What an awesome playground.. Great place to sit and relax with a nice coffee while the kids have a blast on the play equipment or running through the water features, bit of a struggle getting the kids to leave though!!

Great playground. Lots of options for both toddlers and old kids. Make sure you dress them in bathers because there are water features to run through. No real drawbacks - just watch out for the local wildlife. My daughter got a massive rhinoceros beetle in her hair which freaked her out no end.

walking along the boardwalk in Cairns has a lot of highlights: The free exercise stations, the view, the bbq areas. One of the best of these is muddy's playground. Plenty of shaded areas, water fun and things for the little ones to do. My slightly older kids (7&9) still loved this area, but best suited to even younger.

Good for children from 2 to 11. Close to CBD at the end of the esplanade and even a cafe for parents.

I'm reviewing this on behalf of my son and daughter in law who liked Muddy's so much they visited 3 times in one week! They have a nearly 2 year old and a 7 month old and said the food was great and playground was fantastic for really little kiddies. We want one in Adelaide.

My 2 year old was in her element, there's so much for the kids to do here from the water activities, to climbing as well as the little kids section. A great free activity that will keep the kids very busy and provide so much fun.

Thank you for the great coffee and wonderful service. I think my grandma outing with the little ones will be done more often.

This place my wife and I take our little one regularly. She loves it, right on the waterfront with cafe and plenty of activities for the kids. We usually spend a easy couple of hours here when we visit.

Open long hours this free but well-maintained playarea has water-play, sand and climbing areas and a efficient well-used café to feed the family. Suitable for all age-groups (we had a 12yr old down to a 5yr old among our group and they all found ways to have fun) I'd bring togs, and towel and grab a coffee and a table... More
