Park bookings

Bookings only apply to the designated site you choose in the park and to the use of any facilities in that designated site such as a rotunda or power (if available). You cannot book barbecues, shelters (other than rotundas marked) or playgrounds for your specific use, though your group is free to share these facilities with other park visitors. Power points may have different phases (i.e. operate on different voltages), so it is advisable to check your electronic equipment's compatibility before your event. No vehicle access.

You may also be able to book a different area of the park (rather than the designated site). For more information phone Council on 07 3403 8888 and ask to speak to a Regional Parks Officer.
