Throughout the park you will find hidden treasures rela ng to the story a wombat, an echidna, Platypus’ House, Frogmouth’s House, Wombat’s House and the Bower Birds Nest - Hannah really enjoyed pretending to be all the different animals and making friends with the wombat. If you like skateboarding, then this is the park for you, it has an incredible skate bowl with some of the most amazing art work for its backdrop. Other facili es include - a BBQ, drink fountain, 2 undercover areas, lots of tables and chairs, plus other wooden benches, a rubbish bin and toilets. While in Kinglake, why not make a day of it and visit Kinglake Na onal Park. Where you will find the beau ful McKenzie Falls, just a short walk from the car park. Hannah’s p of the month - there is so much to play and do at Bollygum, take some snacks or a picnic lunch ... as your kids will not want to leave. I didn’t!
