Karawatha Forest

Park

Karawatha Forest Park boasts Queensland's first nature play space and Discovery Centre, Brisbane City Council's only environment education centre on the southside.  

While you won't find swings or slides here, children of all ages will discover just how far their imagination can go. Nestled in a beautiful bush setting, this nature inspired playground features a water play area with old-fashioned hand pump, dry creek bed crossed by boardwalk or wooden beam and climbing structures like logs and rocks.

Karawatha Forest Park

Visit the Discovery Centre, both educational and entertaining, with interactive floor projection of a frog habitat, night-time audio visual experience room and a virtual reality experience which gives you a bird's eye view of Karawatha Forest. The centre is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9-4 and entry is free.

Afterwards, enjoy a picnic on the sprawling lawn or nab a picnic table near the play area. Free electric barbecues and toilets are located here and at the Discovery Centre's sheltered picnic area.

If the kids still have energy to burn, take them on a bushwalk in Karawatha Forest with walking tracks ranging from 20 minutes to 1 hour. Trail maps are available at the Discovery Centre.
