Donnybrook Apple Fun Park 


The Apple Fun Park is the biggest free entry playground in Australia. The playground first opened in Easter 2008, the park has play equipment for all ages – toddlers to teenagers.

Situated in the heart of Donnybrook (corner of Collins and Reserve St – off South West Highway) and close to shops, the Apple FunPark is the ideal destination for a day of family fun.

In 2019, the Shire of Donnybrook Balingup secured $1.5 million under Round 3 of the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund to revitalise Donnybrook’s iconic playground. The revitalised Donnybrook Apple Fun Park was officially open on Friday 8 October 2021.
