Healing Garden Playground
The Healing Garden, located opposite Cairns Hospital, was redeveloped in 2013 around existing features to include a new play area. One of the existing features is the Bamboo – a symbol of longevity and humility. The coastal breezes sway the Bamboo, which bends easily. It does not break readily and is therefore seen as a symbol of strength.
The Healing Garden is planted with green to assist with balance and harmony. Healing colours highlight the play area: pale violet to soothe emotional distress and bring about calm; and yellow to help with strengthening the mind and to assist with nerve pain.
There are toilets located close to the Healing Garden Playground, near the beach volleyball courts.
