At ellaslist, we're big fans of new playgrounds, so when we hear that one is claiming to be 'Australia's largest playground' then our ears perk right up.

The site in question is the former Bunnings Underwood in Brisbane (sorry Sydney and Melbourne folks!) which has been completely gutted to make room for this mega new family entertainment centre - Area 51.
