Plantation Park

Plantation Park in Ayr is a popular stop offering shady areas for picnics, access to the Juru Walk and the state-of-the-art Plantation Nature Play. Plantation Park is also home to a 60m carpet snake sculpture, Gubulla Munda, which was built by the Gudjuda Reference Group in 2004 to celebrate and promote indigenous culture.

The park follows the flowing creek with a number of lush, shady trees which surround the number of great facilities on offer. The facilities include public toilets, picnic tables, BBQ facilities and caravan parking.

Located in the park, the Burdekin Visitor Information Centre in Ayr makes the perfect stop for visitors who want to talk to a local expert, to obtain brochures and maps, experience the Yongala Dive Virtual Reality Experience or the Wilmar Virtual Mill Tour. The Visitor Information Centre operates 7 days a week and operates as a driver reviver site.
