...  read more »
  • A bit hard to find (for us). Kids enjoyed climbing around and exploring. A little shore-side cafe next to the playground, and we enjoyed cold beverages after playing at the park. 
  • Well thought out children playground based around a giant fig tree. Fantastic adventures to be had here for the little, plenty of shade from the harsh tropical sun too. There is a coffee stop nearby w...  read more »
  • The whole area is good for families with the Fig Tree Play Ground, Cruise Ship Terminal, gardens, lawns, extensive hardwood decks and views across Trinity Inlet to numerous mountains. Our 6-year-old daughter alternated between playing in the Fig Tree Treehouse and riding around it on her Razor scooter. The town centre is 300 metres away and has plenty of food and drink choices for an easy picnic lunch. The Wharf One Cafe offers a more up tempo space. It allows adults to chat for hours and watch the kids playing.
  • Pretty much perfect for kids and parents. Tunnels, beautiful timber walkways and decks, climbing nets, secret passages - all set within a massive fig tree on the Esplanade. Shady places for parents to sit and keep an eye on little ones. A stone's throw from the CBD and major hotels like Hilton, Pullman Cairns International, Pullman Reef Hotel, Jack and Newell Apartments, Piermonde Apartments and Park Regis (to name a handful). Even better, it is set right next to Wharf One Cafe to keep everyone energised!
  • Good playground for independent players. Some of the low boughs can be a little hazardous to adults.
  • A great play area for children that doesn't rely on the standard playground equipment of a slide and some swings.
  • Great old school play area for the kids, they can ever climb the trees! Right next to wharf one too.
