Tumbalong Park Darling Harbour




As well as hosting some of Sydney’s finest shops, restaurants, hotels and entertainment venues, Darling Harbour is home to one of the local area’s most iconic play spaces in Sydney, Tumbalong Park.

The 5 hectare park, is most well known for it’s water play area which is the best place to be in the middle of a sweltering Sydney Summer.   There are 26 water jets, as well as a people-powered water scoop, screw and squirt!

But don’t worry – the kids probably won’t want to sit still long enough to dry off.  And why would you when there is a big slide, jumbo swings, tangled web and a 10 metre high octanet!

For something a little more tranquil, you can’t go past the Chinese Garden of Friendship. You can access the grounds for a small entry fee and take in the gorgeous surrounds, designed by Chinese landscape artists in consultation with the local Chinese community.

Toilets and Baby Change facilities

Public toilets including a baby change table are located on the park’s fringes.

Getting to Tumbalong Park

Out & About Baby Tip

Pick your timing when visiting this park. On weekends it can get out of control and makes it very hard to keep your eye on a busy toddler.
