ThunderBird Park in the Gold Coast hinterland has introduced Australia’s first mini excavator park for kids.
Young adventurers can channel their inner tradie by donning a yellow tradie hat for a day of safe digging, operating one of nine CAT mini excavators. The park features four excavation zones, including the Dig Zone for hands-on training on a 1.7-tonne excavator, the Croc Zone for hunting toy crocodiles, the Demolition Zone for wrecking ball fun, and the RC Zone where kids operate remote control machines.
Dig IT at Thunderbird park costs $59 for a 120 minute session. Kids of any age can sit in the drivers seat of the 1.7-tonne excavator but children under five must be in the lap of a guardian.
