My toddler played here every day for a week while we stayed in Cairns. What a great little place on the Esplanade to relax and let the kids play.

What a great playground we have here in Cairns! My sister and I regularly take my two year old niece who absolutely loves muddys (I think it was close to one of her first words!) not only do the various playgrounds cater for all ages but the water features are just excellent for cooling off for free in cairns city!...

This playground is amazing and a credit to the Cairns council. A great place to take your child/children, it has a cafe (for the parents) and plenty of equipment to entertain your child/children. The water features are awesome and its all FREE. Every city/town should have something like this. Totally awesome

My 4 year old and I both enjoyed Muddy's very much! This playground is a child's dream come true. We literally spent hours here. Water spouts, jungle jim, slides, everything a playground needs AND more, including a cafe with Australian style goodies and coffees. Location is right along the board walk of Cairns.

One of the best playgrounds I have ever seen - great for all ages with plenty of wonderful play equipment. There is only a fence around the small play area so you have to keep close in the bigger are but nevertheless a superb place to spend hours with your kids. Would recommend it to every family.
