“Very boring place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We stayed for 3 nights, nice town but no activities on offered for travellers. Feeding pelicans everyday @ 3:30pm in the town centre is all they have. Very boring place to be in, dining-in restaurants are over price for its quality and service, people are not welcoming. It's sad this town has so much potential.
AND NO bathroom facilities for town visitors if you need to go.

“Not as good as the past”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

There is some good seaside atmosphere but on the whole, it is becoming topheavy with high-rise and too commercial - looks more like a street shopping strip with a beach attached to it.
The pelicans are always an attraction and fun to watch but the rest is like any other beach town.
Perhaps it is ok for the first visit but once you have seen it a few times, the appeal tends to wane.

“Sunday Funday - great to entertain kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

There was much more here than we were expecting from a short weekend away. Great weather helped but there was a little train ride for the kids, the pelican feeding, splashing around in the little water park area and great fish and chips. Plenty of room for running around and a choice of two little playgrounds for variety made this a great Sunday funday.

“Typical beach town centre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Reasonable mix of shops, good range of restaurants and pubs. Was there over a weekend in August and it was pretty busy so guess summer would be crowded. Parked in the multi story car park which was easier than trying to get a park on the street. One thing puzzled me - for a town that is very tourist-focused, there are NO souvenir shops. The newsagent has a limited range, as does the Tourist Info, but I would have liked to get some TShirts to take home. I am an Aussie living in the states, and Americans are fascinated with the name The Entrance!
