Carrum beach and playground

Carrum is a beachside town close to Frankston (outside Melbourne, Australia). Carrum beach and playground is an amazing park that’s right on the foreshore of the beach, and is set on sand not tanbark. The playground has a beachy vibe, with a play lighthouse and boat, amongst the usual swings and slides.

We played at the playground, walked to the beach, chased the seagulls, had a splash, had another play at the playground, then walked to a local eatery. This is a great spot for kids. The playground has bathrooms, BBQs, fencing that keeps toddlers out of the parking area, as well as shade umbrellas. We also enjoyed the beach themed climbing structures and lounge chairs. We loved the beach as it is very clean, flat and safe – as well as sandy so we could play barefoot.

There are lots of cafes nearby. We ate at Burgled! The best burgers and milkshakes just a short walk away. There are plenty of options available depending on the time and day you visit.


We came by car (only 10 minutes off Eastlink), but it’s very easily accesible by train or bus as well.

Take bathers, and beach toys. Lots of kids played with buckets and spades in amongst the play equipment.
