We went for a walk on Anzac Day 2019. The water was dark brown with thick brown foam crests. Because it had been raining for a few weeks the sewerage treatment plant had overflow into the river and the ocean. It was a health hazard.

Always worthy of a stop for a swim and walk. Life savers are always there for safety. Body boarding possible but not surfing. Fun waves for swimming.

Great touristy post. Good selection of cafes, shops etc. Playgrounds for the kids. Gets very busy in holiday season though and it's a nightmare for parking.

We took public bus No 600 from Kawana station platform 2 to Sixth Ave at Maroochy Library. The beach was just a short walk away. Nice to stop here for a while and enjoy the breeze.
