Big Banana is back, baby!

The Big Banana will reopen at 9am next Wednesday, just in time for school holidays.

"We are thrilled to be reopening all areas of the Fun Park to guests and we look forward to them joining us for a whole bunch of fun!" General Manager Michael Lockman said.

"The café and gift shop along with a few of our tenanted shopfronts recommenced trading a few weeks ago. Re-opening the rides and attractions is the final stage of our gradual return to business".

The park was closed in March in line with government requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We have ulitised the closure of park to undertake some maintenance and enhancement activities including gardening, landscaping, painting and refurbishing," he said.

"The Ice Rink is the only attraction that will remain closed as it is receiving a major refurbishment of the ice surface and surrounds. The Water Park will remain closed as usual in winter"

Mr Lockman said the park will operate in accordance with social distancing requirements.

"We have developed a Covid-Safe plan that ensures the safety of our staff and guests," he said.

"We urge our guests to follow signage and any direction given by staff. It is important they always maintain social distancing and of course if you are unwell, please stay at home and visit us on another day."
