Snow Play, Sled Dogs & Tobogganing

Operating hours for September and October

Snow Play area has now closed for the 2017 winter season.

Snow Play and Tobogganing Areas

The snow play area is situated at the beautiful and sheltered location of Possum Flat, adjacent to Wire Plain. A moderate toboggan slope overlooking Possum Flat is suited to kids of all ages. There is also plenty of space to let your imagination go wild and build a snowman, snow castle, or any sort of snow creature!

The snow play area will be open as per below during the season, though the toboggan slope may be closed due to insufficient snow depth. Please observe signs and safety conditions below. Facilities at the snow play and toboggan area include the Wire Plain day shelter and Snow Play Park.

Please ensure you take your own toboggan on weekdays, as you cannot hire them from Wire Plain for the remainder of the season.
