Nature / Park
City Park is a heritage park containing the city's botanic gardens, radio museum, gallery of wood design and furniture, and an enclosed colony of macaque monkeys. The park's monorail operates on most days and is a popular tourist attraction, taking visitors around the area's most notable landmarks. The most prominent buildings at this location are Albert Hall, which was built in 1891; a convention center; and the studios of City Park Radio. The studios are located inside a cottage that once served as the park caretakers' home, and still boast one of the oldest wisteria wines in Australia, planted in 1837.

  • No monkeys until after winter it seems, the monkey section was being refurbished. Good public toilets with unisex cubical. Interesting chess game set. Longest park bench I ever saw.. . One cafe there, but I didn't go in. It was a weekday around noon and I easily found a 1p parking spot.
  • I have always enjoyed walking around the park, mum used to take me to see the ducks and monkeys and walk up the hills to run past the big trees and roll on the grass, I now take my own kids to enjoy the beauty and shared enjoyment of being in a safe an colourful place. The public toilets and Playground with a Kids toilet mean you can stop off in the 3 Hr parking that surrounds it to take a time out when you've been busy in town. Many photo opportunities and a well maintained range of gardens, plants and trees to see. The kids playground end has a gate but it is not an enclosed area. A car train is available to ride on for a small fee most days.
  • A picturesque setting, where I can imagine myself eating tuna sandwiches with my future husband of 50 years and slow dancing to an Ed Sheeran song in the gazebo at dusk
  • Beautiful Autumn trees. Japanese monkey display and manicured gardens.
  • So relaxing and a great way to keep the kids happy if your filling in time. Beautiful spot for photos.
