Con­cept images have been released of the nature play and vis­i­tor hub precinct for Glen­thorne Nation­al Park-Itya­mai­it­pin­na Yarta, show­ing a vision for a thriv­ing envi­ron­men­tal and recre­ation­al space.


The vibrant Nature Play Precinct, a joint ini­tia­tive between the state gov­ern­ment and City of Mar­i­on, will fea­ture many attrac­tions for peo­ple of all ages and abil­i­ties, includ­ing a maze walk, tree tow­er and an obsta­cle course amongst oth­er major attractions.

Mean­while the broad­er vis­i­tor hub will have plen­ty of green, open space for peo­ple to enjoy, with fea­tures such as a restored creek line, tim­ber board­walk, her­itage barn area, and plen­ty of red gums and his­toric pine trees.

Here’s a taste of what these works could look like:
