There's not many activities free these days but Westside is a definite must do. Entirely free , except for the surfing thing, this zero level water park provided hours of entertainment for my little ones. Only down side was the lack of anywhere nearby to buy lunch.

This is a great spot to take the kids on a hot day or if you just want to relax while viewing the beautiful bay as the kids have a fantastic time playing in the water park. This is fantastic value and the kids absolutely love the water guns, the water slide and the water jets to run around in.... More

Good spot to take the little kids in summer as it's free and there is also a café on the premises. Also there is a mechanical surf section (user pay) for the older kids.

This is a great fun place to take the kids, they come home really tired and full of great memories. I like the fact you can take a picnic and still enjoy the day

If you go to the bay take the kids to this water park, it is free and it is amazing. All three of my kids had a ball there are water jets, water buckets, slides, guns, buckets, whales. I liked the walking deck with all the information on each pole about water. It has a great view of the beach... More
