A lovely little playground.
Oct. 2019
This is a lovely little playground, which is excellent for families with kids, looking to take some time off from strolling the waterfront.

Great park for the kids
Dec. 2019 • Family
Great park for the kids to wear themselves out. Plenty of wooden walkways, slides, stairs and other climbing apparatus. Right next door to a cafe and for the adults a brewery.

Great 15-60 minute activity for children
Sep. 2019
The Figtree Playground is right downtown Cairns. An entire play area has been built in and around this giant tree with many aerial roots (see my picture and others). This is a delightful playground that is perfect for children ages 4-14. Visiting the playground could be a good filler between other activities, or a place to spend some energy when the children need to run.
The playground is surrounded by lawn on one side, and a pier with coffee shops and such on the other side. There are no tickets, no staff, no reservations. Just show up and have fun.

Different park

My daughter likes the tree house. She enjoyed climbing up through the branches, and it is good that the tree provides almost complete shade. Was ideally located almost next door to our hotel.

Good fun

3 year old daughter loved it.
Some of the equipment was a bit big for her but she will grow into it.

The kids spent numerous hours here over several days climbing over the fort in the tree. I now remember exactly how awesome some of the simple pleasures of being a kid are when you can have this much fun

The shapes and age of this fig must be old as host tree has well gone. enjoy the space and views with the light filtering through.

Novel playground with cafe nearby
Sep. 2018 • Family
The Figtree playground is exactly how it sounds - it's literally built in and around a massive fig tree.
There's climbing elements, slides, a cool tunnel and lots of twists and turns in the boardwalks that wind through the tree limbs.
The playground uses a lot of recycled materials - wooden benches, massive ropes - salvaged from the redevelopment of the ports area.
There's a reasonable cafe quite close but not close enough that you can sit with a coffee and watch the kids.
And there's electric bbqs and picnic seats etc making it a great place for an excursion or kids party.
Public toilets are next to the cafe and there's plenty of parking (paid) as well.
Last time we were there a few of the play elements were broken and therefore cordoned off.
