Really nice place. Have a picnic lunch and it is a good day out but it's very busy and there not much there at all. Long as your happy to relax while the kids play then it's fine. 😊

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.
