Beautiful surroundings, stunning location, worth a visit. Toilets are nearby. Easy to find. It's a great place to sit and unwind or to have a picnic. Car parking is close by. You would need to bring your own food/ drinks as no nearby restaurants etc.

Friend of mine took me here on my last day in QLD. What a terrific idea. Sitting on the edge dangling your feet in the water. Great to see so many kids & parents enjoying this place. Highly recommend to all.

Our kids had some terrific time swimming at the rock pool. This place is fun for kids! Once they were in there they did not want to come out. We sat and watched them enjoying with other kids. Best of all it is free. Highly recommended for families with Kids.

This is a great spot for families with young children. The grounds are clean and well maintained. Bring a blanket and have a picnic or buy from the cafe.

Lovely sunsets here, great for kids to wade around in the rock pools but remember to always be careful of waves coming in just in case, but it's a really pretty place to spend the day.
