Coffee, slides & flying fox
Howitt Park is located on the outskirts of Bairnsdale, just before you cross the bridge heading towards Sale.

Huge wiggly slides to Slip down

The day we visited here, it had been really hot and dry and it was a welcome relief to find a lovely place to rest under shady trees and even better, by the river. There is a small boat ramp where you can launch a small boat or take in a spot of fishing.

Peaceful places to relax and recharge

The historic bridge is fun to walk across and once you are refreshed and relaxed, there is a lovely playground for the children to burn off some steam. Even for the older children there is a terrific long slide and a flying fox which they will enjoy.

There are picnic tables and a barbecue or if you have not bought any supplies with you, there is a small cafe near the playground. For the little ones, there are the usual smaller toys in the playground.

A fun playground for the all aged children

This slide is really fun as it is extremely long, it is also in several levels, so as the children (or you if you like) slide down they go down different levels, each one with a small window to look out.

The flying fox was a big highlight even for the older children

If you prefer things more historical, there is an ancient aboriginal tree that has the dugout canoe cut from it and you can take an aboriginal nature walk.

Great place for a rest, relax, refuel and fun for the children.

270 km from Melbourne heading towards Lakes Entrance and the coast.
