This is a great facility. First of all it must be remembered that you don't have to pay for entry. The bets part is that its suitable fro all ages of kids, and my nearly 3 year old never gets bored there. Lots of water based activities, so if you don't plan on coming home wet, you may need to...

This playground has it all, water play, a café, clean toilets and a great location on the esplanade. My kids are all grown up but this playground would have rated highly with them. The kids that were there were just having the best time without a care in the world. It's free, convenient and well designed. Definitely worth a visit... More

Great playground for under 12 kids with a cafe that has coffee, breakfast, fish and chips etc. A good meeting place for families with young kids. Bring a towel and extra clothes as there is some water play.

I wish we found this place earlier in our trip; it is definitely a must see for parents with little kids. They have areas for very small kids and other areas for bigger kids. They have places where you can get wet and places where you don't have to get wet. They also have food available for purchase. You can... More

Muddy's is just too good for the kiddies, they and their imaginations get to run wild in a safe and super fun environment with well positioned seating for exhausted parents to relax and enjoy the little ones just going nuts and having fun. A small cafe is also located within the area but I think the best part is the... More

We spent two weeks in Cairns recently and visited Muddy's three times. There is so much to do and the children just went from site to site and had a lovely time. Cairns is so lucky to have such a wonderful facility - we are from Margate in Kent, England. While our weather can't compare to Cairns's we'd love somewhere... More
