Pinwheel Island Kids Cafe


Macgregor’s Pinwheel Island Kids Cafe is a fabulously bright and cheery space, boasting great food and super-fun play options.  

Best suited to kids under seven (although older siblings are welcome), Pinwheel Island is a dream come true for any fun-loving kid.

For the under 2s, there’s a fully-fenced zone featuring a mini ball pit, seesaw rockers and a soft climbing obstacle for kids to clamber up and through.

Elsewhere you'll find Pinwheel Town – a mini township, complete with a cafe, bakery, and cute little cars to cruise around the tiny roadways. Kids can even fill up at the fuel pump or take a spin through the car wash.

The main play area – known as Pinwheel Island – will delight older kids with its series of climbing obstacles, nets, rollers and slides. There’s also a trampoline and an interactive ball pit where kids are encouraged to throw balls at images as they’re projected on the wall.

Impressive play equipment aside, Pinwheel Island also holds plenty of appeal for adults. While the kids play, carers can pull up a comfy chair at one of the many tables and enjoy a coffee and snack in relative kid-free peace.
