Park bookings

Bookings only apply to the park booking site you choose in the park and to the use of any facilities in that booking site. 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. 

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.
