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.

Such a lovely play area for kids- and their parents. you could tell it is being used by visitors and locals alike. lot of laughing being heard. Now, if I only had a kid, never mind, was able to visit the shop for most affordable teatime. Well done City of Cairns.......

the food was ok and the view was good but it was nothing out of the box. The calamari though was what made eating there worth it

My 1 year old loved Muddy's for it's water play area. Being so young and not walking, the other play equipment was too large for him but he rather enjoyed crawling around and splashing in the streams of water. Such a great place for kids of all ages. Just be prepared to get a bit wet yourself, even if you... More

Surrounded by a grass this is a great place for kids to enjoy a hot day in Cairns. Parents can mostly relax - depending on the age of the child - as there are plenty of kids to play with. Equipment looks well maintained.

Kids were entertained there for hours. It was good to spent there warm evenings, because this place is really good light up even at night time. Restaurant/bar is on site so no problem to get coffee, ice cream or lunch.

We traveled with no children but saw plenty of families playing here. Tons of shade, right on the coast and lots of breeze. We would definitely play here with our children.
