We love visiting here with our grandson. He just loves it. The Rockpools are great for kids, they love the water and the variety keeps them entertained. The safety aspect is good with rubberised floor in most areas. The rest of the park is awesome with loads to see an do. Add a café and free wi-fi and most everything is there. Australia Fair shopping centre over the road if you get the urge to shop.

great spot for families with kids. Well kept, clean, welcoming. Beautiful position right on the water. Can waste so much time there.

Beautiful spot to spend a couple of hours relaxing by the Broadwater with extensive open space and some waterside picnic tables with water views, Stroll out along the magnificent new public jetty, where you could even fish if that way inclined. There is a good artificial rockpool area for the kids to play in the water, and a few hundred metres away, a playground where the peddle train on a circular track is extremely popular. With it's own coffee shop, and just across from Australia Fair, it's also a great place to go after a bit of shopping.

Great fun - very clean safe water play area. Huge bucket fills with water and tips over the kids (and game adults) then flows down through the rock pools with lots of shallow larger pools and sprinklers.
