INSIDE: Roam the Gnome’s Guide to Kambah Adventure Playground.

A boulder-style rock climbing wall was the first thing Jack spotted as he raced toward this playground and for the next 45 minutes, he stayed put right there. 

Climbing up, around, and side-to-side, the challenge of finding foot holds and hand grips had him deeply engrossed in physical play until he was worn out.

That’s the best kind of playground.

And this one can be found in Canberra.

Yes, pop Kambah Adventure Playground on your “Canberra for Kids” bucket list.

It’s worth a detour.

Canberra Playground at Kambah Park for little ones

Preschoolers can:

  • race each other down the dual slippery slide
  • scale up and down step ladders
  • ride the spider web swing, or
  • spend time clambering across the bouldering wall like Jack.

Kambah Park has an all-abilities swing on site too, another reason it’s the best in the area.
