I work for a travel wholesaler on Sydney's north shore and love photography, festivals & events, and travel, of course. My new passion is writing and I hope to inspire others. Visit my blog at www.travelwithirenke.blogspot.com
Bungarribee is a suburb of the city of Blacktown and part of the Western Sydney Parklands that run from just north of Blacktown through Fairfield to Liverpool. Bungarribee Park is a newly-opened super park in these parklands with a state-of-the-art playground that completes Phase 2 of a bigger project.
You are invited to this free family-friendly event in the park to test out all that is on offer, including a 14 metre high tower, a 50 metre long flying fox, giant swings, a water play area, new shelters and barbecues. Further plans in the next phase of the project include a gum tree forest and a cafe.
With the brunch on 25th March from 8am to noon, the kids will be kept occupied with art and craft workshops, where they can make free sun catchers. Fun games and sporting activities by Go4Fun are also on the agenda along with meeting local sporting identities. Keepers from Sydney Zoo will introduce some of their animals, including a snake, possum, alligator, lizard and a Tawny Frogmouth.
Additionally, watch the aerial drone displays and listen to talks from park rangers and Indigenous elders that will highlight the history and development of this fascinating site. Entertainment includes roving musicians, such as the New Orleans band.
You can BYO brunch and have a picnic, use the barbecues or treat yourself to delicious brunch-style snacks, such as bacon and egg rolls, croissants and sweet crepes with coffee and other drinks from popular food vans.
The surrounding wide open spaces are perfect for walking, running and cycling. Bring your dog too as there is a large off-leash area.
Plenty of free parking exists in this park that is set to become a major tourism destination and complement other attractions in the area, such as Wet 'n' Wild and Sydney Motorsport Park.
So have a great morning out in the sunshine at Bungarribee Park - a place for all to enjoy, play, learn and appreciate the environment.
