Where: Wongabirrie Park – Wirrabara in the mid North

Located on the banks of the Rocky River (which is great for exploring or yabbying when wet) is Wongabarrie Park up at Wirrabara. Where is that? Head to Pt Pirie and sort of turn right and you are about on the mark.

The playground is a fantastic facility for the locals and travellers alike, with toilets a large rotunda (great for parties) and BBQ areas aplenty. Right next to the town footy oval and caravan park, so if you are staying up there keep this in mind, the playground has lots of equipment for all ages and is the perfect mid-road trip break to stretch those tired little legs. A big slide, lots of climbing equipment, shade, sand play and plenty of space to run around is on offer here. A great country playground.

Check out the local artwork throughout the park and pop across the road is the Craft House, as well as the famous Julia’s Kitchen at Old Wirrabara Bakery. Well worth a visit we have been told! Oh and the silo art is absolutely incredible! Make sure you check that out on your trip.
