Set on Pretty Beach waterfront, just a 10-minute walk from Wagstaffe ferry terminal and General Store, is Turo Reserve playground. A hit with kids, the pirate ship themed play equipment offers tons for the imagination to run wild.

Children will clamber aboard to the top of the steps where they’ll shout “ahoy there me hearties!” before sliding down the brightly coloured slippery dip. The steps up to the slide are quite steep so smaller children taking on the challenge will need help.

Younger children will love a play on the swings which feature a bucket swing as well as a backless swing.

There’s also tons of space to kick a ball in the adjacent sports field as well as netball hoops, soccer goals and tennis courts which will keep active tweens happy. The BBQs and undercover picnic seating also make this a great location for birthday parties.
