Wobbies World was an amusement park (1970 to 1999) in Forest Hill.
The park was quite small in area and targeted mainly to the simple expectations of young children. The park consisted of many custom-built attractions, most very slow moving.
The park had some characteristic modes of transport including a circuit of monorail helicopters, mower motor driven 6 wheeler ATVs, a real Bell helicopter refurbished as a ground-mounted simulator, 4 Melbourne W2 class trams and a large Vickers Viscount propellar plane fitted out as a movie-projector simulator.
Who could forget taking a ride in the bell helicopter? The bell helicopter currently sits in a paddock on Dandenong-Frankston Rd.
The plane now resides at the Australian National Aviation Museum, in Moorabbin, while the Bell Helicopter was last seen dismantled and sitting in a paddock on the Dandenong Frankston road.
A plant nursery now resides on the Springvale Road site as well as the Saxon Wood townhouse estate, with the concrete castle, bridges, a train station, the Birthday Room and the miniature golf course still remaining (within the nursery) from the former amusement park.
Now, Saxon Wood is a dream come true for adults. Saxon Wood will feature 32 double storey homes in a variety of designs and sizes ranging from 141 to 197 square metres and 12 apartments in a stylish three-storey building. Both the homes and apartments will feature the luxurious interiors and stylish finishes for which Australand is renowned.
The park closed down in 1999 and is now the site of the new Forest Hill police station.
