* Adventure & Nature Play * Flying Fox * BBQs * Picnic Tables * Water Fountain * No Toilets
Sunset Hill Park located in the Golden Bay estate offers a mixture of nature-based and traditional play equipment, as well as a look-out over the ocean.
One of the main features of the park is a double flying fox. The large bucket seat with a harness is perfect for the younger kids who often miss out on getting a go on the flying fox or for kids with disabilities. There isn’t a built up landing at the start of the flying fox, so it can be a bit tricky getting into the seats without help.
Next to the flying fox is a slide that looks like something out of a Dr Seuss book – it’s a little bit whacky!
Hidden off behind the slide are some rope-based play structures. Being under the canopy of the bushes and trees really give this area a sense of adventure, and is signposted as the “Tribal Village”
The park also has a sandpit with a piece of sand-play equipment and three large brightly painted tyres. Next to this is a basket swing.
Two shaded picnic tables with a barbecue are available right next to the play equipment.
are several paths towards the back of the park that lead up to the lookout
The lookout area has several picnic tables with umbrellas as well as some stools to sit on to enjoy the view. I love that everything in the park is sign posted; it means that the hidden things (like the lookout and rope area) aren’t missed out on.There are no toilets here however the Golden Bay Village shops are only a short drive away.
Sunset Hill Park is a great little park which will be even better once all the construction is completed around it. If you want to check out a couple of other parks while you are in the area head to Colour Block Park and Orangutan Park.
