This spectacular park has all you need to spend a day in the beautiful outdoors. Expansive gardens to explore and discover, a lovely lake to wander around, and a large super fun playground and bbq area to hang out in the rest of the time.  Whenever Mamma is in this fantastic town we always find our way back here and spend at least a few hours.  The playground is large and sits under a huge majestic oak tree. It has the usual favourites plus lots of bridges, stumps to balance and jump across and lots more. All seasons are beautiful here with the flora doing its magical thing and reinventing itself with the changing weather.

Mamma's special mention: the Victorian Goldfields Steam Train runs on Wednesdays, Sundays and some holidays. Definitely worth checking out. Toot Toot!
