Dorrington Park, Ashgrove

Welcome to the Enchanted Forest in Dorrington Park! This playground comes complete with musical toadstools and fantastical spiderwebs to climb. What an adventure! There are some of the best climbing trees in Brisbane here too!

The park is well equipped with toilets, undercover areas and parking so when those fairies are exhausted it’s not going to be too far to fly back to the car.

Kumbartcho is a Flora and Fauna Sanctuary in Eaton’s Hill, Brisbane incorporating walking tracks, a public park, BBQ and playground, all of which are open between 7am and 7pm to the public free of charge.

There is a playground that is  available between dawn and dusk all year round.  It is fenced on three sides with child-proof gates and is bounded by the Sanctuary on the remaining side.  There is a playhouse as well as a range of covered playground equipment. It also has toilets, a grassed play area and a covered eating area with a free electric BBQ.

Within the sanctuary is a well maintained fairy garden that children can walk around to see some of the best fairies in Brisbane. If you go a little further you will come to Bunya Crossing Reserve Swimming Hole.
