The Park is the perfect place for your family picnic, birthday celebration, corporate fun day or social group outing and picnic shelters can be booked for any occasion.
We have a number of picnic and shade shelters, both in the Village and Mussel Pool, that are available to hire or use free of charge when they haven’t been pre-reserved.
Hiring a shelter ensures that you will have a shady place for your family and friends to enjoy your day at Whiteman Park. Shelter hire is by no means mandatory, but is highly recommended, especially in the peak periods of October through to March.
There are also a number of picnic tables dotted throughout the Park that are offered on a first-in first-served basis. These tables are usually located in the shadiest spots, and we do appreciate them being left in the spots they are found.
Each shelter has a barbeque in close proximity, but they are general use barbecues and cannot be reserved with shelter hire.
For more details about hiring the shelters, please go to the Hire Facilities and Group Bookings page in the Visitor Information section of the website.
