Blue Gum Hills Regional Park provides a delightful day out for Newcastle residents and visitors. In a protected bushland setting, your family and friends can enjoy barbecue areas, play equipment, a maze and plenty of green space to refresh the soul.
The playground features a range of inclusive and accessible play equipment designed to accommodate children with diverse needs. If you’re feeling active after lunch you can play cricket, go bike riding down one of the many trails or enjoy one of the easy-access walking tracks to check out the mining heritage of the park. As this is a dog-friendly park, you can take your dog for a walk, as long as they’re on a leash.
Don’t miss the TreeTop Adventure Park if you feel like getting right up into the forest canopy.
