Head across to Scarborough Beach Park this Australia Day on Thursday 26 January for a picnic under one of the shady trees by the seaside or in one of the picnic shelters.
The two playgrounds here will keep the kids entertained for hours with the choice of Pirate Place or Railway Place. Both playgrounds are fully fenced and partly shaded. There is also the Cotton Tree Forest, within the fenced play area, which is full of wonderful old cottonwood trees that offer exciting climbing opportunities for the kids.
Railway Place features shelter sheds and picnic tables, a sand-based play area with permanent sand tables and toys, a stationary train with a track running throughout the play space, a climbing net, swings, balancing equipment and more.
Whilst Pirate Place has a boat fort, sheltered area, seesaw and Cotton Tree Forest. Outside the fenced area are sheltered picnic tables and barbecues which all look over the glorious Scarborough Beach.
After a play in one or both of the playgrounds the kids can safely swim in the calm waters of Moreton Bay. When the kids are hungry cook a tasty snag or two on the electric BBQs provided in the park.
What a fabulous way to spend Australia Day!
