The Back Creek picnic area is a popular place for birthday celebrations and family gatherings. There are free gas barbecues, easily accessible picnic tables and a large field that is perfect for a spot of cricket, football and kite flying.
The kids will love this picnic area; there’s a timber maze with an observation deck for you to watch them getting lost and found again and a special mining-themed playground with tunnel and crank-handled conveyor belt for adventurers to get into the spirit of the place.
If you feel like exploring the history of the park a little more, you can take the easy walk accross the creek to the pleasant view over Minmi cemetery. Many of the men who worked in the mines were laid to rest here, see if you can find the oldest grave.
