Biami Yumba Park at Fig Tree Pocket

Fig Tree Pocket park

A huge wildlife-filled park in the western suburbs of Brisbane, Biami Yumba Park has something to amuse Brisbane Kids of all ages under the mature shady trees.

Biami Yumba Park is built around a lagoon, offering you a relaxing natural outlook while your kids have fun in this well built, impressive playground.  A wooden fort shaded by mature trees is the centrepiece and is inviting but also well suited to its natural surrounds. Climbing onto the fort can be achieved via a climbing net, ladder built into a vertical wall or wooden deck steps, ensuring this is accessible to the youngest playground adventurers. 

The playground features two slides, a bigger tunnel slide and a smaller open slide. Wobbly bridges abound and rails feature all along the bridges to provide a steady back-up for young ones. Close to the main fort is a children’s slide mound that makes it easy for toddlers to climb up the hill and safely make their own way back down the slide.

There is a sway fun glider that is accessible via ramps for kids with mobility issues or those in a wheelchair so that all kids are able to play together.

Other playground features include swings (both standard and net), a well-sized sandpit and a seesaw. There are bike paths and a natural pond with a family of local ducks. Biami Yumba Park really is a lovely location for a picnic, with an electric barbecue, two sheltered tables and plenty of grass for a picnic blanket and ball games.

Imagination Factor

Surrounded by colourful garden beds and wildlife galore, Biami Yumba Park offers plenty of opportunities for little explorers. From building roads and mountains in the sandpit to dragonfly spotting from the fort, the possibilities are endless for creative fun. We especially love the attention to detail which separates Biami Yumba from your typical Brisbane playground. Concrete planters have been painted in rainbow-themed scenes and there is signage showing the life cycle of the dragonfly.

Another great Brisbane Playground nearby is Rafting Ground Reserve. Biama Yumba is located in the same suburb at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

It’s also across the road from the pony club fields and Lone Pine’s eucalyptus plantation, so the kids can often see horses and the Lone Pine sheep, which gives it a nice countryside feel.
 
If you have noticed what appears to be a change of name from Biamba Yumbi to Biama Yumba, you would be right! According to our sources, the signage of the park was incorrect and while this has been amended, there will still be lots of references online to Biamba Yumbi. It is also sometimes referred to as Fig Tree Pocket Reserve.
