My visit here was actually my first time ever trying miniature golf and I quickly realised that it's a great activity to do with kids. The game isn't too difficult for them to master, or adapt to their skills, so you can just send them off in front of you, while you take the course a bit slower behind them.
We visited on a Sunday, after lunch, so the place was quite busy and sometimes we had to wait our turn at a hole, but the kids were never impatient. We had chosen the Camelot course and I just started telling them a bit about King Arthur.
This princess had us wondering: Guinevere or Rapunzel?
There are a few characters included on the course, from Merlin to Guinevere (though not Arthur?). There was also a strange animal that had us go home and do a search of mythical creatures (it had a serpent-like body, but a friendly, almost teddy-bear-like face). Ultimately, we decided it was either a basilisk or a figment of the artist's imagination.
Our day at Dural Putt Putt in the Gardens turned out to be a lot more memorable than I initially expected; the facilities aren't elaborate, but the garden creates a great atmosphere and the themed courses are perfect for kids.
As well as mini golf, Dural Putt Putt has a coffee shop offering drinks, cakes, pies, sausage rolls, ice-cream, snacks and more (stop here to get your clubs and balls). Plenty of seating is available under a large shelter and the place can even cater to birthday parties (I saw a few large groups of kids on my visit, possibly here for that reason). Recently I've noticed photos in the local paper of a wedding here too.
During school holidays the facility is open every day, except during the summer ones when it's closed for a few days over Christmas and New Year's. Outside the holidays, Dural Putt Putt is open Thursday to Sunday, but if you want to visit for a function, school activity etc. you can make a booking for outside these hours.
