Ngulli Bui Park
Published May 27th 2018
A leafy park and playground on the Gold Coast
Ngulli Bui Park is a recreation reserve located on Olsen Avenue, a short distance from Harbour Town Shopping Centre.
The park is set over an area of bushland of approximately 33,000 mē, and is accessible along Olsen Avenue, with additional access points at Serene Court and Tamara Street.
The southern end of Ngulli Bui Park
The park contains a combination of trees, plants, shrubs and grass areas.

The park features grass areas, trees and shrubs, plus a number of facilities including picnic tables, a small playground and concrete basketball area.
The concrete basketball area
The playground is probably best suited for younger children and contains:
A swing set with standard swing and toddler swing
A plastic fort set over sand
The swings at Ngulli Bui Park
The play equipment at Ngulli Bui Park
The view looking across the park towards Olsen Avenue
One of the things that was noticeable while walking through the park was the traffic noise, as the park is right next to Olsen Avenue, and less than 200 metres from Gold Coast Highway.
However, for those who don't mind the noise, the park has a definite advantage of being in close proximity to the shopping centre and public transport.
Overall, this park would be perfect for dog walking, short walks, or those looking for somewhere to sit outdoors and enjoy some fish and chips or a picnic lunch.
The basketball area is also a nice feature and makes this park an attractive option for children who prefer basketball to playground equipment.
If you're looking for a playground with more play equipment or a park that's quieter and located away from the busy roads, there are a couple of good options nearby, including:
Cos Zantiotis Park
(less than 500m away)
Nick Pavlis Park
(just over 1km away)
Norm Rix Park
(approximately 1.5km away)
There are no toilets located at the park. The nearest toilets are located at:
Harbour Town Shopping Centre (500m)
Hungry Jacks (300m)
Cos Zantiotis Fields (300m)
The closest shops are located just a few hundred metres north along Olsen Avenue.
Harbour Town Shopping Centre
is located 500m away
There is a Woolworths Caltex store located 200m away
There are also a number of takeaway food outlets nearby
The park is unfenced and is next to a very busy road.
The trees provide some shade, however, the park does not have any artificial shade or shelter.
