If you take the time to visit this area I would advise you wear some good walking shoes. There is such a lot to see that is in close proximity to the wharf. They also make a great Barramundi burger on the waterfront.

This has a pool with fun blow up equipment in the water. You must pay to use the equipment but the pool area is free.

We went here thrice because this area was so welcoming. It was like being one with the locals. We witnessed one sunrise, a sunset and spent one afternoon at the beach amidst its well manicured gardens and tropical feeling property.
