Visitor Information Centre Playground, Glenelg Highway, Lake Bolac
Located next to the visitor Information Centre and full of activities and facilities for a family stop. There is an old blue and red tractor to climb up onto and drive, three shelters with tables and a BBQ, water tap and a play structure under shade sails with wave slide, scrambling wall, fireman's pole, ladder, tunnel, small slide, steering wheel, steps, walkway, flying fox and monkey bars.
Also under shade is a skateboard springer, frog springer, stand-on spinner and a four person rocker. Unshaded are a skateboard springer, swings, speedboat on springs and a standalone traverse of hanging disks. Unshaded seats and a smallish grassy area next to the playground.
