Princes Park Playground in Maryborough is located alongside the picturesque Lake Victoria with its ducks, swans, great variety of trees, and walking track.

The playground features a lot of great play equipment including a carousel, suspended-seat flying fox, spiral slide, monkey bars, swings and much more.

There are two play areas. One has the main playground structure and a carousel, the other has the flying fox, monkey bars and a swing set.

There are two undercover picnic areas with free electric barbecues.

The first picnic area lies alongside the flying fox and has a new free electric barbecue and a picnic table. The toilet block is near this barbecue area.

The other picnic area is well equipped with two free electric barbecues set in a large brick bench, two picnic tables plus extra seating around the edges.

There are rubbish bins and water taps available.

A large grassy field lies beside the playground and barbecue areas.

Lake Victoria is a great place to go for a leisurely stroll or feed the ducks and swans. Please note that feeding ducks bread is detrimental to their health, try some of these more appropriate alternatives:

  • Corn (canned, frozen or fresh)
  • Duck pellets (sold online and at pet stores)
  • Lettuce, other greens (torn into small pieces)
  • Frozen peas (defrosted)
  • Oats (rolled or instant)
  • Seeds (including birdseed or other varieties)


  • There are so many excellent playgrounds tucked away in little-known places. Take a look through this great list of playgrounds throughout the Victorian Goldfields.
  • There are hundreds of fantastic barbecue areas throughout the Victorian Goldfields. Some are in parks/playgrounds, others are scattered throughout the bush. Many barbecue areas are located alongside amazing attractions and walks, so go out for a barbecue and get exploring!
