Just across the road from the stunning Ballarat Botanic Gardens is the ever impressive Lake Wendouree Adventure Playground.

We love this place for sooo many reasons: the flying fox ride, the maze, the swings plus lots of good little pathways for scootering around. And get this; there's a disabled swing too plus loads of nooks and crannies to make any kid deliriously happy. Needless to say, it’s free. The playground is very well constructed and will give a lot to the imagination.




Just be mindful this playground is only partly fenced and is close to a main road and the lake.

Make a day of it, pack a picnic, hop on the tourist tram, cruise around the lake (feel the burn as you push the pram around 6km) and let the kids run amok!


  • Bring a jacket - you are next to water afterall!
  • Picnic is a given. Or there's BBQ's right next to the playground.
  • Be sure to pay a visit to the Ballarat Botanic Gardens across the street. They're stunning in any season!
