“Fair to middling”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

A bit, something or nothing. Lake Alexander its self is nothing special at all. The views from the beaches/ cliffs around the park where Lake Alexander is situated are much more deserving of ones time. Also there were a lot of shoes hanging from the telephone cable so I'm guessing, that's the place to be if your looking for a smoke and a pancake.

“Nice outdoor area”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

The play area is great for kids, if your going to BBQ make sure you bring stuff to clean them first, the homeless use the facilities from time time, the council does clean them daily. Lots of shade and the lake is safe.

“Fabulous location!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Right at the coast nearby to Fannie Bay and is located near to shops & public amenities! Only difficulty can be the algal bloom or occasional croc! Be aware and read all the signs!
