Petrie Mill Adventure Playground | Petrie

Pop this spot high on your 'must-visit' list as it is one of the best playgrounds Brisbane has to offer.

Located within The Mill at Moreton Bay precinct at Petrie this space is home to Moreton Bay Region’s first free water park, with splash pad and water bucket. Petrie Mill Adventure Playground is fast-becoming a popular recreation park in the Moreton Bay Region.

Fun for all ages in Moreton Bay Region

Petrie Mill Adventure Playground not only has a free water park, it also features two playgrounds for younger and older children, flying fox, a large cricket pitch and green space, and sheltered barbecue area.

The adventure tower echoes the main industrial structure of the Petrie paper mill, which used to occupy the site. There’s a range of climbing and exploratory challenges throughout, with climbing nets over multiple levels before reaching the top. It has been designed so adults can easily supervise their children and even have a go themselves.

Littlies can climb at varying heights in the junior play area, explore imaginative peek-a-boo elements, crawl through spaces, and slide to their heart’s content. Petrie Mill Adventure Playground has to be one of the best playgrounds to explore in Brisbane!
