As if we needed another reason to spend all our time at Pacific Fair.

The Gold Coast’s shopping Mecca has added another attraction to its already impressive list of ‘must see’s, with the brand new Play Street playground. Located just behind H&M and Uniqlo, Play Street features a high climb course, giant slide and toddler playroom – all set amongst a magical jungle backdrop.

“Play Street is purposefully designed to encourage a children’s sense of independence, exploration, and creativity,” says Kate Halpin, Senior Marketing Manager at Pacific Fair. “Big kids have had a blast climbing all the way to the top of the 8m high-climb course whilst the toddler room encourages low-set play for the smaller kids. Parents and carers are relishing in the chance to sit back and catch a break whilst the kids burn some energy.”

What was once an unused area has been transformed into a unique and vibrant play space, complete with bespoke artwork by renowned artist Gola Hundun. The area is inspired by the beauties of Australian flora, and perfectly complements Gola’s signature style – the light and bright colours pop in the sunlight, and it’s a great space for parents and kids to enjoy the fresh air. Then, by night, Play Street comes to life under the stars with a collection of unique festoon and animated lighting.

Open from 8am until 8pm daily, Play Street is just one of many fantastic play zones available to shoppers at Pacific Fair.

“Play Street is a great addition to the existing play zones in the centre, as well as our extensive entertainment offering including Event Cinemas, iPlay and our popular kids’ club, Little Paccas,” says Kate.

Kids will love:

  • The 8m high-climb obstacle course, complete with a bridge boasting the best views of Play Street!
  • A giant slide which connects the high-climb course and toddler playroom
  • The low-set interactive toddler playroom, which includes a tunnel, wall climber, steppers and activity tables

Parents will love:

  • The plenitude of relaxation stations to sit back and easily supervise their children
  • Designated pram parking – cha-ching!
  • The many cafes and restaurants close by, including Crema Espresso
