INSIDE: More Waitomo Attractions for Kids. 2018.
“Look, there’s a playground!”
It’s a regular call from the back seat, and one that is hard to ignore.
Especially when it’s brightly coloured, uniquely intriguing, and brand new.
What’s a mum to do?
Waitomo Attractions for Kids – Waitomo Playground
The Waitomo playground is directly opposite the Waitomo iSITE tourist information centre on Waitomo Village Road.
The actual town is teeny-weeny, with just a few hotels, motels and cafes.
Look to your right as you drive through towards the Waitomo Caves tourist attraction, and you’ll spot the playground and grassy park area on your right.
Waitomo Playground Equipment
There’s three structures for kids to play on.
- A modern-day fort with rope bridge, steps, platform and an eye-catching lime-green coloured slide.
- A climbing frame with net basket
- Two singular swings, plus a rope nest swing
There’s a picnic table next door so it’s the perfect spot for a picnic or to run off some steam after a Cave tour.
You can read our review of the Waitomo Caves Tour we took in August here. (Coming soon)
