The Moduplay Skytower at Stuart Park, Wollongong has become “the playground to go to” for children and families from all over the Illawarra and beyond!
The all-inclusive design has allowed kids of all abilities to play together in one cohesive and colourful environment. Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbury stated that the playground would get a “Gold Star” and a “swag of ‘WOWs’ from the kids” when speaking at the grand opening.
At 8.6m high it promises a lot and delivers more! The tower, one of the largest of it’s kind in Australia is part of a play area featuring a Double SkyRider, multiple Swingsets, innovative Spinpoint Spinners and a smaller play structure for younger children. The area also features a Liberty Swing – allowing children in wheelchairs to experience the thrill of swinging!

The sheer thrill of being able to climb so high is an attraction in itself to kids of all ages, then the giant curving tube slides give them a reason to keep coming back. The area also features three 4m x 4m Tilba Shelters, one of which is home to a BBQ plate – allowing for family gatherings at the park within metres of the play equipment. There is also ample flat grassy areas with great vision of the playground – making it easy for you to keep an eye on your little ones while you sit back and relax!
The Moduplay Skytower is part of a massive regional play area just completed by Moduplay for Wollongong City Council with Moduplay’s own team doing the entire construction of the landmark project.
It also includes a replica “Nissen Hut” which is reminiscent of the early migrant days of the Illawarra, a nice little salute to the heritage of Wollongong!
