Backyard to Bush playground

Over at Backyard to Bush we’ve commenced some exciting renovations to the playground and water play area just outside the barn.

The new B2B playground will have lots of new play elements for kids to explore including netted tunnels, bridges and towers, farm animal sculptures, new climbing structures and slides and an interactive water play area. 

For the adults there will be more seating plus an open area for parents and carers to enjoy the playground with their children.

While this area of the Backyard to bush will be closed for the next five months, families can still enjoy an amazing adventure at the Backyard to Bush House, on the farm, and in the bush area. If you haven’t been to the Farm Yard Feed at 2pm or the 3pm Spider Talk, don’t miss these next time you’re at the Zoo.
