Gibirrngaan (Black Snake) Park, Maudsland

Set unassumingly inside the Huntington Estates at Maudsland, this nature inspired playground is one of our favourites on the Gold Coast! Gibirrngaan Park (Black Snake Park) has a contemporary dreamtime theme, and is filled with play pieces for kids of all ages.

Younger kids will be in their element as they balance along the giant Red Bellied Black snake, dig for dinosaur fossils or explore the playhouse with slide, shop front, and talking teletube. Older kids can climb the net to the wooden birdsnest for views across the park, and then race down the mega slide! Little explorers will love the dry creek bed and giant snake eggs, and the giant ring swing lets both kids and parents get in on the action!

If all of this isn’t enough to keep the kids happy, the bike race track is sure to please the pickiest! Partially fenced, kids can easily race around the twists and turns, and up and down the hills. Scattered around the park are plenty of seats for parents to watch from, and two covered picnic shelters making it a great spot for a picnic. Unfortunately there are no toilets on site.

We played here for two hours, and could have easily stayed longer if the kids weren’t tired! With so much shade and lots of areas to explore you will definitely want to spend plenty of time here.
