Spend a day of family fun at St Kilda Adventure Playground, covering over 4 hectares (10 acres) along the seafront. This popular family attraction features a reconstruction of a shipwreck, wooden castles, huge slides, zip lines, and lots of toys and games. Opened in 1982 and funded through community fundraising, the playground provides recreational programs to disadvantaged kids living in the area. Often cited as one of the state’s finest adventure parks, the playground has gone through a number of improvements and upgrades, including the addition of a set of play equipment shaped like a submarine, as well as a small maze, designed specifically to be enjoyed by younger children.

  • Great playground in the heart of St Kilda. Worth the visit during their opening hours. Nice community feel and lots of things for all ages. The are some climbing things that little people can't access yet as well as some smaller climbing frame type experiences for the little ones. There are also opportunities for some games on the ball court. A half pipe provides great opportunity for climbing and sliding. It's got a great character. We'll be back!
  • We adored this place when we last visited from Sydney, and we adored it now. The staff were all so friendly and welcoming, especially Ingrid. My three kids had a ball, making friends with lovely local kids, while I got to enjoy a cuppa. Every suburb should have a place like this. Only one criticism - bring back the flying fox and go kart! I would hate to see all the risky elements removed, as it is precisely they that make playgrounds fun and are so good for the brain development of children.
  • I spent a huge amount of time here as a kid in the late 80's and coming back today, much of the rustic charm remains. Strongly reconmend this park. Staff are amazing and kids are encouraged to do self imaginative play
  • Amazing community space! Only downside is really erratic opening hours. Always call ahead, and if no one answers, take it as closed... even if the message states it’s open (as it is not updated if closed). Parking also an issue... ride a bike!
  • Awesome place for kids. It's nicely done with different playing areas that would keep kids of all ages engaged.
