Smaller than Dreamworld, but just as much fun
On my recent trip to Nelson Bay with my 3 youngest girls, we ventured to Toboggan Hill Park. I would have to say I was a little sceptical at first, but I was pleasantly surprised!

Hot Ice Skating


As well as the titled toboggan ride, the park offers indoor rock climbing, mini golf, jumping castle, tractor train, giant maze, hot ice skating and more. Due to safety reasons, children under 8 must ride the toboggan with an adult.

Indoor Rock Climbing


I decided not to ride the toboggan, however, I was able to give my entry pass to my daughter and she was able to use both tickets for 2 activities.

The park is well laid out and there is a viewing area that is excellent for photos and video opportunities as the riders on the toboggans come down the hill.

My girls absolutely loved it, and since our visit they have constantly been asking when they can go back!
