This one’s for the young and the young at heart.
Family attraction Fairy Park is located just 60 minutes from Melbourne and 30 minutes from Geelong and have just announced they’ll be reopening from Thursday September 24.
Dedicated to tales, myths and legends, the park features 32 scenes housed in awe-inspiring castles, cottages and caves set among beautifully manicured gardens which guests will be able to explore once again.
Stories include all the classics that we know and love, ranging from Red Riding Hood to Rumplestilskin. Visitors can witness Cinderella at the Grand Ball, see Jack in his beanstalk, join the Teddy Bears at their Picnic and hear the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, among many others. There’s even a medieval Camelot Playground that children can explore secret passages, climb daring towers and meet mystical creatures, and the park features one of Australia’s largest collections of rare Marklin (gauge1) model trains. Even if you’re not into the tales and myths, the breathtaking 360 degree panoramic views of Mt Anakie’s extinct volcano and the rich landscape that can be seen from the summit is reason enough to go check it out.
Tickets start at $12 with children under two free. They’ll be open everyday from September 24 but you will have to purchase your tickets online prior to arrival.
Admission is from 10am to 4pm. No admission after 4pm and gates close 5pm. Caps on numbers will apply. As the Park is spread out over a large area, there’s plenty of room. Masks and social distancing rules apply.
