The Marsupial Park is a native animal experience unlike any other in New South Wales, the 14-hectare park has free entry. Children can get close to kangaroos, wallabies, cockatoos and emus, spot the species in the free-flight aviary and hand-feed the Indian peacocks.
Within the Marsupial Park is the community-built Adventure Playground which has two distinct areas: one for under-fives and another for over-fivess. It encourages children to use their fine and gross motor skills – and of course, their imagination. There are barbecue facilities and bathrooms.
Winding its way through the Marsupial Park is the Kamilaroi Walking Track, which links the Marsupial Park, Botanic Garden, Oxley Lookout and Flagstaff Mountain over a distance of several kilometres.
The Adventure Playground combines two age-appropriate areas designed by Tamworth’s children. Free gas barbecues are also available.
