Deep Water Point Playspaces

Deep Water Point Reserve showcases a series of small custom-built playspaces, carefully crafted to offer a greater play experience whilst maintaining access to the sandy rivers edge.

Reclaimed jetty timbers and bespoke play elements inspire and excite the imagination. Kids can climb up amidst the tree canopy for birds eye views, swing or hang out under spectacular trees, explore the Little Black Cormorant nest  or do bombies off the jetty.

A great place to come and enjoy a BBQ with family and friends and explore this ever changing landscape.
