Blackbutt Reserve, Newcastle Reviews
This place is a cool place to get away with the family for a day. Pity about the paid parking but I guess you can't have everything. Nice play areas, BBQ facilities and undercover eating areas. Free to look at the zoo in the reserve.
Perfect hideaway, tranquility awaits as you step through a large scale property and paths leading you around to view all the animals. If you head north there's lots birds in there own sanctuary you can watch them through the glass enclosures. Peacocks roam free along with ducks. Children can play on slides whilst waiting for the bbq to cook. Overall great for family's.
Absolutely awesome! Well done to the caretakers of this picinic area.the facilities/amenities were clean and well maintained. There are BBQs, water on tap and plenty for the kids to do and see. The large grasses area is perfect for a game of cricket or to kick the footy. A medium sized playground kept the kids entertained for hours. The highlight however was the boardwalk discovering native wildlife we all enjoyed it. I cant believe that this place almost shut down.
Amazing, great kids park, lots of beautiful walks. Lovely birds and animals as well as duck ponds. All for a few dollars parking. Great for the kids Little cafe as well with pod coffee and plenty of snacks and a few toys for the little ones.
An excellent all ages venue with flat easily accessible parking and facilities. Animal displays are nearby and free (other than the paid parking). You can see a variety of birds, reptiles and koalas at close range. Covered tables and Bbq facilities are clean and well maintained.
