McNish Reserve, Court Street, Yarraville




A huge interactive dinosaur ‘Muttaburrasaurus’ based on a species that lived in Australia around 100 million years ago dominates the Reserve.

Kids can climb up into the cavernous belly using a rope net and look out through the rib cage. Some play activities are integrated into the character such as a tunnel slide in the tail and climbing grips. There are also drums and a voice tube from inside the neck which comes out through the mouth to enhance the imaginative experience. Scattered around the dinosaur are some broken egg shells and intact eggs - the experience will go up a few notches on the fear scale if one of those eggs manages to hatch.

There is no other play equipment in the Reserve which is a pity since there is a limit to how long you can spend with an extinct animal, even one as captivating as this.

The Yarraville Community Garden is nearby and there is a shelter with table and water tap.

Update: Shade sails have been added.
