For your information, the water park is currently closed as the area around the water park is undergoing rejuvenation. On the Hervey Bay Council website it states that it will be open again in September.

everyone has a great time lots of laughter while enjoying the water features. The staff are lovely with the children and the seating area is terrific. There is even an area for babies and toddlers that they love. All this and it doesn't cost anything!!! Well worth a visit.

Took our grandchildren who thoroughly enjoyed the water park. They particularly like the wave pool and mastered it without any problems.

What a great idea - a free water park for the children. Areas to play for both the young and older kids. Our kids had a great time there and kept asking to go back. The adults enjoyed the boardwalk.

ITS FREE!! The weather was cold wet and windy, yet the kids had a blast. The lifeguards on patrol were splendid and kept the order well! Whilst none of the adults took part (and stood because even though there were plenty of chairs and tables, they were all wet!), the kids loved the slides, the water bucket, the spouts, the... More

Unbelievable that this is a free water park. Hours of entertainment to cool down and a great education on water conservation
