The Stringybark Picnic Area is large and grassy. The area nearest the toilet block is flat and then it slopes gently upwards past the playground to the cafe and visitors centre.
There are numerous picnic tables and wood fired barbecues in this area. The barbecues have a working height of 800 millimetres and the tables are the wooden fixed bench seat type. The table overhangs are approximately 300 millimetres.
There are newer electric barbecues with a working height of 900 millimetres near the picnic pavilion. They are operated by a small recessed push button switch. They are set on small concrete pads which are not large enough to accommodate a wheelchair.
The pavilion has tables with a large overhang at each end that would allow wheelchair users to sit at the table front facing.
