Maylands Waterland is a water play paradise, with lots of shallow pools and play features and it's perfect for under 5's. For only a few dollars entry per person, Maylands Waterland is a great value family day out, particularly for those with younger children. There are several pools of water varying in depth. With two splash pads -
This one is under shade and has a little spray in the middle, the other is just a very shallow area of water (right of photo below also shaded)
This pool is only 20cm deep
This pool is 30cm deep and is alongside a little playground which is also near the 20cm deep pool
This is the only pool without shade over it, but at mostly 60cm deep, with some sections 70cm deep, the kids had a ball playing chasey with each other - even the bigger kids had lots of fun in this pool!
There is also a great little toddler & crawler shaded playground and other shaded play features for some fun out of the water.
Mini golf is only $3.70 per player in addition to your admission fee - you can hold onto your golf club and golf ball all day
There are 14 small picnic shelters and lots of grassed naturally shaded areas so you wont have too much trouble finding a nice spot to set up for the day. There are also 3 free to use BBQ's.
There is a kiosk there but it is limited to drinks, icecreams and few hot food items, like toasted cheese sandwiches - so you may want to bring your own food and drink if you plan to spend some time here.
The winding river with little waterfall at the end was very popular with my 3yo too, he loved running up and down it over and over again
Maylands Waterland is a great value day out for young families. If you only have older kids it probably wont entertain them, however the older kids in our group enjoyed having races and playing chasey in the shallower pools with the younger ones - and my 7yo certainly loved the mini golf too!
