Great place to take the dogs for a walk and watch the sunset. Beautiful and clean, not too busy. Has some damage from the cyclone, but nothing to detach from the beauty of the beach.

What a lovely beach. You can walk there for kilometres and very often you wont meet anyone or only 5 to 7 people. Awesome. The only downside: you cannot swim there (or rather take extra care as there might be crocs or stingers in there)....More

walked down the beach for about 300 meters to get to the water. Low tide makes the beach so bear. Saw tiny sand crab just look exactly like a grain of sand. Had a quick walk in the water and came up. It's so strange...More

Stopped here and ate fish and chips on the beach. No one swimming on the long stretch of water. Had planned on taking a swim but with no one in the water just enjoyed walking the sand

Reserve your time for this nature park/ area. Easy to access with great facilities. Definitely recommend.

Perhaps a little underrated but we found this coastal drive very pleasant and captivating, getting to see much of the bay. Few good shady spots along the way for a picnic. Leisurely area away from the city buzz.

What a delight. Wonderful walk to the beach, able to dip our toes into warm sea. Make sure you check out the great iced latte at Surf life saving Cafe on the way and relax in a hammock

Such a pity the waterways and seas are mostly not swimmer friendly. BUT they are certainly scenic and are a great place for leisurely sunset walks.
