Enjoy a sunset play at Belmont South foreshore playground

This playground offers an abundance of space with a million dollar view.  Belmont South playground provides the perfect relaxed, family friendly environment for a sunset play and a picnic dinner. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll get to watch the birdlife feeding in the shallows on a low tide. A favourite spot for pelicans, black swans and eastern great egret. Come for a play and stay for the atmosphere, because it doesn’t get much better than this on a cool summer evening.


Getting to Belmont South Foreshore Reserve

Belmont South playground is located on the Pacific Highway at Belmont South. It’s really easy to find. There’s a dedicated car park, toilet block, electric BBQ, plenty of seats, plus space to throw a picnic blanket.

We love visiting late in the afternoon and enjoying a sunset play. Grab some fish and chips from Belmont or Blacksmiths for a casual picnic dinner.

The playground has everything they need. It’s not massive but it’s enough. Kids can enjoy the muti-function play equipment, a spinning rope climb, a see-saw and swings. One swing is for toddlers. 

We find the kids play for a while but end up down at the shore-line fossicking. Nothing quite beats nature. The trees in this park drop lots of things they can collect and use their imagination to play.


A little slice of paradise can be found down at the foreshore. Plan an hour or two for some quality family time, fresh air and a magnificent sunset over Lake Macquarie.
