Prior to closing permanently on Sunday, 27 August 2023, Jindalee Jungle held a massive clearance sale to sell off all of its assets, from the sprawling climbing frames to bouncing pillows. They also sold their website and social media channels as part of the digital assets.

According to the management, the closure comes as the lease renewal is due in September and it is no longer financially viable for them to continue operations.

Jindalee Jungle had originally planned to shut down in February when they announced they would stop accepting bookings, but reopened under new management shortly after. However, the return proved short-lived.

Many loyal customers expressed disappointment over the permanent closure. “Thanks for creating a space to make such special memories with my kids. So sad to see your doors closing,” one mother commented on social media. 

“Thank you for all the fun you guys have provided for my three over the last few years. We have had so much fun at your place and we will miss you,” one mum said.

Another customer who had held a birthday party there said, “Such a shame. My kids are older now. This was a space that I could let my kids play, watch them and have a simple cuppa.”

Jindalee Jungle became a popular venue for children’s parties and family outings, with its huge play frames, bouncing castles, and slides. The closure now leaves a void in the market for indoor active spaces catered to young children.

New Operators May Take Over Jindalee Jungle to Prevent Closure

After announcing plans to permanently close, Jindalee Jungle may have a shot at remaining open after all, thanks to new operators who have expressed interest in taking over the popular indoor play centre.

In mid-January 2023, the current owners posted a notice on its Facebook page that it will cease operations at the end of the month. 

Families who have been regulars of Jindalee Jungle were sad about the news, including a mom who had booked the place for her child’s birthday party in February. The indoor play centre has a cafe and several party rooms booked for private functions.  

However, the announcement has since been removed and the page has been advertising its opening hours.

In another Facebook post, the owners confirmed that “someone has offered to take over the jungle in February” but also clarified that “nothing is certain at this point.” The current owners, however, are still managing the facility until the 26th of January. No details of the new operators were revealed.

“This is a more intimate centre than some others which is nice, because it’s less overwhelming than the giant ones! Great service, lovely staff. Birthday parties are so easy and you don’t have to do a thing – heaven!” 


“Went for my sons birthday party today, was a great time, very clean place, staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was set up beautifully and the food was great too. Thank you so much Jindalee Jungle.” 


“Hosted our daughters 6th birthday here. Despite being a busy weekend the staff took great care of us. The food arrived at the exact time we asked for. It was really tasty and everything we asked was promptly taken care of. The play area is a bit small. So this place would be ideal for less than 5 year old however our 6 year old and her friends had a great time here. I would highly recommend this place.”
