POD Playground at the National Arboretum
Let the kids expend some energy at the magical Pod Playground at the National Arboretum Canberra. The kids will have a blast hiding in the acorn cubbies, clambering across the climbing nets, making music in the banksia cubbies and slipping down the tube slides.
You’ll appreciate the stunning views over Canberra with coffee in hand.
Ideal for children of all ages, the Pod Playground is specially designed to both challenge and excite the Arboretum’s younger visitors.
There is a bathroom and change facilities in the Pod playground.
Please practice social distancing, maintain good hygiene and stay home if you are sick. Due to current health advice, please view their website for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
