If you’re looking for a day filled with fun for the tribe, The Entrance waterfront park is a fabulous place to stop for a play. Here’s what you’ll find at this fantastic kid friendly space.
What’s on at The Entrance waterfront park?
There is a fantastic playground right on the water’s edge and surrounded by eateries including fish and chips shops, an ice cream parlour and clubs and bars if you’re looking to dine in.
The Entrance waterfront park has everything including:
- A wide slide that can fit four kids at a time
- An in-ground trampoline in four quadrants
- Climbing spider web frame
- Climbing frame with ropes and balancing apparatus
- Soft fall stepping balls
There’s also a permanent carnival
Nestled into The Entrance waterfront park is a historic Carousel which arrived in Australia from France in the 1900s. It arrived in The Entrance in 1930 and has been owned by many different operators, but at the moment, it’s being run by Haas Family Carnival.
It runs on weekends and during school holidays which makes a visit to The Entrance even more exciting. The Haas Family Carnival also has other rides nearby including a jumping castle, a giant inflatable slide and some side show clowns. For $10 per child, you can have 2 rides and a go on the clowns.
And don’t forget the pelican feeding
Right on the waterfront at 3:30pm every day, tribes can enjoy one of the Central Coast’s most popular attractions – pelican feeding! There is a viewing platform known as Pelican Plaza where the area’s colony of pelicans gather for a feed every afternoon.
The Entrance has been recognised as the ‘Pelican Capital of Australia’. The great part about this initiative is that the local volunteers can both educate the crowds about pelicans and they can also keep an eye on the health of the pelicans.
