Summer Tales is a jungle-gym of sun fuelled frolics and a playground of hammocks, rope swing chairs and terraces for that all important lounging.

You can even hire out private multi-level huts for a group hangout session where beats, eats and booze are right at your doorstep. Gallivant to your hearts content around this exotic wonderland and take to the mini adventure trails that will take you from the food littered jungle floor all the way up to the canopy’s above. 

On the Summer Tales menu they have Burger & Lobster making their pop-up debut with fan favourites like Bonnie Gull’s Seafood Shack, Morty & Bob’s, Forza Win and Pizza Pilgrims bringing the rest of the munching noise. Drinks will be knocked up at the Lazy Flamingo Cocktail Bar and a Frozen Punch Bar so you can shlurp and sup your way through the summer haze. Coco Shack will also be making an appearance for those looking for some natural refreshment.
