We’ve visited Endeavour Park a few times now. But haven’t yet gotten around to writing up our review. So we thought we would share some photos and a little info to give you a feel for what it’s like while you wait for our full review.
The design of Endeavour Park is inspired by Captain Cook’s voyage aboard the HMB Endeavour. Some elements are a little more obvious than others. Like the ship’s deck and masts where the swings are, which is actually a 1:1 scale of HMB Endeavour.
Thankfully there are markings and information around to help us out. Like at the ball play area where it’s marked as the East coast of ‘New Holland’ aka Australia.
And Cook’s first part of his voyage to Tahiti is represented in the shape of the sandpit and intergenerational exercise area.
Something you may miss is how the orbit of Venus around Earth is represented by a curved concrete band. We know we did until we read more about the park on the Blacktown City Council website.
And taking pride of place on the ship is Captain Cook’s goat.
Here are some more photos of Endeavour Park.
Finding Endeavour Park
Endeavour Park is near the intersection of M7 and Norwest Boulevard. It has 5 streets around it, where you can park. But we mostly park on Shanke Crescent as this is right where the playground and toilets are.
