West Ryde Wombats is a community playgroup for children 0-5yrs held at West Ryde Community Hall on Monday , Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:30am to 11:30am.

Our playgroup is a chance for the kids to explore different toys, interact with other kids and generally have fun running around and playing in a clean, large and safe space as well as a chance for parents to connect with other local parents.  

West Ryde Wombats Playgroup

Most of our playgroup is spent in free play and parents take turns organising a weekly group activity for the kids, such as craft, cooking or singing.

The hall provides a great, large, bright space for the kids to play in, with a wide range of toys for babies through to pre-schoolers. There is a covered outside area, which we have access to most weeks (as it is shared with another organisation).

West Ryde Wombats Playgroup

Our playgroup is run by the parents/ carers attending. All families are required to participate in the roster for group activities (and morning tea for the Monday group), setting up and packing up toys and other equipment as well as other organisational duties from time to time.

Our sessions follow the NSW public school term dates, with four terms a year of between 9-11 weeks. The fee to attend is $20 per school term per family to cover the hall rent, toys, equipment and craft consumables. We are associated with Playgroup NSW and all families attending need to be members of Playgroup NSW.

West Ryde Wombats

Children attending playgroup must be accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times. Grandparents, nannies or other carers are most welcome. We respectfully ask that the accompanying parent/carer speak English for safety reasons and follow instructions from playgroup committee members.

Looking down from the overpass

The Sydney Live Steam Locomotive Society was formed in 1948 on its present site. They open on the third Saturday afternoon of each month from 1.30pm to around 4.30pm.

West Ryde Mini Trains

They have three miniature railways and offer rides on trains hauled by miniature steam locomotives. The park grounds are a popular location for children’s birthday parties or small group afternoon gatherings. For the enthusiast, it is a good spot to just lie back and watch those steam trains work hard pulling heavily loaded passenger trains.

West Ryde Mini Trains

  • They have a kiosk which sells drinks, ice cream, cakes, chips, etc.
  • Entry is $4 for adults and $2 for children. Rides are $2 each for all ages UPDATED: August 2018.
  • PLEASE NOTE: You must wear enclosed shoes in order to ride the trains.
