HOT: Lake Wendouree Adventure Playground, Ballarat
Lake Wendouree is a favourite destination for Ballarat families, with its gorgeous gardens and lakeside paths for walking and cycling.
There are numeous playgrounds dotted around the perimeter of the lake, the largest and most exciting being the adventure playground.
Like Albert Park Adventure Playground, Phoenix Park Adventure Playground and Victory Park in Melbourne, the Lake Wendouree Adventure Playground was built by members of the local community in the 90s.
The playground is a thrilling combination of wooden towers and turrets, twisting pathways for hide and seek, a flying fox, rope climbs, monkey bars and swing sets. Other standard playground equipment is available, such as noughts and crosses, a sandpit and slides.
For imaginative play there is a black swan boat, a steamboat ferry, a wooden teepee and a train engine, complete with Lake Wendouree ticket office!

Note the layout of the playground means that it sightlines are often obscured. The playground is far away from the lake to not be a problem and though it is close to a road it is quiet with calm traffic generally.
The playground is surrounded by enormous trees but is not shaded other than by the structures themselves.
Lake Wendouree is a must-visit for any Ballarat local or visitor and the adventure playground is very close to the Indigenous Playground (on Windmill Drive) and the Ballarat Botanical Gardens, making it a whole day adventure.
