As part of the 2018 Commonwealth Games event, council, in partnership with the Queensland Government, Nature Play Queensland and the Office of the Commonwealth Games, have installed a traditional indigenous games trail in Muller Park. The games and trail location were selected in consultation with the traditional owners of the area, the Kabi Kabi First Nation People. The word Biwathin, pronounced Bee-wad-jin, comes from the Kabi Kabi language of the Sunshine Coast and means ‘to laugh’.
Explore the Biwathin Games Trail to find out about traditional games that were played by indigenous children in many different parts of Australia.
Muller Park is also home to the Guyu's friend Mr. Pelican Story Seat by Hope who is a Kabi-Kabi (also known as Gubbi-Gubbi), Wakka-Wakka, Koa. Gugu-Yalanji who holds a Doctor of Education Indigenous Knowledge, and a Doctor of Philosophy, Creative Arts, and Industry.
See the location of Muller Park using the Beaches and Parks Directory Map for further information.

Other useful information
We’ve created a handy interactive map to help you identify the dog off-leash, on-leash and prohibited areas when you’re out and about across the Sunshine Coast local government region.
We’ve also included locations for dog water bowls so you can keep your pet hydrated.
Be a responsible pet owner: Please note that it’s your responsibility to have doggie bags with you at all times when taking your dog for a walk in public. Please don’t rely on the doggie bag dispensers as they are in high demand and may need restocking, so don’t get caught out.
