KID STUFF // Southern Highlands Playgrounds

sponsored by Explorers Learning Academy

Handy information for parents and carers about raising kids in the Southern Highlands, kindly brought to you by Explorers Learning Academy, specialising in play and early childhood education.

We love that there are so many awesome playgrounds dotted in amongst the towns and villages of the Southern Highlands. Here’s some of our (and when we say our, we mean our kids) favourites! 

Berrima Market Place // Old Hume Highway, Berrima
Love the flying fox here! 

Mirren Nunguna Gulla Park // 60 Renwick Drive, Renwick
Loads of space and plenty of places for parents to sit.

David Woods Playing Fields // Warby Street, East Bowral
There is a big climbing tepee in the middle that keeps kids busy. 

Bundanoon Oval // 70 Erith Street, Bundanoon
This playground has a lovely, relaxing view over the oval. Perfect for sipping a takeaway coffee while the kids play. 

Southern Highlands Botanic Gardens // 1 Old South Head Road, Bowral
Brand new, fenced playground! Open from 9am-5pm - there's also a coffee van so parents can get their caffeine fix too.

Boronia Park // 44 Stanley Street, Hill Top
Good old-fashioned swings are there! And if you want to take a footy to kick around, the soccer fields are right next door. 

Glebe Park // 6 St Jude Street, Bowral
This is where the Mary Poppins statue is!

Lake Alexandra Reserve // Cnr Pioneer and Queen Streets, Mittagong
Always an abundance of wildlife to keep the kids distracted if the playground is too busy. 

Acacia Park // Merrett Drive, Moss Vale
Plenty of play equipment and lots of flat grassed land to run around on.
